How to Open Your Chakras - As explained by an episode of Airbender

If you have ever wanted a simple, no fuss explanation of what chakras are and how to work them, I highly recommend checking out this youtube video.  It is only 10 minutes, but I guarantee it will be 10 minutes that will stick with you for a while.
