A forum for all of those open to balancing their Chakras, enhancing their yoga practice and ensuring optimum holistic health


Regularity is key to reap the benefits of meditation – calmness of mind, body and spirit, increased health (lower blood pressure, cholesterol, and other stress-induced illnesses).

Try these tips to make meditation a successful part of your daily routine:

Make it a Habit – Try to schedule the same time each day for your meditation, for instance, just after awakening or just before bedtime.

Exercise – Doing yoga or other stretches first can relax your body, making it easier to sit in meditation.

Location – Choose a quiet spot with a cool breeze, just for meditation.

Sitting – Sit with your back straight, chest raised, head erect, eyes closed and hands resting palms upturned, in your lap.

Realistic time – It’s better to start meditating 5 to 15 minutes at a time and be very consistent about it, then increase your time as you can. One longer meditation each week is very helpful.

Never fear – there is a meditation style for every personality. For example, Type A’s may prefer a more active style of meditation, such as guided visualizations, which can offer the same benefits of relaxation. To try a guided visualization that you can listen to lying down, try this Chakra Meditation.
