You can support Veteran Yoga programs and Veterans with these Seva Mala beads. The thrust behind MalaforVets is to support Veterans. This is where you come in. You can help yourself...and help a Veteran all at the same time. Currently I have the Support Precedes Action Mala which supports Mindful Yoga Therapy, The Survivor Bracelet which helps raise awareness for the #22aDayChallenge, the Warrior Protection Mala (looking for a Non-Profit to sponsor), the all new Warrior Mala, (compliments of Dharmashop.com) and coming soon, the Battle Tested mala.
According to Tantric tradition, everyone has seven energy centers that serve as junction points between the body and consciousness, or between matter and the mind. These spinning vortices, called chakras in Sanskrit, receive, assimilate and express our vital life energy. When the flow of energy in one or more of the chakras becomes blocked, we may develop physical and mental illnesses.
The location of each chakra loosely corresponds to an area of the body’s anatomy and is associated with a specific color. Here are the seven chakras and their Sanskrit names:
Muladhara, Svadhisthana, Manipura, Anahata, Vishuddha, Ajna, and Sahaswara.
