The word Chakra means spinning wheel in Sanskrit. We have seven major and over 100 minor chakras. Chakras are energy centers in our bodies. Each of the main chakras is the center of an energy body that, when healthy, is in and around our entire physical body. In other words, each chakra affects our entire body, not just the area of the body in which it is centered.
Chakras have everything to do with our aura – our energy field that surrounds and permeates us. We have many chakras, but in this class we will focus on the seven main chakras in our body. There are a number of models for the human energy field and the chakras.
