Singing / Chanting
Creativity (self expression)
The following movements are intended to gently awaken your awareness of your throat chakra. These movements can be performed in seated or standing tadasana (mountain pose).
Starting with a gentle double chin, lift your nose slightly (inhale), now draw your nose down, tucking the jaw back over the shoulders (exhale). Continue until you are nodding yes slowly. Progress to nodding no, looking right and left while keeping the gentle double chin. You can also explore with the shoulders here. Let the shoulders rise toward your ears (inhale) and then draw your collar bones flat lowering shoulders (exhale). Shoulders can continue to lift and lower with the breath or small shoulder circles may naturally occur. Can you keep the double chin throughout the shoulder movement?
*Note: Whenever you practice a yoga posture (asana), rest when you need to and do not force. It should feel invited and natural to be in any pose.
