Nrtta is that sadhana (practice) through which the sadhaka (aspirant) rediscovers the rhythmic life currents hidden in the body's folds and limbs by means of unimposed natural positioning. Out of the one hundred and eight karanas mentioned in the Natya Shastra not more than thirty-six karanas are used for the purpose of self-cultivation of the yogangasadhana.
Difference between Nata and Nrtta
The term Nata refers to the adaptation of slight bodily movements that are important for the beginner. Nrtta embraces both the slight movements of the limbs and the large bodily shapes (known as karana) including Angahara (correct sequential arrangement). These all come under the common umbrella – Nrtta. Therefore Nata Yoga is a part of Nrtta Sadhana.
From 2012 Nrtta Sadhana is used as the term instead of Nata Yoga.
