You’ve been working hard on the pose of the month and going deep in Trikonasana (Triangle Pose), correct???
I thought since you’d been working so hard on all those little intricacies and getting down the basics of Trikonasana that you might like a little end of the month challenge to switch things up. Trikonasana is a twist – great for the inner, outer thighs, spine, low back and it’s very strengthening to your body. It also brings you into those lovely low belly and inner thigh muscles that are crucial to effectively getting the feet over the heart in yoga so you can really fly.
The challenge pose is Fallen Angel or in Sanskrit Devaduuta Panna Asana.
Fallen Angel is about grace, strength, vulnerability and surrender. It’s a reminder we must sometimes surrender to the fall in order to regroup and come back stronger and more flexible than before.
This is what it looks like. You can opt to go without a baseball cap 🙂
The journey into Fallen Angel begins with Mountain Pose (Tadasana)
Breathe! 5-10 breaths is optimal and smile….be happy…even if you don’t quite make it up…be happy!
To come out of the pose:
Here’s a super quick video tutorial…it’s in black and white. I was having a little fun with changing around the settings and it looks sort of vintage. As always, if you find it useful, please share it and leave a comment below on how it went for you if you give Fallen Angel a go!
