What are Chakras & Why they are important?
There are seven chakras in our body also known as Centers of Energy. Our Vital Energy or what we called Prana Shakti flows through them.
The regular and free flow of our energy through these 7 chakras is important. Blockages in these chakras sometimes lead to illness and an unhealthy lifestyle. Here, It becomes important to know the work of these individual chakras and the ways to balance them.
When a chakra i.e. wheel of energy is stuck, movement can help release the prana (energy). Yoga postures are a great way to release stale or stuck energy from the body because they invite fresh, vital energy back in through poses and the breath.
The practice of yoga ultimately leads us to a state of union, which is possible when we create a state in our body where energy can flow freely from the base of the spine (the Root Chakra), through and beyond the top of the head (the Crown Chakra). When energy can flow freely through us like this, we can achieve a state of union with cosmic energy, which flows through all living things. When each chakra is unblocked, it spins like a wheel, hence the word ‘chakra’ meaning ‘wheel’ in Sanskrit.
Since yoga is both a physical and spiritual practice, yoga poses are not only exercises for your body but also your mind, emotions, and spirit, making it the perfect practice for balancing your chakras.
