Third Eye Chakra Yoga Poses Full Sequence
- The first of these third eye chakra yoga poses is Mountain Pose. Place your feet together on your mat and rest your hands along the side of your body. Ground yourself against the floor, straighten your pain, and reach towards the sky with the crown of your head. Feel free to close your eyes and take deep breaths in and out.
- Now, we will do a Forward Fold. Interlock your fingers behind your back, expanding your chest and shoulder blades. With your feet sturdy on the ground, bend at the hips and lean forward as far as you can.
- The next third eye chakra yoga pose is the Half Fold, which is similar to a forward fold. Unclasp your fingers from behind your back and reach them in front of you towards the ground. Try to rest your palms flat against the floor, although grazing the mat with your fingertips is okay too. Instead of bending completely at the hips, make your back straight, so it’s parallel to the ground.
- Place your palms on the ground directly underneath your shoulders and stretch each foot back behind you out until you are in Plank Pose. Your body should be as straight as possible, like one single line. Try not to let your hips dip too low you’re your tailbone to lift too high into the air.
- In this third eye yoga routine, we will also be holding Cobra Pose. Lay flat on your belly with the tops of your feet flush against the mat. Spread your fingers wide and lift your chest off the ground, supporting yourself with your palms.
- Downward Facing Dog is one of the most relaxing third eye yoga poses. With your feet hip-distance apart and your palms on the ground, hoist your hips into the air, reaching your tailbone towards the sky. Try to straighten your legs as much as possible.
- From here, step your right foot between your palms, stacking your knee above your foot to form a 45-degree angle. With your left foot on the ground, rise and lifts your hands above your head. This is Warrior I.
- For Pyramid Pose, our next third eye yoga pose, straighten your front leg and bend at the hips, clasping your hands in a prayer positing behind your back. Your back should be as straight as possible and parallel to the ground.
- Bring both your hands straight out in front of you. Shift your weight to your front foot and start to lift your back leg behind you until it’s in a straight line parallel to the ground. This should create a T-shape with your body. This balancing pose is referred to as Warrior III.
- Now return to the Forward Fold position to rest the body.
11. Unfold and stand up straight for Mountain Pose.
12. The next balancing third eye yoga pose is called Tree Pose. From Mountain Pose, ground one foot on the ground and place the sole of the other against your calf or thigh. Do no place your foot directly on your knee. Stretch your hands above your head as you reach up.
- Take a wide stance with your fit and squat down, reaching your tailbone towards the floor. In this Yogi Squat pose, bring your palms together in a prayer position.
- This next third eye chakra yoga pose is for resting – Child’s Pose. Place your knees on the ground and sit back until your forehead is resting on the mat. Stretch your arms in front of you, reaching through the fingertips.
- For Staff Pose, kick your feet out in front of you and straightened your back until you are in an L-shape. Reach the crown of your head towards the sky and engage your arms and legs against the ground.
- Staying seated, tuck one foot against your thigh with your knee facing out. This is Forehead to Knee Pose. Bend at the hips and reach your arms towards the straightened leg. Allow your head and neck to fall forward and relax.
- Cow Face Pose provides a great stretch for all your limbs. Cross your knees and stack one leg on top of the other. Reach one hand behind your head and the other hand behind your back. Try to clasp your fingers together for a bind, expanding your chest. Switch legs and arms.
- Remain seated and bring the soles of your feet together for Bound Angle Pose. Wrap your hands around your ankles and bend at the hips, reaching your head as far towards your feet as you can.
- Our final third eye chakra yoga pose is a seated meditation. Get yourself into a comfortable seated position, ideally with your legs crossed and your hands resting by your side (or in prayer position). Close your eyes and return to focusing on your breath – deeply inhaling and exhaling. Feel free to remain in this pose for as long as it’s comfortable.
