Have you over heard people talking about chakras, maybe in your yoga class or amongst your more alternative friends and never really known what on earth they were speaking about? A lot of people have heard the word chakra pop up in conversation but don't really understand what they are and how they affect us. They are often associated with alternative or hippie healing but there is a lot more to chakras than that and they actually play a large role in our physical and emotional well being. 

Here is some basic but fascinating information about our chakras that will give you a better idea:

  • A chakra is an energy centre or a vortex of energy, in the subtle body (not the physical body)
  • The word CHAKRA comes from the Sanskrit word 'wheel' or 'turning'
  • Traditional writing says there are about 88 000 chakras in body
  • There are 7 main chakras in your body
  • Chakras interact with your physical body through your endocrine glands and your nervous system
  • The chakras are present on the front and back of your body 
  • There is a particular colour associated with each chakra 
  • Depending on your gender, each chakra will either rotate clockwise or anticlockwise
  • Particular emotions are strongly associated with certain chakras 
  • Chakras can be out of balance and affect us on a physical and emotional level
  • Chakra meditations are a great way to connect with these energy systems
