The Manipura Chakra is associated with the Fire element and the color YELLOW.
Mantra: “I do or “Ram”
The Manipura is located between your naval and your solar plexus.
It governs your feelings of will, inner power, strength, ego, stamina and self-esteem.
When this chakra is balanced, you feel powerful, strong, confident, capable active and determined.
When it is blocked, you may experience feelings of unworthiness, lack of energy and determination, guilt and fatigue.
When it is overstimulated, you will experience control issues, stubbornness, be overly critical and tend toward perfectionism.
To balance this chakra, try Navasana (boat pose), dhanurasana (upward facing bow) or and standing twists like crescent lunge with prayer twist or revolved Trikonasana (trianglepose).
Be powerful, my dear yogis!
