Natarajasana Dancer’s Pose

This is the basic level Dancer Pose. (Natarajasana) I consider this pose to be a high beginner or Intermediate level pose. It strengthens the legs, and opens the hip flexors, spinal column, shoulders and heart. A challenging balancing posture for sure.

Pincha Mayurasana Yoga Forearm Stand, Elbow Stand

I’ve been tweaking this posture since I first started practicing it sometime around the age of 50 (working with the wall.) Now 12 years later, I still find it quite challenging but also extremely rewarding. So now at 62, I try to come up into it once per day if at all possible!

You can check out my handstand here – – still a work in progress!

Yoga Boca Raton Handstand Practice

At 61 I still have the goal of mastering the handstand – – I began this journey late in life, in my 50’s with absolutely no experience – no gymnastics background – nothing! – Over the years I’ve gotten stronger. Core strength and arm strength are critical for mastering this. For me the definition of “mastery” is just to let go of the FEAR. I recently started pumping iron again (7 weeks before my 62nd birthday). I’ve noticed that the handstands are coming easier now as my upper body gets stronger. This photo was taken at LA Fitness in Delray Beach, FL.
