How did the King Dancer Pose get its name?
Here, “nata” means “dancer, “raja” is “king” or “lord”, and “asana” refers to “pose”. Shiva was also known to be the Lord of the dance and referred to as Nataraja, therefore the pose is dedicated to him, hence the name. It is widely known by the English names, Dancer pose, lord of the dance pose, or king dancer pose.
