Fallen Angel Pose

While fall is a great time to cozy up inside with a good book and tea, you can spice up your yoga practice with a bit more than turmeric this year and try Fallen Angel Pose. It’s a modern spin that adds a bit more height to Eka Pada Koundinyasana I.

Fallen Angel is a balanced pose with a twist. This pose can be a fun and creative addition to your practice. It is best performed after warming the body up with 3-5 rounds of Surya Namaskar A and 3-5 rounds of Surya Namaskar A.

Open the Spine with Ardha Matsyendrasana

Fallen Angel is a full-body workout that requires strength in arms, legs, and core. Fallen Angel is not possible if your back is too tight. The upper arm cannot twist to make contact with the opposing thigh.

Ardha Matsyendrasana opens the entire back, including the shoulders, hips, and neck.

Balance Play in Bakasana & Parsva Bakasana

Fallen Angel is an arm balance. It is recommended that the neck and head are not weighted. Strengthening the arms and core is important to maintain lightness when doing this pose.

Bakasana, or Crow Pose, is a useful preparatory position because it strengthens your arms, wrists, and upper back. This helps you fall gracefully in Fallen Angel rather than failingfall with force. Parsva Bakasana (pictured above), or Side Crow, is the next stage in balance and preparation.

Train your brain in Eka Pada Koundinyasana II

Fallen Angel is similar to Eka Pada Koundinyasana 1 in terms of the physical requirements. Both poses require joint mobility and muscle flexibility. Eka Pada Koundinyasana 1 prepares the body for Fallen Angel without the risk of falling.

How to Build a Foundation on the Ground

Start in a crouching position with your legs pressed together. Walk both hands to one side. The arms should be slightly wider than the distance between your hips. Imagine where your arms are most comfortable and supportive when you are doing Chaturangadandasana or Bakasana. That is the place where they will be in Fallen Angel.

Start to tip your shoulders slowly over the wrists, and make sure that they stop at the elbows. Now, keep the toes close to the floor or on the ground. This is the time to experiment with twisting the side body at the navel. For now, the drishti can be in the direction of the knees.

Fallen Parsva Bakasana

The body will behave like a seesaw as the feet slowly lift from the ground. As the head lowers toward the Earth, the feet will continue to rise. The pilot will descend faster if the feet are lifted more quickly. To protect your head and neck, you need to control the core and lift the legs with awareness.

The lift will be easier to control if the legs are hugged together. Hips and feet may move at the same speed and time. The weight will be supported by the arms, allowing the head to rest lightly and serve as a balance point. Squeeze the arms constantly to keep the elbows above the wrists.

Fallen Angel

If you’ve completed the second step, then most of your work is already done. Your core will work to keep you light. The last movement is to lift the top leg. Lift the leg opposite to your twist.

Note: Lifting the leg can put pressure on your head or neck. The best thing to do is lower the leg and then hold steps 1 and 2 until you have enough strength in your core and arms to be able to lift it without placing weight on the skull.

The toes may be pointed, flexed, or both. What is important is that the energy they generate will defy gravity and allow the body to release into Fallen Angel. Enjoy the free fall.
