Dancer Pose

Natarajasana

Natarajasana (nata: 'dancer', raja: 'king', and asana: 'posture') is known as Lord of the Dance Pose, King Dancer Pose, or just Dancer Pose. It is a standing balancing pose combined with a backbend, that provides a full body stretch and strengthens the legs. Dancer Pose is a very graceful pose that promotes concentration, balance and grace. The full version of the pose (where both hands hold the raised foot) provides a deep backbend.
