Body Balance

What are Chakras & Why should we care?

Life’s all about balance, right? But, how do we actually achieve it?

The word Chakra in Sanskrit means wheel, disc, or circle. A Chakra is a center of subtle energy on our body that connects our energy bodies and effects our overall health and consciousness. They are non- physical structures that belong to the extraphysical dimension of our body. In conscientiology, a neuroscience of consciousness, there are 7 main Chakras that are depicted as circles in the model adopted.


To function at their best, your chakras need to stay open, or balanced. If they get blocked, you may experience physical or emotional symptoms related to a particular chakra. The main chakras run from the base of your spine (root) to the top of your head (crown).
