What is the story of the chakra
Chakras: energy centers of the body
Chakras are the energy centers of the body (seven in number), which are lined up like pearls on a string along the spine up to the crown of the head. Each chakra is assigned certain properties that interlock and are more or less open depending on the phase and position of life. Chakra means something like wheel, so that each chakra can be imagined as a kind of flywheel that transports energy from a lower to the next higher level of development.
A state of equilibrium is only achieved when all chakras are open and the energy can flow freely from below upwards. However, this is usually not the case due to physical and mental blockages that can manifest themselves in each of the chakras. The different techniques of Hatha Yoga serve to overcome these blockages.
Knowledge through concentration on the chakras
In his practice techniques, the Hatha Yogi tries by concentrating on the chakras to find out where minor or negative characteristics lead to blockages and protective mechanisms. Like every other yoga path, that of Hatha Yoga seeks to free oneself from these blockages and to achieve a holistic awareness of unity.
In practice, the individual elements that are assigned to the chakras (see table) are used to strengthen the concentration on the chakras. For example, the colors are visualized or the syllables are sung to make the chakras, which can be imagined as wheels, vibrate.
