You may have heard of chakras in yoga or come across them in Eastern religions or new-age practices like crystal healing. But what are chakras? We have put together some definitions and a chakra chart to help you out!

What is a chakra?

Chakras are areas of energy in the body that run from the base of your spine to the top of your head. There are seven basic chakras, each with a corresponding color and symbols. The Sanskrit word chakra (pronounced “CHOCK-rah”) means wheel, which refers to the spinning energy in each of the seven chakras.
