To start my first day of my detox. How could I possibly go pass this amazing Chakra Fruit Salad. This recipe was taken from My New Roots. I have to say amazing. It has all the colours of the Chakras. There are 7 Chakras in the body in which energy flows. Chakras are centers of energy, located on the midline of the body. The first chakra begins at the base of the spine and energy moves up the length of the spine to finish at the crown of head chakra. This is a great way to bring balance into our energetic system through the foods we consume.

From a yoga perspective the endocrine system is linked to the Chakra system. Chakras functions as wheels, drawing in life energy prana. They circulate prana along the main channels and distribute it to the glands, organs, blood and nervous system. Each chakra corresponds to an endocrine gland, physiological function and specific region of the body. Asanas or yoga poses stretch and compress different parts of the body. By choosing different postures we stimulate different chakras or endocrine function. With regular practice we improve our endocrine function, by stimulating the production of hormones and correcting the imbalances. Hence, improving our emotional and physiological well-being.
