“What I know for sure is that speaking your truth is the most powerful tool we all have.” —Oprah
Speaking up in any situation, whether you’re delivering a Ted Talk, standing up for yourself, or prepping for that long overdue discussion with your partner, can be a daunting task. Palms sweaty just thinking about it? Try this throat chakra-balancing practice from Alan Finger and Sarah Platt-Finger, co-founders of ISHTA Yoga. The fifth chakra, visuddha, is associated with the element ether (space) and flowing communication channels within, with others, and with the universe—qualities that will allow you to express yourself with ease. After all, anyone can talk, but the key to making your voice heard is speaking from the soul.
