The 5th main chakra (energy centre) is known as Vishuddha, the throat chakra. It is related to our ability to communicate with others, self expression and authenticity. When it is out of balance we may have difficulty communicating, be scared to speak our true feelings or feel indecisive. Or we may be the other extreme. Talk a lot and not listen at all to others, over react, gossip and use a lot of negative language. Having a balanced throat chakra helps us express our feelings and emotions with compassion and love. It allows us listen well to others and can help us have stable relationships.
Physical Yoga postures that are great for the throat chakra include reverse warrior, fish pose, bridge pose and plough*. Lions breath (Simhasana) where you stick you tongue out and breath out, is one of the funniest and one of the best things to do to relieve stress in the throat and balance Vishuddha.
