Yoga teaches us that the body has seven centers of spiritual power, or chakras. To experience total well-being-physically, mentally, and spiritually--we must keep our chakras in balance. This highly accessible, practical guide discusses the key characteristics of each chakra, its related physical disorders, and how to recognize whether it is overactive, underactive, or balanced. You'll learn how to balance each chakra--and maintain that balance for a lifetime--with the right mantras, postures, breathing techniques, and meditation exercises.
