Are there specific yoga poses for chakra balancing?

Yes, yoga can be a powerful tool for balancing and aligning the chakras. Each chakra is associated with specific regions of the body, and practicing certain yoga poses can help stimulate and harmonize the energy flow in those areas. For example, poses like Mountain Pose (Tadasana) or Warrior Pose (Virabhadrasana) can be beneficial for grounding and balancing the root chakra located at the base of the spine.

Heart-opening poses, such as Camel Pose (Ustrasana) or Cobra Pose (Bhujangasana), can help activate the heart chakra, fostering love and compassion. Likewise, incorporating twists like Seated Twist (Ardha Matsyendrasana) can aid in clearing energy blockages in the solar plexus chakra.
