SOME TYPES OF CHAKRAS

 
YOGA is almost used to the ancient of Indian language, some vocabularies had derived from Sanskrit. Therefore, it is difficult to understand its concepts and characteristics absolutely. By the way, I found out more on the internet and summed up for my reading comprehension.

Chakras literally means a disc, curcular (or flower petal shaped) vortexes of energy lying across seven different points on our spinal column. The seven chakras are connected to different glands and organs in the body and are responsible for uniform distribution of “Chi” (also called “Qi” or Praana or life energy) through them. When there is a disruption in this life energy or a blockage in any one or more Chakras, the individual may suffer from health or mental issues. Thus, the Chakras form the energy ecosystem of every individual. A deficiency in this ecosystem can wreak havoc in the different areas of life. Blocked energy in our seven chakras can often lead to illness, so it’s important to understand what each chakra represents and what we can do to keep this energy flowing freely. Here’s my summary:
