Hatha Yoga Posture for Root Chakra Opening

Kundalini yoga crow pose, is the sixth entry in our Free Online Illustrated Kundalini Yoga Poses and Exercises E-Book and this pose helps balance two very important chakras of the kundalini seven chakra system.  Crow pose works primarily on clearing the root chakra (muladhara chakra), but at the same time it also helps in opening the heart chakra (anahata chakra).

Crow pose is also common to various schools of yoga, including Hatha Yoga and Kundailini Yoga.

Below you will find two illustrations of crow yoga pose.  The first is a modified version of crow pose, while the second is the full version.  Please do feed free to use the modified version, never risk injury by trying a posture you don’t feel ready to do.

Unlike other kundalini yoga exercises, this posture is done with the eyes open.  Detailed instructions follow below the illustrations.

    Anmol,
    Is this pose specific to Kundalini Yoga? The crow pose that I am familiar with (Bakasana) is an arm balance.

    Dear Anmol,

    I have anxiety but still I want to practice crow pose to cleanse my root chakra. I hope it does not increase anxiety further.

    Thank You.

    Dear Maheta,
    1. Can you please elaborate on the finger positions more? (eg- does the palms touch each other or not? coz i know there’s a similar mudra where only the tips of the index fingers are touching and palms don’t touch – and this mudra is the ‘large intestine’ mudra.)

    2. When doing the full proper pose with breath of fire, does the spine is totally erect, or slighly bent? (coz in your picture illustrations, when on heels the back is bent, and when on toes the back is straight)

    3, Is the pirinium (anus) is relaxed or pulled in?

    4. can’t we keep the mind on the root chakra instead of focusing above the fingers (with eyes closed preferably)?

    Dear Rosa,

    Thanks for stopping by and providing your feedback.

    Sorry you are not enjoying the sound of my voice though, unfortunately it’s the only one I have :-).

    Meaning no disrespect, if you are quick tempered or often irritable, you might find the following technique useful (there is no sound for this one, only pictures :-).

    Best,

    Thank you for the response Trupti :)

    Do you know if there is a difference to cleansing, balancing and activating certain chakras? Can the chakras only be “opened” and “closed” or do they have different stages of purity in addition to that?

    Thank you very much :)
