According to various yoga traditions, there are seven primary chakras. We will each briefly explain each chakra in turn. They are said to stretch from the pelvic floor to the top of the head along the length of the spine. Chakra, which is Sanskrit for "wheel," describes the concentrated energy points in your body. In the body, each color corresponds to a different energy point.
