Nataraja

'Yoga With Onmanorama', is a series from us that will help you practice and achieve steadiness in asanas. Through this series, we will challenge you with one new asana every week. Readers can tweet their pictures doing the asana with the hash tag #YogaWithOnmanorama. We will feature these tweets in an article at the end of every week.

Read: All you need to know about Yoga, writes Nuthan Manohar

Caution: Before taking up the challenge, go through the 'Who shouldn't do it' bit of every asana and follow it.

Natarajasana derives its name from the word 'Nata' which means dance. The pose resembles Shiva's dance posture (Shiva is also known as Nataraja).

Here's how you do it:

Benefits of Natarajasana

» Strengthens legs, hips, ankles and chest.

» Improves posture and your balance.

» Improves digestion

» Improves concentration

Precautions for Natarajasana

»Those suffering from low blood pressure should not practice Natarajasna.

»Seek the help of a friend, in the initial stages, to maintain proper balance.
