Beautiful Dancer

Kristin Olson

Dancer’s pose (Natarajasana) is often thrown in as a standing balancing pose in the middle of a class. It is actually a very deep backbend. The shoulders and hip flexors and the spine must be opened, and, in particular the mid-upper back needs to be warmed. This 60-minute level 2 class takes students through a proper warm-up and standing pose sequence so that the mind and body are ready for the demands of Dancer’s pose.
