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!

Vishuddha Chakra and Yoga Practice

How can you balance your vishuddha chakra and yoga?

Halasana- By compressing the throat chakra, the pose squeezes out all negativity and opens the back of the neck. This action also stimulates the thyroid glad and is great for treating any major ailments due to an imbalanced throat chakra.

Ashtanga Namaskar- this pose is meant to represent the eight limbs of Ashtanga Yoga as outlined by Patanjali in the Yoga Sutra.  The front of the throat is very open in this pose.  We spend so much time using devices that keep our chin stuck to our chest so this is an intense balancing pose.

Viparita Karani asana (legs up the wall)- This is a therapeutic pose and is recommended to ease any form or stress and tension.  It relaxes the organs from the gravitational pull they face on an everyday basis, the pose changes the flow of blood.  It increases the blood flow in the neck and throat area, stimulates the thyroid gland, and expands the Vishuddha Chakra.

Matsyendrasana- Feel the chest and throat open as you roll back onto the top of the head. Press down through legs, hands, and elbows to keep your neck supported.  This pose will inspire you to speak your truth!

Salamba Sarvangasana- Much like Halasana, this pose compresses the throat and stimulates the thyroid.  Any time we are upside down, we bring blood flow to the heart and stimulate our metabolism and circulation.

You could also try connecting to your Throat Chakra with the essential oils of Tea Tree, Lavender, Geranium, Bergamot, Cypress, and Frankincense.  I suggest doTERRA Essential oils! I also enjoy balancing the chakra with chakra singing bowls (paid link). Vishuddha chakra and yoga will help you find your ultimate truth.

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

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!
