Asana of the Day: Dancer

Lord of the Dance, or Dancer Pose, is a graceful and powerful pose.

I love this pose because of the strong backbend that targets each side of your back. In this respect, you can isolate the left side backbend and the right side backbend. It strengthens and compresses the low back, opens the chest, tones the core, and can be a great active quad stretch. Because of the focus on opening the front of the body in Dancer, it's great to pair with forward folding and twisting.

Trouble balancing? Grab a wall.

Trouble catching your foot? Grab a strap or tie.
