It’s Valentine’s Day, and what better way to treat yourself than with some heart opening yoga!

In yoga philosophy, the body has many energy centers called chakras. One of the important ones is the heart chakra, or anahata chakra. The opening of the chest symbolizes opening the heart, growing in compassion and connection to others and thus decreasing isolation and depression.

The benefits of yoga chest openers are both physical and psychological. Chest openers, also called heart openers or back bends, counteract the all-too-familiar postures of hunching over a computer or steering wheel. By lifting your heart, moving your shoulders back and lengthening the front and back of your body, you decrease back pain and shoulder tightness, and improve your spirits.
