Cobra Pose (Bhujangasana) Manipura Chakra sculpture part 3 of a 7 chakra series.
The chakras are spiraling wheel spiritual energy centers contained in 7 regions of our subtle body. Each chakra has an associated color. Blockages of these different areas are thought to be contributing factors to illness and disease. The practice of yoga and meditation insure that we keep an open flowing channel of prana (life force) from our root to our crown.
Manipura translates as “lustrous gem” and represents the yellow 3rd chakra energy center located in the pubic area that governs creativity, emotion, the sense of taste, and well being. Cobra pose stimulates the abdominal region and helps open this 3rd chakra.
