chakra in yoga
Solar plexus yoga poses can help to activate, energize, and harmonize this chakra, which can benefit both physical and mental health. Here are a few of the best poses for connecting with your solar plexus energy:
Cobra Pose (Bhujangasana), Upward Facing Dog (Urdhva Mukha Svanasana), Half Moon Pose (Ardha Chandrasana), and Boat Pose are all variations on the Cobra Pose (Navasana).
The cobra pose is an essential part of solar plexus yoga practice. It aids in the strengthening and stretching of the spine, the improvement of physical strength and flexibility, the increase of breath awareness, and the energizing of the body.
The pose is simple: lie flat on your stomach with your legs extended behind you. Place your palms flat on the floor beside your chest, then slowly raise your head, neck, and shoulders while pressing your navel into the floor.
Hold this position before lowering yourself back onto the mat for a few breaths.
Upward-facing down pose
Begin by lying face down on a mat, legs straight behind you, and hands flat next to your waist. Lift your head, neck, and shoulders towards the sky on an inhale while pushing through your hands until only their tops touch the ground.
Exhale slowly and press your palms into the floor, engaging your core muscles.
Half moon pose
Ardha Chandrasana, or half-moon pose, is an important part of a yogi’s practice. It aids in the opening and strengthening of the muscles in the abdomen, back, hips, and legs. It can be used to energize the body as well as stretch out tight spots.
Begin in Mountain Pose, feet together and arms alongside your torso. Bend your supporting leg’s knee while keeping both hip bones pointed forward.
For stability, raise both hands to the sky while pressing down on your standing foot. Take a deep breath and exhale as you take one step back away from your standing foot, your toes facing forward.
Begin by sitting on the ground and extending your legs in front of you. Lean back slightly and clasp your hands at chest level.
Lift both feet off the floor and align them parallel with your body, forming a V shape. To ensure proper alignment, keep your back straight throughout the exercise.
Raise both arms slowly until they parallel, forming a line from fingertips to toes.
