Down Dog Dancer Pose

Strike a Yoga Pose: Down Dog Dancer

Balancing poses challenge our muscles as well as our minds. Some are harder than others, and if your back and hamstrings are flexible, you'll love this one, which is a combination of Downward Facing Dog and Dancer.

Sanskrit Name: Adho Mukha Svana Natarajasana
English Translation: Downward Facing Dog Dancer Pose
  • Begin in Downward Facing Dog with equal weight on your hands and feet.
  • Raise your right leg up in the air and bend your knee. Then lift your right arm up and reach for your right foot. Arching your spine and kicking your foot away from you will help you stay balanced.
  • After five breaths, release your hand and foot to the floor, coming back into Down Dog. Then repeat this pose on the left side.
