A Journey Through the Chakras
Week Seven: Sahasrara Chakra (Crown)

The crown chakra is associated with the transcendence of our perceived limitations, whether they are physical or psychological. The mind no longer dwells in the world of opposites. The quality of awareness that comes with the crown chakra is universal, transcendent. As we are immersed in the energy of the crown chakra, we feel a state of blissful union with all that is, of spiritual ecstasy. This chakra allows access to the upmost clarity and enlightened wisdom. The Crown chakra is primarily associated to the pituitary gland, and secondarily to the pineal and the hypothalamus. The hypothalamus and pituitary gland work in pair to regulate the endocrine system. Because of its location, the crown chakra is closely associated with the brain and the whole nervous system.

From the base of your spine to the top of you head, there are seven major chakras. The word chakra come from the sanskrit work for wheel or disk. Within the body lie seven vital energy centers or chakras. These chakras correspond to major nerve ganglia glands of the endocrine system and various bodily processes such as breathing, digestion and reproduction. The practice of yoga helps keep these centers of energy clear and flowing for optimal health. Come and join us on this journey down the central channel of the body. Over the next seven weeks will be be exploring the different chakras and how they effect our bodies. See you all soon!

Kathleen Kelly E-ryt500 and Karen Simcik ryt500 with be exploring the heart chakra in their classes throughout this week.
