Overview of Chakras

Every living being on Earth, even Earth itself is composed of energy. We have 7 main energy gateways called Chakras. They are considered to be the centers of energy and are located in select spots on the mid-line of our torso. Combined, they make up our chakra system.

Each chakra is associated with different elements, colors, foods, mudras, and asanas (poses). Ideally, each one of our chakras would be open and work together harmoniously giving us balance. By working together, they would give a balance of feelings and thinking. Unfortunately, some of our chakras are under-active or overactive, and need to be balanced or healed.

We could also experience physical signs such as eating disorders, constipation, or knee pain. Each physical and mental signs can be closely related to a certain chakra imbalance.

What Influences an Unbalanced Chakra
