Third Chakra - Naval Chakra

Aloha Everyone,

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

THIRD CHAKRA - Naval Chakra (Manipura)  it  is the power center and influences your digestive systems, helps with will power.

Location: Between navel and base of sternum (Solar Plexus)

Element: Fire

Color: Yellow like the Sun

Benefits:  Balancing this chakra, one will have self-respect, self esteem, self confidence, will power, core energy, physical and emotional balance.

Mantra - RAM

Mudra - Surya Mudra, mudra of the sun, the ring finger is bent and press it with the thumb

Asana - Surya Namaskar (Sun Salutation), Kundalini Yoga Stretch Pose, Kundalini Yoga core abdominal power set, Kundalini Sufi Grind, Camel Pose Tadasana(Mountain Pose) into Urdhva Dhanurasana (Upward Bow Pose);

Food: Grains (rice, bread, pasta, cereal, flax seed, etc), dairy (yogurt, cheese, milk), spices (ginger, mints cumin, turmeric, chamomile, 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.

Sat Nam -- Cathi
