the yoga Dance pose
needs balance held with deep breaths
centered inside me
the beat of my heart keeps time
with the ballet of our Earth

Life is a dance. Balance is necessary for dancing. Everyone needs balance in their dance of life. xo

To Perform the Lord of the Dance Pose

  1. Begin in Mountain Pose.
  2. Activating your right foot, and on an exhale, bring your left leg back with your left hand. Make sure to draw your navel inward as you move the tailbone down.
  3. Keep your torso straight and upright. If you need to extend the opposite hand for balance, take care not to strain the lower back as your torso moves forward.
  4. Pull the shoulders down as you arc into the pose.
  5. Stabilize the body on the standing leg, and hold the pose for 30 seconds.
  6. To release the pose, exhale and bring the leg down slowly. Center yourself in Mountain Pose, then repeat on the other side.
