Why pay attention to Chakras?

In yoga, there is a heavy emphasis of the energy body, the flow of energy throughout your body. There are seven key points of energy known as Chakras. In any of a case when a chakra is blocked, it elicits emotional, mental and even physical imbalances that is reflected as symptoms like lethargy, poor digestion and anxiety. To balance out the chakra, a dedicated asana practice and/or music at the right frequency can help shift your internal energy to where you want it to go.  

How do we know which chakra is imbalanced? We must first tune in to how we are feeling and then, figure out which chakra to stimulate and counteract the imbalance. When feeling anxious, work on the Muladhara chakra with poses like Balasana, Vrksasana, Uttanasana. If you’re feeling low on energy you can target the Manipura chakra with poses like Navasana or if you seek more courage to speak the truth you can stimulate your Vishudha chakra with Setu Bandha Sarvangasana, Sarvangsana, Urdhva Dhanurasana.

After working on the poses whilst listening to music with the corresponding frequency, I feel the calmness and focus. Hope I will be able to feel or “see” more effects with the continued practice!
