Day 10: Fallen Angel Pose| Devaduuta Panna Asana

Day 10 #cdflessonsfromyoga: Fallen Angel Pose| Devaduuta Panna Asana  
Today’s lesson is about living shame free. It’s about realizing that in life, no matter what mistakes you make or have made, there’s always grace and forgiveness and acceptance. Often this is easier to award others than ourselves. I speak for myself when I say that I can forgive all day long but when it comes to giving myself grace, I don’t believe I’m worth it a lot of times. Which I know isn’t true, but it is a battle that I’m constantly fighting in my soul, spirit, and mind. This next excerpt is from @kathrynbudig in an article on this pose from @yogajournal. I love how everything in life is intertwined. From doing yoga to lessons on life:
| “As I’ve returned to my asana practice, I found myself deeply connected with Fallen Angel. Aside from the aesthetic beauty of the pose, I love the story telling that dances around the posture. It embodies what it must be like to fall from grace, to hit the ground hard, but remember once you’ve hit rock bottom that there is no such thing as falling from grace because no one can ever take it away from you. It is our birthright and our duty to maintain it and keep our inner grace shining. This posture presents a huge physical challenge as well as emotional. Practice keeping your grace regardless of your circumstances, keeping yourself in a place of allowing, and remembering that the past is behind you and the present is full of opportunity. So enjoy this fall, knowing that the lift and grace always come from within.”|
