What is a Chakra?
In yoga, meditation and Ayurveda, this term is used to refer to energy centers in the body. These energy centers encompass nerve centers and vital organs as well correspond to our psychological, emotional and spiritual states of being.
Where are these Chakras?
There are seven commonly recognized chakras located along the spine. They are known as the root, sacral, solar plexus, heart, throat, third eye and crown chakra.
