Ajna Chakra and Yoga Practice
How can you balance your ajna chakra and yoga?
Dolphin pose is a great strengthener for the core and arms but you can also focus on being present in this pose by bringing your thumbs to your third eye and focusing all the attention to the eye center. Your head rush will help with his sensation.
Virabhadrasana III- Balance poses need a keen focus in order to remain steadily standing. Focus or Drishti, comes from our eyes so we can visualize standing strong and steady in this unsteady world.
Garudasana- This pose brings our hands right by our third eye and forces our focus to change as we cannot see past our hands. “Garuda” means to devour. Let this pose devour ego, doubt, fear, and clear the way for loving intention.
Humble Warrior- “For us to speak our truth, our head and our heart need to be congruent. If what we think and what we feel are in opposition to one another, the words we speak are going to be deeply influenced by that incongruence. Shoulder openers create a broad channel between the head and heart.” Seane Corn.
Prasarita Padottanasana with Gomukhasana arms- Open the energy in the third eye and crown chakra here by getting the hips above the head and heart to flush the pituitary and pineal glands. This helps to ignite the heart and stimulate.
You could also try connecting to your Third-Eye Chakra with the essential oils of Basil, Sandalwood, Ylang Ylang, Clary Sage, Lavender, Roman Chamomile, and Frankincense. I suggest doTERRA Essential oils! I also enjoy balancing the chakras will chakra singing bowls (paid link). Think of your future as you practice ajna chakra and yoga.
