LORD OF THE DANCE POSE INSTRUCTIONS
1. Start in mountain pose, transfer your weight to the left leg, bend your right knee and bring your foot toward your right buttock.
2. Reach back with your right hand, grasp your foot, and raise the left hand up toward the ceiling.
3. Hold the pose for 20 to 30 seconds, return to mountain pose, and then repeat on the opposite side.
Engage your core, open the chest, breathe deeply and shift your gaze upward. Lift your right foot up and back, and extend your right thigh parallel to the floor.
The lord of the dance pose is a backbend that opens up and stretches the chest, shoulders, quads, abs and hip flexors. This pose strengthens the back, legs and ankles, boosts concentration and improves balance.
