Yoga Pose May – Dancer Pose

Posted May 25 2010 9:29am

Hello luvs,

Today was my day to take part in the Yoga Pose May event that the lovely Tina and Kate put together. The Yoga Pose May challenge was designed to have different bloggers feature a different yoga pose on their blog.

My pose was called Dancer Pose also known as Lord of the Dance Pose.

The dancer pose is great for balance and strength!

  • Stretches the shoulders and chest
  • Stretches the thighs, groins, and abdomen
