Anahata is located in the spinal area, in the region of the heart and the cardiac plexus. It is behind the sternum and level with the heart centre. Its colour is sky blue, with 12 petals.

Associated with the air element and with deep love and compassion, Anahata governs the sense of touch and the skin.
