The 31-point and 61-point relaxations are wonderful relaxations because you can focus specifically on major energy points in the body. Some of these points are the chakras like Ajna, Vishuddha, Anahata, Manipura and Svadhisthana chakras. The other energy points are called marmas. Sometimes because of stress and negativity, the chakras and the marma points can become constricted. The 31-point and 61-point exercises free the circuitry so that prana/chi can flow more freely. Start with the 31 point meditation and when you can stay alert throughout it is time to move on to the 61 point relaxation.
