We all know or at least have heard of the chakras.
If you're a yoga instructor, reiki practitioner, or any other kind of healer, you understand that these enigmatic colorful wheels are a vital part of our everyday life.
However if you're unfamiliar with the chakras, that's okay!
My name is Dan, an RYT-200 Yoga Instructor, Thai Massage Practitioner, Wim Hof Method Instructor in training, and chakra enthusiast.
Today I'd like to explain what the chakras are as well as a brief breakdown of each chakra's function and purpose.
The word chakra is a Sanskrit word that translates to "wheels" in English. Many practices believe in the 8 chakra system, where other believe in 7, and even more believe in many more.
To keep it simple, I'll go over the 7 chakra principle to get you familiar with the concept.
A chakra is thought to be an energy center in our body shaped like a wheel. Just like a physical wheel, it can not be moved on it's own. What moves the wheels that are our chakras is prana, or "life force". We get prana from food, drink, breathing, the earth, other people, the list goes on.
Muladhara (Root) Chakra
This chakra is represented by the color red and is located at the base of the spine at the pelvic floor.
It is responsible for being grounded, centered, stable, & secure.
I am very excited to announce that this is the first blog post in a weekly series describing the chakras!
