'Chakra' is a Sanskrit word meaning 'wheel' or 'disk', and is an integral thought in Ayurveda, meditation and yoga.

There are seven main chakras in the body - from the base of the spine to the crown of the head - corresponding in location with major nerve centres. These key points are believed to hold a 'vortex' of subtle energy - ideally kept free-flowing and in balance.

In this first article we will look briefly at each chakra, and how they can be an invaluable tool in optimising our health and wellbeing.

The first Chakra - Muladhara - is the source of stability and security.

The second Chakra - Svadhisthana - is the source of sexuality and creativity.

The third Chakra - Manipura - is the source of personal power and will.

The fourth Chakra - Anahata - is the source of love and connection.

The fifth Chakra - Vishuddha - is the source of truth and expression.

The sixth Chakra - Ajna - is the source of intuition and inspiration.

The seventh Chakra - Sahaswara - is the source of spiritual connection and enlightenment.

As mind, body, soul and spirit are so intimately intertwined, a blockage or imbalance in any chakra will result in a physical, mental and/or emotional manifestation. Chakras therefore provide a great way to address your health and wellbeing holistically and at the root.
