What is the Chakra system?  Chakras are the energy sources that are placed in seven different points on the spinal column.  They are responsible for disturbing the life energy and can get out of balance. But yoga poses can help bring the chakra’s into balance.  Come with me on a seven week Chakra Journey into energy balance!

What is to give light must first endure burning.

The Solar Plexus Chakra energy is focused at the solar plexus and is associated with the color yellow and our force of will, power, joy, and anger.

Manipura Chakra and Yoga Practice

How can you balance your manipura chakra and yoga?

Manipura Chakra and Yoga

Plank pose- hold this pose as long as it is comfortable, or until you feel heat rising up through your belly.  Focus on tightening your abdominal and stomach muscles.

Manipura Chakra and Yoga

Dhanurasana presses right into the Solar Plexus.  It can remind you of Mhulabanda, the power source right at the navel.  Stoke that power by rocking into this lift.

Manipura Chakra and Yoga

Cobra pose releases the muscles in the abdomen.  As we lift away from the floor, we stretch and lengthen the muscles to relieve pressure through the abdomen.

Manipura Chakra and Yoga

Yoga crunches- move into this pose from three-legged down dog.  Round through the shoulders and back and squeeze the abdominals.  Do this pose for reps or just hold in the tuck until the abdominals are on fire!

Manipura Chakra and Yoga

Pravritta Ashta Chandrasana- twists are a great way to fire up the core.  As we squeeze, we tighten the digestive system.  Then when we release, new blood flow enters the system to help rejuvenate our digestion.  What a great way to cleanse!

You could also try connecting to your manipura Chakra and yoga with the essential oils of Roman Chamomile, Ginger, Bergamot, Vetiver, Rosemary, Peppermint, Coriander, Lemon, and Melissa.  I suggest doTERRA Essential oils. I also love chakra singing bowls (paid link). Try them out for yourself! 

The chakras are a journey, manipura chakra and yoga included. Take the Journey full journey: Root, Sacral, Solar Plexus, Heart, Throat, Third Eye, and Crown.

Success! You're on the list.

Yoga is my passion, teaching is my life. I started teaching yoga when my husband entered the US Air Force and now my career travels with me. Every time I move, I look for places to teach and a community of caring yogis who I grow to love and then one day, leave behind. This is a place where we can reconnect and create our yoga together. This site can travel with you. Welcome!
