Chakra Meditation

Combining visualization with pranayama

This is a dynamic chakra meditation that is very effective in energizing awareness to a more expanded state.

Tools: You will need a metronome set at 60 bpm – smartphones have an app if needed.

Technique: Use an even ratio of inhalation – pause – exhalation – pause when doing this technique. For most people, a four-count ratio is the most comfortable – inhale for a count of four; hold for a count of four; exhale for a count of four; hold for a count of four, inhale, etc..

Before You Begin: All our techniques use complete yogic breaths. To add even more energy to this technique, recite the chakra sound in the specific pitch indicated. It will help if you can hear all the notes ahead of time – listen to the note, then repeat each chakra sound in the pitch indicated with your voice to get that harmonic into your body memory.
