Yoga for the Chakras with Niki Feldman
Time & Location
About The Event
There are seven Chakras, or energy centers, in the body that can become blocked or over-active from long-held tension, low self-esteem, or over-stimulation. Practicing yoga poses that correspond to each chakra can restore balance in the corresponding area and promote healing and personal evolution.
In Sanskrit Chakra means ‘wheel’ or ‘circle of movement’. There are seven main Chakras or Energy Centers in the human body. They can be thought of as junction points between consciousness and physiology. Yoga is one of the ways to keep the Chakras balanced (not blocked and not hyperactive).
Muladhara (1st Chakra) is located in the Tailbone and Pelvic Floor area. It’s associated with Stability and Survival. When open we feel peaceful, protected and secure. When blocked we feel anxious and worried. Supportive methods include Foot, Calf and Hamstring stretches/ Standing poses on both feet.
Svadhisthana (2nd Chakra) is located in the Hips/Low Back. It’s associated with Creativity, Sensuality, Sexuality and Intuition. When open we can go with the flow of intuition, create, and easily accept pleasure. When blocked we feel uninspired and dry. Supportive methods include Hip/Groin openers, Regular downtime or playtime, Being nice to yourself.
Manipura (3rd Chakra) is located in the Diaphragm/Digestive System/Middle Back. It’s associated with Self-Esteem, Will and Personal Power. When open we are Confident and can manifest our intentions and desires. When blocked we are Fearful and Frustrated and can be Paranoid or Hostile. Supportive methods include Sun Salutation, Twists, Deep Breathing, Dancing and Sensible Risk-taking.
Anahata (4th Chakra) is located in the Chest/Upper Back and is also called the Heart Chakra. It’s associated with Love, Joy, and Trust. When open we feel deeply connected to others and inspired to give love. When blocked we are lonely, shy or unforgiving. Supportive methods include Chest, Upper Back and Shoulder openers and Focusing on Love/Gratitude.
Vishuddha (5th Chakra) is located in the Neck/Jaw area. It’s associated with Communication and Self-Expression. When open we easily speak our truth. When blocked we censor ourselves and hold secrets. Supportive methods include Neck stretches and Sound Making (humming, singing, chanting).
Ajna (6th Chakra) is located between the eyebrows at the Spiritual Third Eye. It’s associated with Insight, Imagination and Wisdom. When open we trust our inner wisdom and guidance. When blocked we have self-doubt and distrust. Supportive methods include Supported Forward Bends, Movement with closed eyes and Positive Visualizing.
Sahaswara (7th Chakra) is located at the Crown of the Head. It’s associated with Clarity and Pure Awareness. When open we feel Inner and Outer Beauty, Equanimity and Bliss. When blocked we feel blame, lack and judgement. Supportive methods include Meditation and Cardiovascular Exercise. Chakras may be mysterious but we can learn how to be more aware of each part of our body and optimize our chakras.
