Fallen Angel

Intermediate III

Challenge yourself and build strength, in this energizing and fun class. With a focus on arm strength and arm balances, work your way mindfully into Fallen Angel or Devaduuta Panna Asana. This pose is a variation on revolved crow that is a fun and graceful pose to play with.

I love me a Jonni-Lyn class but I have to agree with other comments here that this really should be listed as an Intermediate I class.

Sequence prepares you to attempt the pose that your mind tells you it is too hard to get to. Awesome class!

A wonderful class to start my day today - a calm pace but fun and energising, and I really enjoyed the breath cues today. Thank you!

Such a wonderful class! A little hard, a little relaxing, very round and as always, I love when you chant with us! Thank you, Jonni.

Love how she weaves in breathwork, chanting and Pantanjali wisdom!

Jonni-Lyn is incredible. Her calm energy and confidence in her students instills a self-confidence that has allowed me to explore and find poses that I never believed I could do. Thank you Jonni-Lyn.

Thanks Jonni-Lyn, great class. I like the extra explanation around a certain theme you seem to do in your classes (shoulders for this one). It's nice way to learn the poses in more depth class by class.

I was a little nervous about this class based on the preview photo and level, but no need! While I did not get into fallen angel, Jonni-Lyn made is seem very accessible. I loved the cues given during the class, especially around the shoulder girdle. Thank you, Jonni-Lynn, for the calm positive energy and a thoughtful sequence!

Although I am not quite there for side crow/fallen angel, I was able to find ways to fit this class on to my body today. Thank you.

A fine class for intermediate I but for III I'm looking for a class that will challenge my nervous system to stay calm during prolonged strenuous activity, at the very least break a sweat. I tried to modify to make it more difficult but still couldn't find the practice I was looking for.

This class is probably closer to Intermediate I or Intermediate II. Nice, slow pace, and detailed instructions on side crow for beginning students.

Since I am also quite far away from fallen angel, I did crow instead. Felt good in the flow of movements. I liked the vinyasas, they got me into a good rhythm. Thanks!

great class but would have loved some options when the side crow and fallen angel pose come along. i found myself watching instead of doing any pose

Phenomenal class again from Jonni-Lyn - I have been looking forward to doing the class all day - and it didn't disappoint. Really look forward to one of Jonni-Lyn's classes popping up on the 22 day power up challenge. Love the completeness of the class (feature of all JLF's classes), the excellent instruction and the stretch the classes provide in terms of moving my practice forward. Thank you!

My respect and awe of Jonni-Lyn increases with every new classes she leads. Her precise and encouraging instruction of Fallen Angel made it possible for me to lift off and fly! Thanks, friend!

Well, any class with Jonni-Lyn is awesome, even if your Fallen Angel resembles a baby side crow. "Your ear becomes the balancing point" Lol, maybe next life time... Lots of great poses and good spirit in this class.

Great cues. I’ll repeat this class. I’ve never done fallen angel, but will work on it.

This was a nice practice and I got to wake up the muscles I need to move towards the "fallen angel" pose. I did giggle at the 'it's not very hard...' I hope to be able to say that for myself one day, and until then I'll come back to this practice to get a little closer. :)

I loved this. However, I got a shooting pain in my left hip when trying side crow on the left side. Would love any tips to ease that tightness!

I love the gleam in Jonni-Lyn's eye and the way she cues "Other Side" after the first attempt at Fallen Angel. It's perfect!

In spite of not being anywhere near ready for Fallen Angel, I still found this to be a lovely, deliberate, and calming practice.

Excellent guidance. I must have been ready for this one although I sat out the side crow and fallen angel in favor of forward crow (which I normally can’t do) and extended child’s pose. Thank you!

The opening image scared me—definitely not a level 3, but I could do a lot of this class. I love the spirit Ms. Friel brings.

I enjoyed the twists, trying Fallen Angel, and core strength exercises. I just wish that Jonni-Lyn would not rush through vinyasas, which seems to be a common pattern in her classes. It makes me feel as though she is only interested in certain poses and not focusing on the flow itself. Over the years I have focused on not getting sloppy in vinyasa and being mindful to really use the breath to move through each movement. I don't want to have to revert to sloppy movements where I could actually injure myself so I have to purposely slow down myself and not follow her pacing during these parts.
In this class she also rushed through the breathing during downward dog - She instructs us to take 5 long inhales and exhales but she rushes through this on both occasions. It would have been better if she had said to just take 3 long breathes and then not rush through them. : )

YES. I love Jonni-Lyn's classes, but I also don't like a rushed vinyasa flow because I also have found that I am not as "settled" into the flow, and this makes me wary of running the risk of injury.

I'd never tried fallen angel before! It was very fun. And through this challenge I am really enjoying Jonni-Lyn's classes and teaching approach.

Thanks Jonni for this class. I almost made side crow/fallen angel, I fell a few times but for the first time I wasn't afraid to try it.
