The chakras are energy centers found along the front of the spine from the tailbone to the crown. They are a key part of the energy map of the human body, developed around 3,000 years ago. The word chakra derives from the Sanskrit for “wheel” or “turning”. As such, chakras are wheel-like disks or vortices which collect, hold, and disseminate energy throughout the body and its systems. Each of the chakras are associated with different energy frequencies, anatomical functions, emotions, and more. Trauma divides us from our bodies, and affects the functioning of all the chakras. When a chakra is imbalanced or there has been trauma, it can result in dysfunction or dis-ease in the physical, emotional, and/or mental layers of our being. The chakra system helps us focus on one kind of healing at a time, and notice what is going on in each. Cultivating awareness of each chakra and using specific types of pranayama, sound vibration, and asana helps to open each chakra help to bring health and healing to the chakra system.
