Dancer's Pose/natarajasana

2 posts in this topic

Hi everyone,

 

I think Dancer's Pose is so beautiful, but I have serious issues getting additional height with my extended leg (and flipping my grip). IAny advice, or complementary postures that may help?

I know Bikram yoga can be controversial, but the women who run my local Bikram studio were the ones who taught me to be able to see my foot above my head in my reflection in the mirror. They always say "it's the kick that drives the posture" - in other words, don't fling your body forward and lead with your arm and hope that pulls your leg higher, kick back and up to lead the posture. Hold your foot in your hand, get your balance, put your opposite hand up, and kick slowly and steady as high and hard into your hand as you can. I hope I've explained that okay - and, of course, lots and lots of practice  :)

 

I feel I do okay at this one, but it's still my 39 day challenge pose and I agree with you it's just so beautiful and graceful.
