I was just on a yoga site that was talking about a pose called "Fallen Angel". Then this hit me (smack):

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 then I have tears of relief and gratitude.
