To open and balance the crown chakra, practise inverted, seated and restorative yoga poses.
Salamba Sirsasana (Supported Headstand) - This nourishes the head with oxygen and blood to help open, balance and soothe the crown chakra.
Halasana (Plow) - As this inverted position stretches the spine and shoulders, it helps soothe and balance the seventh chakra.
Salamba Sarvangasana (Supported Shoulderstand) - Good for toning the lower part of the body, this inversion helps alleviate depression while balancing and calming the crown chakra.
Padmasana (Lotus) - The seated pose stimulates the spine and core while balancing and calming the seventh chakra.
Paschimottanasana (Seated Forward Bend) - By stretching the spine and shoulders, this seated posture helps open, balance and heal the Sahasrara chakra while also stimulating the liver, reproductive organs, and kidneys.
Supta Baddha Konasana (Reclining Bound Angle) - This restorative pose stretches the hips and stimulates the kidneys and reproductive organs as it opens and balances the crown chakra.
