Devaduuta panna asana is an aesthetically pleasing pose that symbolizes the embodiment of grace regardless of circumstance. It teaches that true grace, inner strength and lightness come from within, and are present despite any metaphorical "fall" in one's life.
The posture has mental and emotional benefits in that it calms and soothes the mind. It creates discipline and builds strength by overcoming the fear of entering the posture. It may also build confidence because many students find it easier than they expect to.
Devaduuta panna asana should be practiced mindfully, staying connected with the breath.
