Yogasana: The Fallen Angel #atozchallenge

My theme for this year’s  #atozchallenge is – 26 Yogasana. So brace yourself for 26 days of stretching, backbends and inversions, as I take you along my upside down evenings, sincerely hoping that you will find these posts helpful 🙂

 Fallen Angel

I fell in love with this pose ever since I saw it on Pinterest. It looks so graceful and mystical. But while practicing, I was all kinds of clumsy. Took me a while to get my legs straight 🙂

Here’s how I clumsily get into this pose 😛

This pose made me aware of my core, of my legs and arms that were supporting it. My whole body was engaged to maintain the balance and not tip over (which I did a lot in my early days, leading to the entertainment of my husband 😛 ) Fallen Angel also requires hip flexibility so it helped that I was already working on my side splits.

I am writing this series to detail my learning and experience during the practice. Please consult a Physician/Doctor before starting any exercise regime as some of the poses might contradict with your existing medical issues, for example injuries related to spinal cord, knee, ankle, wrists, neck, medical conditions like Migraine, Diabetics, Asthma etc.

 

Stay Strong and Humble! Namaste.
