Connect yourself to Lord Shiva and cosmic energy by practicing Natrajasana


Lord of the dance pose in its full expression resembles the dancing image of Lord Shiva and hence the Sanskrit name Natrajasana where ‘Nata’ means dance, ‘Raja’ means king and ‘Asana’ means seat or pose. When performed with dedication and concentration, this pose has the power to connect you to cosmic energy. Being a bit difficult pose, beginners should be careful while balancing and lifting the leg to prevent cramp at the back of the thigh.

Body Parts at Work

The balancing pose puts shoulders, chest, thighs, groins, abdomen, legs and ankles at work

Psychological Benefits

  • Gives the shoulders, chest, thighs, groins, and abdomen a good stretch
  • The balancing act not only improves the balance but also strengthens the legs and ankles
  • On regular practice, this pose helps to reduce weight

  • Relieves stress, calms the mind, and improves concentration

To reap benefits, this pose should be incorporated into daily routine. However, always practice under the guidance of a certified Yoga Practitioner and avoid if you have low blood pressure and ankle or any leg injury.
