Fallen Angel

 

 

 

 

 Fallen Angel is a funky andmodern spin that adds a bit more height to 

Eka Pada Koundinyasana I.

Fallen Angel is an arm balance with a twist (from the navel). A fun and funky addition to any practice, this pose is best done after warming up the body with 3-5 rounds of Surya Namaskar A (Sun Salutation A) and 3-5 rounds of

Surya Namaskar B (Sun Salutation B).

Fallen Angel requires a great deal of strength in the arms, legs, and core, it is a full-body workout. Regardless of strength, it is impossible to begin Fallen Angel if the back body is too tight for the upper arm to twist and make contact with the

opposite thigh.

Fallen Angel is primarily an arm balance and minimal to no weight is suggested to be placed on the head and neck. Therefore, strengthening the core and arms is essential to keep lightness in this pose.

Visually, it is obviously that Fallen Angel closely resembles Eka Pada Koundinyasana I. Physically the two poses require similar muscle engagement and joint mobility. Therefore, practicing Eka Pada Koundinyasana I aids the body in preparation for Fallen Angel without putting as much risk on falling on the head and neck.

Fallen Angel is one of thousands of fun new poses that have emerged from the widespread popularity and practice of yoga asana. Do you have any tips or comments about Fallen Angel or yoga pose variations you would like to learn?
