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.

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!
