The system incorporates the concept of Prana or 'life force energy'similar to the Chinese concept of chi. It includes 7 major chakras (energy centers); Root, Navel, Solar Plexus, Heart, Throat, Third Eye, & Crown and 72,000 nadis (energy channels) of which there are three major channels; Sushumma (carries Kundalini energy up the spine), Pingala, & Ida (which carry solar and lunar energy respectively in aspiral around the Sushumma and chakras).
The practitioner uses the concept of a basic constitution or dosha for each individual, which may include aspects of Kapha (earth), Pitta (fire), or Vatta (air)and may be influenced by heat, cold, dryness or dampness.
