Brow chakra/Third eye (ajna) Location: centre of head, behind forehead

Throat chakra (visuddha) Location: throat area

Heart chakra (anahata) Location: midway between shoulder

Solar plexus chakra (manipura) Location: above the navel

Sacral chakra (svadhisthana) Location: behind and just below the navel

Root chakra (Kundalini) Location: base of spine and the pubic bone and includs genitals and reproductive organs.

There are seven main energy centres (chakras) of the body which resonate with the seven rainbow colours. There are known to be many more Chakras with B.K.S Iyengar stating that between the navel and the heart are the Manas (mind) and Surya (sun) Chakras.

A Chakra is like a spiral of energy, each one relating to the others. Chakra (pronounced sha-kra) is the Sanskrit word for ‘ wheel’ or ‘turning ‘.

They are the openings for life energy to flow into and out of our aura. Their function is to vitalize the physical body and to bring about the development of our self-consciousness. They are associated with our physical, mental and emotional interactions.

Thus good health and well being is achieved by a balance of all these energies.
