Just like cleansing other parts in the body, cleansing the seven chakras are extremely important to our health. Not only does this benefit our physical health, but also our mental and emotional health as well. It is important to cleanse all seven chakras, but in this article i will show you how to cleanse the Root and Heart Chakra using a yoga exercise.
The Yoga Crow Pose
1. Begin by squatting on the floor, with your legs about shoulder width apart. Make sure your toes are completely flat on the ground with your toes pointing outwards.
2. Reach forward with your arms with your index fingers pointing straight ahead, and the rest of your fingers interlaced together.
3. Look straight ahead and stare out into infinity.
4. Make sure your back is as straight as possible at this point. And begin to take deep breaths. Inhaling through the nostrils and exhaling through the mouth.
You can hold this posture for as little as 15 seconds or as long as three minutes.
By cleansing the Root Chakra, we will be improving our health, build a strong sense of security, connectivity to our surroundings, and remove fears. By cleansing the Heart Chakra, we are allowing love and compassion to flow through us. This exercise also improves flexibility in the groin and hips, is good for the health in the knee and ankle joints, and is very great for toning and healing the elimination system in the body.
If this pose feels too difficult or uncomfortable for you, don’t be discouraged it takes practice to get use to this!
