Yoga Poses For Heart Chakra Opening


    The heart chakra, also known as Anahata. Is the fourth chakra in the human body. It is located at the center of the chest and is associated with the color green. This chakra is responsible for our capability to love feel compassion and form connections with others. When it becomes blocked or unbalanced it can lead to physical, emotional, and spiritual problems.

    In this article. We will explore yoga poses that can assist in opening and balancing your heart chakra. Camel Pose (Ustrasana)
    Camel Pose is a posture that opens up the heart area by stretching the front of the body which includes the chest, abdomen, and hip flexors. To perform this pose begin by kneeling on the floor with your knees positioned hip width apart.

    Place your hands on your lower back and gradually lean backward while lifting your chest and heart towards the ceiling. If you feel comfortable doing so. You may reach back and rest your hands on your heels to deepen the stretch in your chest and throat. Bridge Pose (Setu Bandha Sarvangasana)
    Another pose that opens up the heart area is Bridge Pose which helps stretch both the chest and shoulders.

    To perform this pose lie down on your back with your knees bent and feet positioned hip width apart. Place your palms on the floor beside your hips and lift your pelvis towards the sky while pressing down firmly through your feet and arms into the ground. Experience a gentle stretch in your chest and shoulders as you hold this posture for several breaths.
    Cobra Pose (Bhujangasana)
    Cobra Pose is a gentle backbend that stimulates both opening of the chest as well as activation of the heart chakra.

    To perform this pose lie flat on your stomach with hands placed underneath shoulders. As you press down through palms into mat or floor lift up through upper body being sure to keep elbows near sides. Hold this pose for several breaths feeling the stretch throughout your chest and abdomen. Warrior II (Virabhadrasana II)
    Warrior II is a standing posture that strengthens the legs while also opening up the chest and shoulders.

    Begin practicing this pose by first assuming a stance where your feet are positioned hip-width apart from one another. Continuing from there,on arm extension follow up simultaneously stepping one foot backwards whilst rotating it outward at an exact right angle (90 degrees). This step shall be taken after bending one knee -the side opposite that of the rotating foot- stirring an outward movement of both palms-from here being specifically extended sideways thereby encouraging relaxation within one’s shoulder region.Allotting ample time taking slow breaths constitutes the subsequent instruction before you transition to the other side.
    Adding heart-opening yoga poses into your regular daily routine can effectively facilitate opening and balancing your heart chakra. Maintaining focus on your breath and being cautious about moving through each pose mindfully and without hastiness are important to remember in parallel with an aim for consistency in practicing each pose. Consequently, a heightened sense of love, compassion and overall connection-both towards oneself and others-can be progressively achieved.
