It is said that, although this posture looks beautiful and serene, it teaches patience, mental strength and resilience. The challenging nature of the posture means it requires determination to balance on one leg while keeping the other extended and the core engaged. It can also be a valuable lesson in letting go of expectations and simply accepting the journey toward the posture. This may be a journey of stumbling and difficulty, but, ultimately, it leads to a posture of real beauty, like the flower which is its namesake.
Svarga dvijasana can also be described as a celebration of assymmetry. It is considered a creative and expressive posture. It is also associated with balancing the muladhara and svadisthana chakras.
