Chakras and Endocrine Glands



In the yogic tradition, chakras are the energy centres of the human body.

They are located at major branching of the nervous system.

They are connected to each other by channels (nadis) where vital energy (prana)

flows between the base of the spine to the top of the skull

(for more details, see Wikipedia).

The chakras are associated with endocrine glands which secrete the hormones that are the chemical messengers which ensure the proper functioning of our organism

(for more details, see Wikipedia)


The 5+ Tibetans DVD and the Sufi Chakra Breathing CD

are very good tools to increase vital energy (Prana) and

direct it towards each energy centre (chakra) to stimulate its endocrine glands
