Ask a Yogi-“What is the significance of the chin in Kundalini Yoga?

“What is the significance of the chin in Kundalini Yoga? Why are we sometimes instructed to touch our chin to the ground, or to focus on our
chin during meditation? Thank you for the opportunity to ask this question.”

Sat Nam, ji. Thank you for this question! The chin of a human is one of the moon centers of the body. When we press and massage this area, we can help ease pressure and tension that collects due to emotional ups and downs of a woman’s lunar cycle. How to do this? Close the eyes and roll them downwards to the center of the chin. This location corresponds to the Moon Center. This will create a cooling and calming effect. When the chin is pressed on the ground during a yoga exercise this will assist in emotional balance.
Men have one lunar center and it is located on the chin. Since men are primarily solar beings, hair grows to cover that center to neutralize the lunar effect. Women have eleven moon points and that will change her emotional state every 2 ½ days! That is why it is extremely important to understand the sequence (it is different for every woman) and stay balanced! Click here for a kriya that can be practiced by women to
balance the moon centers.  ~Sant Kaur Khalsa
