My favourite pose

dancerI am really enjoying dancer pose at the moment. Dancer pose (natrajasana) looks and feels elegant but has amazing benefits for the whole body.

The whole legs are toned and strenghtened, the hips are opened as well as the shoulders and chest. Also, the gentle back bend strengthens the spine.

Dancer is also great for the mind. During the pose the mind is focused so improving concentration. The breath becomes steady and the mind becomes calm.

To perform dancer, begin in mountain pose and shift the weight to the right foot. Lift the left foot, bending the knee and take hold of the left foot with the left hand behind you. Take the left foot out behind the body and stretch the right arm up and out. Keep the chest open and lengthen through the left leg and right arm. Release and repeat on the other side.
