You are a being of energy, sustained by prana, chi, otherwise known as life force energy. Chakras, or energy centers are what keeps this vital energy flowing. When one or more of your chakras are blocked, slowed, imbalanced, or overactive, it can generate an imbalance for your spiritual, emotional, and physical wellbeing. For instance, if your solar plexus chakra is out of balance, physically, you may struggle with issues of metabolism or digestion. Emotionally, you may struggle with a lot of fear, anxiety, or depression. Spiritually, you may struggle with a need to control or the feeling that you have none at all.
While there are many chakras, though, most people focus on the seven primary chakras. Even seven chakras can seem a bit overwhelming when you are trying to keep them all cleared, activated, and aligned. However, while chakra wellness is not something to be taken lightly, yoga can streamline the process. The postures and breathing techniques help rebalance the flow of energy, unblocking stagnant chakras, aligning imbalanced ones, and slowing down those that have become overactive. Practicing yoga to align your chakras will boost your metabolism, improve the quality of your sleep, ease aches and pains, increase mental clarity, lower anxiety and stress, and so much more!
Whether you are new to chakra healing through yoga, hoping to explore the practice on a deeper level, or looking for an expert to help you work through some blockages, yoga massage with a trained practitioner can help take your chakra wellness to the next level. Yoga massage involves being guided through yoga postures by a practitioner while they massage specific pressure points and energy centers on your body. Since the practitioner is also doing acupressure as you assume the poses, this is a great way to relieve stubborn energy blockages and imbalances.

As Anodea Judith said, “Chakras are organizational centers for the reception, assimilation, and transmission of life-force energy. They are the stepping-stones between heaven and earth.”
