Essence of Asana
Aside from the aesthetic beauty of this pose, Fallen Angel reveals to us our original spiritual connection. It emphasizes our humanness with all its glory and it reminds us of the importance of embodying, connecting and hearing our spiritual origins.
Fallen angel in its postural practice reveals to us what it is like to hit the rock bottom, to hit the ground hard but it also reminds us that there is only one way up. As we start to remember that no matter what ‘fall’ we are experiencing - strength, courage, compassion and Grace come from within.
Fallen angel teaches us to keep our Grace no matter what circumstance. Sometimes that can mean we need to open our wings wide open so that we can fall from the Grace and rise to our highest Selves embracing our nature and surrendering in trust.
