Fifth Chakra - Throat Chakra

Aloha Everyone,

Here is a summary from our May 2013 classes where we reviewed 7 chakras.

FIFTH CHAKRA Throat Chakra (Vishuddhi) - influences auditory and speech systems.  The law of detachment governs the throat chakra.

Location: Throat.

Element: Sound, space

Color: Blue

Benefits:  seat of intellectual awareness and freedom from ego, self-expression of feelings, speak your persona truth, stimulates thyroid gland

Mantra - HAM

Mudra - Buddhi Mudra, mudra of mental clarity,  pinky and thumb tips lightly pressing
Asana - Kundalini Archer Pose, Simbasana (Lion Pose), Bhujangasana (Cobra pose)  Ustrasana (Camel Pose), Setu Bandha Sarvangasana (Bridge Pose), and Halasana (Plow Pose)

Food:  Liquids (water, fruit juices, herbal teas), fruits (apple, apricots, grapefruits, kiwi, lemons, limes, oranges, pears, peaches, plums, etc)

CAUTION - Kundalini Yoga is a powerful science and I would like to pass on the warnings from Kundalini Yoga teachers I have studied under to approach your practice with intelligence and respect.  If you are practicing at home, please remember not to do excessive chakra meditations. Too much flow of energy (shakti) before your body is ready to handle is extremely dangerous   Please don’t forget to use common sense and do your practice in moderation.  Always allow your body to rest after practice and don’t forget to drink plenty of water.
