Islam and Hinduism
The Chakra System originated within the yoga traditions of India, most specifically the Tantric period, circa 500 - 1000 AD. Therefore, yoga is an ideally designed practice to not only train your mind and body, but to access your chakras. The word yoga means yoke or union, and one can see how the chakra system represents the structural aspect of that yoke -- the means through which mind and body, mortal and divine, connect. In that way yoga is the prime tool for accessing this sacred architecture of the soul. The postures listed below are grouped according to chakra. They are a guideline and by no means exhaustive.
