The color associated with the heart chakra is green and the element is air.

This is a lovely practice but the description is misleading. It is more of an Intermediate 1 than 3 (maybe even Beginner?) and props are needed that are not listed. You will need a block and a bolster for this one! Also, there are very few backbends (just one in the end, really). This heart chakra balancing is done more with breath and compassion rather than backbends as the level/description suggests. I'd like to see the description modified so people can be better prepared with reasonable expectations of this practice. That said, I still highly recommend this one! Fiji is always a gem to work with :)

What a beautiful practice! Exactly what my body and soul needed today, the shoulder and hip openers are wonderful, and so is the heart-opening sentiment. Loving this series, thank you Fiji!

I feel healing starting, realizing on the mat that I have closed the gate and trying now to open it with compassion. Thank you so much, Fiji.

This series is wonderful! It reminds me it is OK if I can't do every pose, that intention is key, and I love the chakra commentary. I am learning and growing. Please check the description on the Yoga Challenges page for Heart Chakra. It lists the colour as blue.

I have been feeling very tight in my shoulders and upper back for a long while now and this class gave me a understanding of some of the other emotional reasons as to why this tightness had occurred. Thank Fiji for your amazing classes and wise, helpful words always. A excellent class and I have a lot of mental homework now. Big love

The complimentary balance of strong standing postures, hip openers and then the smooth transition into heart openers was very effective and soothing. Healing doesn't come as just a nice smiley face, but requires the commitment to go through the rough bits to the final blossoming of something once neglected or abused. I am grateful as I am finally allowing myself to feel and release the abused child that I was and embrace love. Thank you so much for the practice. Namaste from Ireland.
