In yoga, chakras are the centers of the energetic body or the aura. While we have many throughout the body, there are seven major chakras. Each has its own meaning, significance and responsibility for different physical, mental, emotional and spiritual aspects of our being.
When an individual travels on the path of enlightenment, he/she must balance these seven chakras to achieve harmony and peace in his/her life. In yoga, each asana works to increase the flow of energy into a specific chakra and clear any negativities from it. Even simply focusing on the chakra location and visualizing its color will help us to clear and activate it.
