Don't take these positions too literally, but rather take them as physical switches for the more subtle chakras. You should note that most of the chakras lie within the spine; mooladhara is outside the bottom of the spine and ajna is at the top of the spine; bindu, which is not strictly a chakra, is at the back of the head. We have shown sahasrara in the centre of the crown of the head. This is entirely symbolic. You should carefully note the exact locations and relate them to your own body.
