7 Kundalini Yoga Postures to Clear the Chakras
“Men of great knowledge actually found out about the chakras – their workings, their petals, their sounds, their infinity, their co-relationship, their powers. They found that the life of a human is totally based on these chakras. They developed into a whole science. This total science gave birth to Kundalini Yoga. That is how Kundalini Yoga was born.” – Yogi Bhajan The human body is a complex system encompassing vast energy systems that are not immediately perceptible with our limited eyes. Asana,or postures, are positions of the body used to activate and direct energy to open both a physical and an energetic position in the body. 1) First Chakra, the Root Chakra (Muladhara): Foundations, fear, survival Asana: Crow Pose 2) Second Chakra, the Sacral Chakra (Svadisthana): Creation, desire, relationships Asana: Frog Pose Keep the heels together and the fingers on the ground. 3) Third Chakra, the Solar Plexus (Manipura): Will, action Asana: Stretch Pose Asana: Camel Pose Asana: Cobra Pose Related:  yogaPEACE & MEDITATIONYoga

Yoga Beginners Expert Q&A - Asanas for the Chakra System A prescription of asanas to help balance the subtle energies of the chakra system. By Barbara Kaplan Herring Seventh Heaven There are seven chakras, or energy centers, in the body that become blocked by longheld tension and low self-esteem. The chakra system provides a theoretical base for fine-tuning our yoga practice to suit our unique personality and circumstances. Each chakra is associated with particular functions within the body and with specific life issues and the way we handle them, both inside ourselves and in our interactions with the world. These imbalances may develop temporarily with situational challenges, or they may be chronic. A deficient chakra neither receives appropriate energy nor easily manifests that chakra's energy in the world. When a chakra is excessive, it is too overloaded to operate in a healthy way and becomes a dominating force in a person's life. Next: Muladhara Chakra (Root) Page 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8

Free meditations: how to meditate and attain inner peace and freedom Mission - Surya Namaskar - Sun Salutation Surya Namaskar or the Sun Salutation is a most complete series of postures. It is a very good exercise which takes only a few minutes to do and serves as a warm up routine before the practice of yoga asanas. It is one of the best home exercises requiring little space, only eight by three feet. Be sure to have enough space to lie down, and enough clearance to stretch the arms above the head while standing. Surya namaskar consists of a sequence of twelve postures performed continuously and combined with synchronized breathing. Each position counteracts the preceding one producing a balance between flexions and extensions. These 12 exercises are 1 round of surya namaskar. A healthy person requires a minimum practice of 12 or 16 rounds of surya namaskar each day. Surya namaskar's sequence of postures is most scientific as it completes the circuit within the body.
