What is Chakra? Chakra is a Sanskrit word. Chakra literally means the ‘wheel’ or disk. We may think of it as the wheels of life and different energies within the body. Like a journey – cycle of life living within us (Prana). Prana can be related to the breath, the life movement-energy. Like from birth to death.
