Day 4 #IndoindiansYogaChallenge: NATARAJA- Dancer Pose

NATARAJA- Dancer Pose

Going into the asana: 
– Shift your weight onto the right foot. Bend your left knee to lift your left foot off the floor.
– Grasp the instep of your left foot with your left hand.
– Lift your right arm straight up to the ceiling.
– Lift your left leg behind you as you bring your torso forward as a counterbalance. Your right arm will also move forward.
– Kick your left foot strongly into your left hand to lift the leg higher and deepen the backbend.

 

Effects of the asana: 
– strengthens the legs
– improves balance
– improves core strength
– stretches the shoulders
– opens the hip flexors (psoas muscles) as a counter to tight hips that develop from too much sitting
– improves focus
– improves concentration
– stretches and strengthens the thighs, ankles, and abdomen
– develops greater flexibility in your spine, shoulders, and hamstrings
– strengthening the back muscles
– improves posture

Tips & Requirements:

  • Wear comfortable lose clothes during the asanas.
  • Use a yoga mat or a carpet to perform your asanas. Don’t directly practice on the floor.
  • Practice on an empty stomach empty or at least 2-3 hours of gap between meals.
