The Chakras originated from the ancient practice of Yoga. The original words and teachings are noted in ancient language of Sanskrit. As such the meanings for each Chakra are deciphered by Yoga masters and cultural historians to the best of their experiences and knowledge over thousands of years. There could be diverse ways of denoting each Chakra's meaning depending upon the person's language and cultural background. We as performers in 2022 take these noted meanings as inspiration and build our fantastical Bollywood acts honouring and representing each Chakra to the best of our Dancing artistic abilities.
