There are seven 'Charkas' or energy centers in our body. Duringour young age, these centers (vortexes) spin very fast allowing the'prana shakti' or energy to move fast in the body. But as we grow oldor due to our irregular lifestyle, these charkas slow down or getblocked inviting sickness. The easiest and quickest way to regainyouth, optimal health and vitality is to get the vortexes spinning fastagain and to balance the charkas. The five rites accomplish this task,Ms Patel added.
