The Anahata Chakra is associated with the Air element and the color GREEN.
Mantra: “I love” or “Yum”
The Anahata is located at the center of your chest.
It governs your feelings of unconditional love, compassion and joy. It is the bridge between the lower chakras and the upper chakras, joining the physical with the metaphysical.
When your heart chakra is open and balanced, you are flowing with love and compassion, you are quick to forgive, and you easily accept others and yourself.
When it is blocked, you may experience feelings of grief, anger, jealousy, fear of betrayal, and hatred toward yourself and others.
When it is overstimulated, you may say yes to everyone and anything, love indiscriminately, losing your sense of identity and become co-dependent.
To balance this chakra, try camel, standing bow and bridge pose.
Be loving, my dear yogis!
