In response to requests I received after publication of my earlier article on how to unblock your chakras through a writing exercise, I've compiled seven yoga poses which can also bring balance to seven of your chakra centers.
When a chakra, or wheel of energy, is stuck it may be helpful to release the prana (energy) through movement. Yoga postures are a great way to release stale or stuck energy from the body because they invite fresh, vital energy back in through poses and the breath.
I've selected my favorite asanas, which correspond to each of the seven main chakras.
Yoga poses that can help to balance your chakras aren't limited to the ones above. In fact, some of the chakras have many postures to help activate or balance the energy center. Please feel free to share your favorites!
