Happy Saturday! This yoga pose can be challenging at first as it is hard to keep your balance. Feel free to use a chair or wall for balance.

  1. Begin in mountain pose. Ground down through your right foot. Lift and spread the toes and distribute your weight evenly on that foot.
  2. Bend your left knee and grab hold of the inside arch of your left foot with your left hand.
  3. Reach your right arm toward the sky.
  4. Bring your knees together and square your hips.
  5. Put your left foot firmly into your hand, kicking it back and up. Counterbalance by lowering your torso. Reach your right arm forward.
  6. Hold for five breaths, holding a chair/wall for balance as needed. Repeat on your other side.

Lord of the Dance Benefits:

  • Strengthens shoulders, chest, hips, and toes

  • Calms your mind

Have a good weekend. Stay safe! 😷
