The dance of the enchantress,
Thriving and exuding abundant grace,
The movements of ‘Lasya',
The charming flow of the body,
That weaves around this elegant style,
Tenderly embroidered in silken threads of ‘Mudras',
Magnificent sentiment of love and beauty.
A soft, lyrical style instructs the dancers,
To dance with stylish gaits,
To bend the body into stunning postures,
To perform effortlessly with ease,
To overcome all the afflictions of the body,
To control the fluctuations of the mind,
To focus only on the dance as a prayer to the Almighty.
The slow, ethereal motion of the body
That seems easy, flowing, charming
Is but a misconceived notion!
The dance is all about restraint,
A concentrated effort to elevate the mind,
A meditative journey towards perfection!
A dance with Yogic discipline
A ‘Nritya Yoga'!
