WHAT ARE THE CHAKRAS?
Pronounced “cha”-“kra” with a resounding “ch”
Our chakras are centers of energy throughout our body. Originating from Sanskrit, chakra literally means “wheel”. Each chakra is a vortex of spinning energy that interacts with various physiological and neurological systems in the body. They are essentially energy centers within the human body that help to regulate all its processes, from organ function to to the immune system and emotions. Each chakra has a color, endocrine gland and emotion(s) it is associated with. There are 7 main chakras that are commonly talked about and worked with in most healing modalities. While there are many more chakras throughout the body, knowing the information on the 7 main chakras is a great starting point in understanding our energetic bodies.
