Chakras are points of concentration of energy in the human body, according to Hindu and yogic spiritual traditions. They are considered energy vortices that run along the spine, from the base of the spine to the top of the head.
Each chakra is associated with certain aspects of the human being, including physical, emotional, mental and spiritual aspects. Their balance and openness are believed to be essential to our overall health and well-being. When these chakras are blocked or imbalanced, it is said that problems can arise in various aspects of our lives.
Each chakra is associated with certain colors, elements, symbols and even specific ways of working to balance or unblock them. Yoga practices, meditation, conscious breathing, crystal therapy and other spiritual techniques are often used to work with the chakras to restore balance and harmony in the body and mind.
