Chakra yoga is an exercise system that encourages the flow of positive energy throughout the body, through using the yoga practice to open seven energy centres of the body. This practice identifies seven main energy centres called, "chakras," which are located along the spine from the base to the crown of the head. A chakra yoga class aims to cleanse these chakras and open them up to allow positive energy to flow throughout the body and re-balance participants' mind, emotions and spirit. A class may focus on a specific chakra, or may attempt to cleanse all seven chakras. Chakra yoga classes incorporate asana, pranayama, mantra and meditation. Like other forms of yoga that have grown in global popularity, it has become increasingly available as a commercialized form of exercise and now carries diverse meanings, both spiritual and secular, in various communities - although, Chakra yoga retains an explicit spiritual emphasis.
