A Journey Through the Chakras
Week Three: Manipura Chakra

The third chakra is the focal point of our power and is located in the solar plexus area. We build strength and develop our will within this chakra. Manipura chakra controls digestion and the metabolic systems, processing energy and giving us the spark we need to overcome obstacles and inertia. Asana focus for this chakra is on twists and the abdominal wall.

From the base of your spine to the top of you head, there are seven major chakras. The word chakra come from the sanskrit work for wheel or disk. Within the body lie seven vital energy centers or chakras. These chakras correspond to major nerve ganglia glands of the endocrine system and various bodily processes such as breathing, digestion and reproduction. The practice of yoga helps keep these centers of energy clear and flowing for optimal health. Come and join us on this journey down the central channel of the body. Over the next seven weeks will be be exploring the different chakras and how they effect our bodies. See you all soon!

Kathleen Kelly and Karen Simcik with be exploring the solar plexus chakra in their classes throughout this week. (May 30-June 3)
