Last year my yoga girls and I did a 30-Day Yoga & Meditation Program with our online essential oils community. You certainly do not have to be an EO user to benefit from our videos!
My good friend who also happens to be one of the best yoga instructors I know, Kristin (check out her blog and facebook page!) walked me through this 32-minute heart opening chakra flow that you can do right at home! This practice is great for all levels.
What are the chakras?
Chakras is a Sanskrit word meaning wheels or circles which are connected to 7 different energy levels in the human body symbolizing 7 colors of the rainbow. These Chakras function as valves that either let energy in or out. It is believed that Chakras regulate all functions of our mind, body and spirit.
These swirling wheels of energy correspond to massive nerve centers in the body. Each of the seven main chakras contains bundles of nerves and major organs as well as our psychological, emotional, and spiritual states of being. Since everything is moving, it’s essential that our seven main chakras stay open, aligned, and fluid. If there is a blockage, energy cannot flow.
Keeping a chakra open is a bit more of a challenge, but not so difficult when you have awareness. Since mind, body, soul, and spirit are deeply connected, awareness of an imbalance in one area will help bring the others back into balance.If we experience emotional pain, that pain may manifest itself into a health condition, such as a cough in the chest (affecting the heart chakra). Trying to see the connection between the emotional pain and illness as an energy issue may help with healing.
