Keep the knees together. This is the starting position. Inhale and lift the right leg from the back side. Pull the soles of the feet backwards. Keep the right arm straight. Do not bend the knee of the left leg.
To balance, bring the left hand in front of the shoulder. Keep the arm straight. Make a left hand posture. That is, join the tip of the thumb and the first finger.
Keep the remaining three fingers straight. Stay in this state for a few seconds. After that come back to the starting position. Similarly, practice Nataraja asana with the other leg as well.
