Shiva Natarajasana

 

The Dance of Shiva, Shiva Natarajasana or Shiva Nata is a beautiful practice, of great depths that will unfold and show themselves through time and commitment.

As well as increased confidence and co-ordination of the arms and a testing brain work out, you will benefit from a fantastic shoulder work out too, opening your upper spine, chest and shoulders.

In my online classes I will endeavour to help you progress through a supported self practice.  You may find it helpful to write down the sequences as a good way to think through the movements.

 

You will hopefully discover that it is that testing point where we struggle to work things out that the real learning is happening.  It would be wonderful if you can celebrate and struggle through those moments in class with us.  However to get you started I have broken down the initial arm positions for the Vertical and Horizontal spirals below.
