Bird of Paradise | Svarga Dvijasana

Essence of Asana

A loose translation of this pose can be also translated as “Born twice in a paradise” as Dvija means “twice born” and Svarga means “paradise” or “heaven.” And so are birds being born twice – once as an egg and once as a bird.


Bird of Paradise | Svarga Dvijasana

Bird of Paradise is such a powerful action packed pose: it is a standing, balancing and a hip opening pose.

Before we even attempt to access this pose, we need to feel the strength of our breath and the openness to vulnerability and failure. We need to find the balance between strength and softness.


As we enter the pose we experience the intensity of the paradise. As we are becoming tall and expansive we renew our connection to the Divine.

With the extended leg out, this pose asks from us to find the spark that fuels our passion. It asks from us for dedication, patience and compassion.


Blessing

May we find the divine paradise within us. May the joy and happiness reside in our hearts dancing eternally immersed in bliss.
