Yoga fam, I’ve got two questions for you.
Ever been confused about how the heck to balance your chakras?
Or curious what it means to unblock or open them?
I know I have AND I’ve also thought it was all a bunch of woo too.
But since starting my 300 HR YTT and diving back into the chakras, I’ve come to appreciate it as a true yoga psychology system.
That’s why today’s new OFF THE MAT video is devoted to debunking what unblock, open, balance and heal your chakras means.
Now let’s pause for a brief moment and define what the chakras even are.
➡️ They’re a map of how mind & body and psychology & physiology intersect, or where psyche lives in the body
➡️ They represent different aspects of who we are and each one reigns over a specific phase of human development
➡️ Chakras are hubs or vortexes of energy where the masculine & feminine meet in the pranic body (this is where the chakra system lives, aka as the pranamayakosha)
➡️ Each one is responsible for receiving, digesting, and expressing our life force energy that we experience both internally and externally
Using your imagination, the third eye chakra, visualize 7 colorful spinning wheels that start at the base of your spine and end at the crown of the head.

Ready for the whole OFF THE MAT lesson?
If you’re still on the fence about tuning in, here’s a great explanation of why the chakras get misaligned in the first place.
Because the chakras are the managers of our internal & external energetic experiences and all the baggage that comes with that, naturally they shift into imbalanced states.
The three states they can be in are ⚖️ balanced, ➖ deficient, or ➕ excess.
Deficient and excess chakras develop as coping or defense mechanisms based largely on our childhood conditioning and experiences that were either repeated and/or traumatic, and our now adult ways of thinking, feeling and being.
