Third Eye


Updated August 05, 2012

Definition: The third eye is located in the center of your forehead. It is the seat of the ajna chakra, which is associated with dreaming, imagination, and creativity. In yoga, it can be used as a focal point in meditation or for the drishti while performing postures or breathing exercises.
When doing lion's breath, bring your gaze to your third eye.
