Here is a summary from our May 2013 classes where we reviewed 7 chakras.
FOURTH CHAKRA - Heart Chakra (Anahata) influences circulatory and respiratory systems.
Location: at the center of the chest
Benefits: Unconditional love, forgiveness, compassion, joy, inner peace
Mantra - YAM
Mudra – Gyan Mudra, Mudra of knowledge, press tip of the index finger and thumb, right hand of the palm facing your body, hold in front of your Heart Chakra, rest your left hand on your left knee
Asana – Kundalini Yoga Camel Pose, Garudasana (Eagle Pose), Kundalini Yoga Chest fly, Kundalini Yoga ringing bell, double arm rotations, with Breath of fire and backbends
Food - Leafy vegetables (spinach, watercress, kale, collard greens, turnips, bok choy, etc.), liquids (green teas), spices (cilantro, basil, parsley, sage, thyme).
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.
