The 7 Main Chakras

As we navigate through the ups and downs of life, it's important to maintain balance within our bodies and minds. One way to achieve this is through the practice of balancing our chakras.

Now, I know what you may be thinking,

"Chakras? Isn't that some new-age, hippy-dippy thing?"

But trust me, friend, tapping into your chakras can bring a whole lot of enlightenment and JOY to your life.


In this blog I’ll talk about:

Chakra Basics

Chakras are energy centers located along the spine that correspond with different areas of our body and our emotions. There are seven main chakras, and each one has its own unique qualities and benefits. By bringing balance to these energy centers, we can excel in these areas of our lives even more.


For those of you that are new to the woo woo talk about our inner life …

Here’s the 'Chakra for Dummies' explanation of the main properties

of each Chakra:


First up is the

Root Energy Center, the Muladhara Chakra,

located at the base of the spine. This chakra is all about grounding and stability, making it especially beneficial for those who may be experiencing major life changes, such as starting a family or a new career. Balancing the root chakra can help you feel more grounded and secure, and give you the confidence to take on whatever life throws your way.


Next up is the

Sacral Energy Center, Swadhisthana Chakra,

located in the lower abdomen. This chakra is all about creativity and passion, which can be especially beneficial for those who may feel stuck in a rut, looking to reignite their creative spark or even those looking to start a new career. Balancing the sacral chakra can help you tap into your inner artist and creative flow and bring more joy and excitement into your life.


Moving on to the

Solar Plexus Energy Center, the Manipura Chakra,

located in the upper abdomen area. This chakra is all about self-confidence and personal power, making it especially beneficial for those who may be feeling a bit lost or unfulfilled in their careers. Balancing the solar plexus chakra can help you feel more confident in your abilities and give you the motivation to pursue your goals and dreams.



The Heart Energy Center, the Anahata Chakra,

located in the center of the chest, is all about love, compassion and other heart qualities. Balancing this chakra can help you open your heart to self love and deeper, more meaningful relationships with others. This can be especially beneficial for those who may be dealing with major life changes such as divorce or empty nest syndrome.


Next up is the

Throat Energy Center, the Vishuddha Chakra,

located at the base of the throat. This chakra is all about communication and self-expression. Balancing the throat chakra can help you speak your truth with confidence, which can be especially beneficial for those who may be dealing with communication issues at work or in their personal relationships.



The Third Eye Energy Center, The Ajna Chakra,

located in the center of the forehead, is all about intuition and inner wisdom. Balancing this chakra can help you tap into your inner guidance system and make better, more informed decisions. This can be especially beneficial for those who may be feeling the world is collapsing around them and facing major life decisions or career changes.


Last but not least, we have the

Crown Energy Center, the Sahasrara Chakra,

located at the top of the head. This chakra is all about connection to the divine and spiritual enlightenment. Balancing the crown chakra can help you tap into a higher level of consciousness and experience a deeper sense of purpose and fulfillment in life.

How to Balance and Activate your Chakras:

There are several different ways to balance and activate your chakras! One of my favorites is specific Yoga Poses that target specific chakras. Meditation and working with the different colors of the chakras is also an effective way to balance your chakras. And let's not forget about the power of sound! Using singing bowls or chanting mantras can have a tremendous impact on your chakras, helping to open up blocked energy and create a more harmonious flow. If you're interested in any of these ways of balancing your Chakras, check out the Chakra Yoga Classes on ELEV8 Workouts in the Yoga Dance Fitness Workouts Program. And if you're in Los Angeles, join me for the

'Tap IN and Tune Up your Chakras' Series at LA DanceFit starting the 2nd weekend of May.

Another fabulous option is to work with crystals and gemstones, as each one corresponds to a different chakra and can help to clear and balance your energy centers. The key is to experiment and find what works best for you, because everyone's journey to chakra bliss is unique.


Just remember, like anything else, practice brings greater results. You can’t expect to get strong from doing pushups once, but doing them 3 times a week will have a measurable impact on your strength. The same thing goes for balancing your chakras. You will feel the difference as you practice regularly.


To summarize …

So, there you have it, my peeps, the seven main chakras and a few of their main benefits. See, it’s not so woo woo afterall.

By balancing your energy centers, you can experience a more harmonious, exciting and balanced life. Don't let the stigma surrounding chakras scare you off, give it a try and see for yourself the positive impact it can have on your life.

And remember, it doesn’t matter how old you are, age is just a number, it's never too late to start your journey towards a more balanced and fulfilling life.


Stay tuned, I will be doing more in depth blogs on each Chakra, beginning with the Root, which will drop next week.
