The seven chakras are energy centers in your body that allow energy to flow at the right moment and in the right place. We explain everything about yoga chakras in this blog.
If you practice yoga, you have probably heard of the yoga chakras. Yet this is a subject that very few people really know about. It is also an exciting and vague subject that can generate quite a bit of resistance. For example, what do you think or do when your yoga teacher tells you to open your chakras? Chances are that you have no idea what they mean or how to do this. And that is not bad at all, but it is of course nice if you know something more about this.
That is why we would like to tell you more about the yoga chakras, what they are, how they work and what it means to open your chakras. And rest assured, it is not all that exciting and vague ;-)
First, let's see what is meant by a chakra. It is a word from Sanskrit and literally means "wheel". If we are talking about a chakra, we are talking about energy flowing through your body. In combination with the word wheel, you can therefore see a chakra as a wheel to let your energy flow.
Our body has many energy sources, energy centers, energy points or therefore chakras. It is just what you want to call this, but within yoga such an energy center is called chakra. Also within yoga it is not about all the energy centers in your body, but there are seven main energy centers: The seven chakras.
These seven chakras, ie energy centers, are located in your body along your spine. From the beginning of your spine to the crown. The idea behind these chakras is that they are all responsible for a specific aspect in our body. If your chakras are in balance, then you are probably in good health. Through yoga you stimulate the balance of your chakras.
As already mentioned, seven chakras are involved in yoga and to balance these seven. Each chakra also has its own color:
By opening your chakras you restore the balance in your body, you ensure that your energy can flow freely again. Negative thoughts and chemically processed products such as food, cosmetics and cleaning products can ensure that your chakras are out of balance. Yoga, meditation and other exercises focused on your chakra help you to let your energy flow freely.
