Ajna Chakra (Third Eye)
Ahh…the powerful Ajna chakra is our focus this week. This is located in the space between the eyes, and this energy center controls our sight, smell, intuition, perception and some hearing. We often use the phrase “I see” to also mean “I understand”, and with a well-balanced Ajna chakra, we are able to see even beyond what the eyes take in. A strong intuition, imagination and clear perception of reality is focused here.
Physically, any imbalance with this energy center, may manifest as poor eye-sight, sinus issues, problems with the inner ear, mental disorders, and nervous system ailments. Eye asanas, and mindfulness practices can help to balance energy here in the body.
In classes this week, we will be practicing eye asanas, and a mandala-style physical practice to challenge our perception. So, come join the fun!
