The Elements and the Chakras -Part 4- Air

Please see the yoga video on my YouTube Channel-'The Elements and the Chakras -Part 4- Air'- 

With each breath in we take the air element from outside our bodies into our heart space to nourish us, each breath out it cleanses us. With breathing practices we open up the heart space to receive more of the air element and as we receive more of the air element our bodies are purified, our minds become calm and clear and we open up to love and compassion which are the essence of the heart chakra.  This then is the connection between the air element and the heart chakra.

In our video this we start by practicing square breath, counting the breath as it moves in and out of the body.  This creates an awareness of the air element moving in and out of the body. 
We then go on to do poses that open up the front, back and sides of the heart space.  We finish with a meditation in which we reflect on the air element.

Namaste
