7 Chakras- Art & Notes + Upcoming Bandhas Workshop at Ramapo College of NJ
Chakras, is a Sanskrit word which means wheels of light. There are 7 major energy centers you need to connect to when you balance and heal your energy body. These centers allow for a smooth flow of energy to move through you. When a chakra is blocked, dis-ease follows. When a chakra is open and spinning its light, you experience good health. This is wisdom the yogis in ancient India spoke of long ago. To this day yoga practitioners and healers of all sorts such as Reiki Masters and Shamans refer to the chakras when they speak of the energy body. In ancient Egypt, the chakras were viewed as the endocrine system.
I lead the subtle/energy body teachings at Ramapo College of New Jersey's 200hr Yoga Teacher Training. In this post I'm sharing a few notes and artwork I created over the years to introduce you to or expand on your understanding of the chakras. As you review this post, I suggest you gaze into the artwork for a bit and notice what you feel. Then read out loud the English and Sanskrit name of the chakra. Don't worry about pronouncing it wrong. The effort in trying is a good thing. Under the chakra's Sanskrit name is a characteristic of the chakra. I'm also including a mini paragraph about each chakra. Here you will learn its color association, mantra, and a bit more. If you find this information about the energy body interesting, please join me for the:
