What is a Chakra?

The word ‘chakra’ is derived from the Sanskrit word meaning ‘wheel’.┬áThe chakras are the junction points between Consciousness & Physiology.

Gurmukhi, a Kundalini Yoga Teacher explains:

“Our bodies are gifts from God. We need them to be here. For it is in loving and appreciating our bodies that we begin the path to consciousness. Happiness is your birthright. Opening, or balancing all your chakras is the key to that happiness.”

“Our bodies are like complex worlds within worlds. We know where they begin and end, and yet they are vast and full of mysteries which we may never understand. No machine has ever been devised by a human that is as complex or artful as our own human body. The ancient system of chakras is a way to understand ourselves. There is an incredible amount of subtle interaction going on all the time.”
