Restorative Yoga 5 - Vishuddhi Chakra (38 min)
In this restorative practice, 38 minutes in length, we focus on Vishuddhi Chakra, the throat chakra. This is our energy centre associated with verbal communication and the element of space. The postures we practice here create ease in the neck and throat. When this chakra is balanced, we feel centered and contented and we communicate freely and easily.
For this restorative practice, as well as your yoga mat, you will need yoga blocks, cushions, blankets, a chair or low table, a bolster if you have one and an eye pillow if you have one. You will also need a little bit of wall space for legs up the wall. Create a quiet space for yourself where you won’t be disturbed. Dim the lights or just use candles. Close the door. Give yourself this half an hour of uninterrupted time. Everyone will benefit in the end!
If you are not sure which restorative practice to choose, do them in the order they are numbered. So you would begin with Muladhara Chakra and move up through the chakras in sequence.
This practice is suitable for everyone, even those recovering from injury or feeling under the weather. It is designed to bring you to a state of deep relaxation, through a simple sequence of supported postures. We linger in the postures, breathing and encouraging a feeling of letting go. This practice is not suitable for pregnancy and I would recommend instead you try videos specifically for pregnancy.
