Manas Mandala Pranayama for the Third Eye Chakra
*** this breath technique comes from the Gitananda yoga tradition
This technique involves a simple in and out of the breath done to a count:
- inhale for a count of 6
- exhale for a count of 6
As you focus on the space between the eyebrows and the colour indigo, continue this pattern for at least 9 rounds. The count can be decreased to 5 or 4, or increased to 7, 8, or 9. Focus on how the inhale and the exhale are balanced with the same count - both are needed equally and both have equal value. For an audio recording that includes a visualization for the third eye chakra that can be used with this breath, you can visit my site by clicking here.
Happy breathing and allow yourself to find balance and to notice the pictures you are creating within.
See you on our mats!
