Open your heart & overcome fear with natarajasana
This week my classes continue January’s theme of new beginnings focusing on overcoming fear.
We’ll confront three fears on our mats: the fear of falling, our fear of the world turning upside down and the fear of opening our hearts.
Natarajasana or dancer pose will feature in all of my classes this week. It’s a challenging balance so helps us overcome our fear of falling. And it’s so much more than that! It strengthens the legs, it opens the heart and hips, and it stretches pretty much everything.
Best of all I find it makes me feel elegant and graceful, which on a personal level brings an added level of joy to my yoga.
Natarajasana is named for Shiva the dancer, who, in this pose, beats a drum that marks the beginning and end of time. It’s a reminder for us to listen to our own inner rhythm and that each heartbeat is a new beginning.
I love this pose.
