In this lesson we have fully described the implications of the ajna chakra, together with relevant techniques. Ajna is the most difficult of the chakras to locate; we therefore suggest that you practise trataka and trikuti sandhanam as a preparation. Also try to spend a few minutes every day directing your attention to the centre of the head; this will help to develop further sensitivity to the position of ajna. You should continue to practise chakra shuddhi in order to develop more sensitivity to the other chakras and ksbetrams. This will prepare you for kriya yoga techniques.
Continue to practise nadi shodhana combined with maha bandha1. Don't strain.
Halasana should be integrated into your asana program. If you have time try to do some or all of the variations.
If you have mastered ajapa stage 4, then proceed to stage 5.
