Yoga poses to open the Heart Cakra

The Heart Cakra is the home of our compassion, where we give and receive love within the world.

Anahatasana- the Melting Heart opens the back heart cakra that controls the lungs

Supta Baddhakonasana - lying back on a bolster opens the front of the heart, clears and opens the lungs, and with the hips open the energy is free to flow between the heart and the lower cakras - connecting our basic, instinctual energies with a conscious heart

Side stretches - whether seated or standing, side stretches open Vyana vayu- the energy pathway from the heart to the extremities

If you are having trouble expressing the feelings of your heart try chanting or singing - sound pulls the heart energy up and opens expression through the Throat Cakra
