Chakra is a Sanskrit word that means wheel or disk & refers to energy points in your body. They are referred to as spinning disks of energy that should stay "open" & aligned, as this leads to optimal physical & mental health.
There are 7 main Chakras & each corresponds to a specific colour, name, number, sound & area of the spine.
🔴 Root Chakra is represented by the colour red & is located at the base of the spine, in the tailbone area. When it is open & in alignment, we will feel grounded & secure both physically & mentally.
