Do you know what a chakra is? Do you know the seven main chakras? Do you know the locations, seed sounds, colors, etc.?
A chakra is a spinning vortex of activity created by the presence of consciousness within the physical body. The seed words above represent the seven chakras or energy centers in the body that take energy from the outside, process that energy internally, and express it back out again. The seventh chakra is represented above as the thousand-petal lotus flower (the crown). It has no seed sound, as silence is the most important way to open this chakra.
The seven major chakra locations correspond to the seven central nerve ganglia branching out from the spinal column. Each of these nerve bundles influences the energy body as well as the physical body, matching the structure of the nervous system.
The word "chakra" comes from Sanskrit meaning wheel or disk, as the chakras are commonly referred to as spinning wheels of energy; wheels of light.
I have begun offering a morning and an evening chakra practice (listed in my Class Descriptions page). The morning practice contains seven variations on the flowing yoga sequence which is known as Sun Salutations or Surya Namaskar. It is designed to stimulate each of your seven chakras, beginning from the root chakra up to the crown chakra. The evening practice is to bring your energy down from the crown chakra to the root chakra. It is designed for relaxation and preparation for a good night's sleep. You'll learn each chakra's locations, colors, seed words, words of affirmation, and specific poses for each of the chakras.
