Lord of the Dance variations step by step.

1. When in Tadasana, inhale and with your left hand take hold of the left foot. At the same time extend your right arm forward and completely straight.

2. Continue to raise your right arm and simultaneously raise the left leg as high as you can with the help of the left arm.

3. Maintain the pose while breathing gently, and keep your view focused just above the horizon.

4. Initially you can stay in the pose for one minute and increase the time gradually as your comfort level increases.

 

The King of Dance pose or Nataraja asana is a flowing pose. It is also known as the Lord of Dance Pose and derives directly from ancient Hindu traditions and Nataraja, the Hindu God Shiva and his mythical dance. The dance routine is believed to be representative of the energy flowing through the universe. It is extremely beneficial as a balancing pose and is also useful for its other benefits. It acts as a stretching exercise for the body, both upper and lower regions simultaneously. It also strengthens the legs, and tones the hip and thigh muscles. The King of Dance pose also provides a good stretch for the chest muscles and aligns the vertebrae. It is in fact restorative for the spine and helps to make it supple and eliminate stress or strain that results from poor posture.

—-To derive the benefits of these poses you need to practice yoga in a flowing sequence.—-

Meditation will open doors you didn’t even know you were knocking. 

Give it a try. Start with 5 minutes a day, just close your eyes, try and focus only on your breathing. Increase the time of meditation each week. Your mind and your body will beg for it. 

Feel free to ask anything, I will do my best to help.
