All around our bodies are subtle energy fields. The fields vary in colour and are known as our Aura.
Our Aura's interact with us trough spiralling centres of energy. In yoga, these centres are known as Chakras. This is a Sanskrit word meaning 'Wheels of Light'.
There are seven main Chakras along with many minor Chakras. These Chakras interact with our body's ductless endocrine glands and lymphatic system. They feed in good energy and remove unwanted energy.
