#EveryBodyYoga Day 16 - Dancer Pose

Day Sixteen of the
#EveryBodyYoga Challenge

{Dancer Pose}

Dancer Pose helps to build strength, flexibility, and coordination throughout your body while helping to improve posture! The pose opens your shoulders, chest, and hips, as it stretches and strengthens your thighs, ankles, and abdomen. Most importantly, Dancer Pose improves your ability to concentrate and focus! Practice Dancer Pose to improve poise and grace in everyday life.

Getting into this pose is actually pretty simple, finding balance in this pose is the challenge for me. You will begin by shifting your weight onto one foot, bending your other leg at the knee, and lifting your foot up behind your thigh with the knee pointing down. Hold the inside of your ankle with your hand, then gently press your ankle into your hand, reaching your knee back and up.  Let your body lean forward as you extend your lifted leg and reach your other arm up. Breathe and enjoy the stretch.
