FOURTH CHAKRA - ANAHATA (HEART)

Color: Green

Sound: Yam

Element: Air (Vayu)

The anahata chakra is located at the centre of the cest and is the balancing point between the lower three chakras and the upper three chakras. 

A balanced fourth chakra helps us to express unconditional love, feel compassion and harmony. However, if the chakra is over stimulated or too week you may experience feelings like jealousy and possessiveness, be overconfident or have low self-esteem and you can also suffer from high blood pressure and heart diseases.  

Yoga poses to balance the anahata chakra: Back bends poses helps to enliven the heart chakra as we expand the chest in these positions and opens the front side of the body. Some good poses to practice are Ustrasana (Camel Pose), Bhujangasana (Cobra Pose) and Matsyasana (Fish Pose). 

Open your heart and allow yourself to be loved and love others!
