Knowledge of the chakra system was passed down orally for generations and documented in Vedic texts around 5,000 years ago, predating modern religions. Ayurveda, the Science of Life, utilizes chakras, foods, herbs, routines, rituals, meditations, elements, and environments in order to balance unevenness in the body, mind, and soul.
A chakra is a vortex of constantly moving energy.
Imagine subtle energies glowing and rotating like gears.
Chakras provide a language for the unseen. Simultaneously tangible and symbolic, the spiraling energy of the chakras corresponds with glands in the endocrine system, organs in the body, and nerve ganglia of the spinal column as well as mental, emotional, and spiritual health. Also, each chakra corresponds directly with a color of the rainbow.
