The crown chakra allows us to open up to enlightenment, the interconnectivity of everything in the universe. Activities associated with this chakra are more spiritual in nature, allowing for the quiet that allows us to open up to and feel connected. Such activities can include prayer, meditation, singing hymns or spiritual songs, or chanting.

Asanas

Yoga poses that promote stillness and silence are the key poses relating to the crown chakra, but being still is often difficult. We spend much of our lives multi-tasking and scurrying to and fro. If you find stillness and meditation difficult, you can pick your favorite poses from the root, sacral, solar plexus, heart, throat, and third eye chakras. Just make sure to give yourself ample time to focus on stillness with the following poses:

Namaste,
