Chakras are energy centres that may manifest physically, emotionally, mentally, spiritually, and socially/ in relationship. The yoga tradition is seeped in mystical wisdom and teachings that point to a mysterious quality of energy, life force, and being, an essential oneness and presence that is available and within all of us. Chakras are a sort of road map of self awareness and energetic alignment.

This Fall, Angella and I will be taking you on a journey, Chakra Essentials, Aromatherapy and Yoga Journey through the energy centers. Each class dedicated to one of these luminous and mysterious energy centers, starting with the Root, and riding the wave up the central channel to the Crown. Here and there, I will offer a newsletter starring each of these centers… so everyone can have taste of the magic.

Muladhara~ the Root Chakra

Earth. Grounding. Stability. Roots. Family. Home. Physical Body. Self Care. Security. Foundation. Support. Food.

The medicine of the Root Chakra, Muladhara, is earthy and deep, foundational, and physical. The root chakra offers us the gift of grounding, as well as a sense of security and stability. An imbalanced or challenged root chakra may manifest as instability, ungroundedness, physical ailments, lack of sustenance, and challenge in meeting basic needs and self care.

The way I see it, we could all use support for this aspect of ourselves, as the world that we inhabit itself is in a state of flux and instability. With global weather disasters, political instability, war, social injustice, and so much more…. grounding is necessary for all of us. I also believe, that as a society we are in the process of reclaiming our relationships with our bodies and the earth, that there has been a sort of estrangement and disconnect that is in the process of healing. Healthy Root Chakra support may include yoga and physical exercise, nutrition, nature connection, and a welcoming and nourishing home environment. Here is a lil Root Chakra love for you…

Find a place in nature where you can stand with bare feet in a relaxed Tadasana Mountain pose. Root down through the feet and stack knees over ankles, hips over knees, shoulders over hips, while standing both strong and at ease. Take a deep breath in, and as you exhale, imagine your roots stretching down deep into Mother Earth. With your next inhale, imagine life force energy rising up from the earth, and with that, feel your spine lengthen and crown rise toward the sky. Open up your senses to sound, sight, taste, touch, and smell… alow a feeling of grounding to arise as you connect with the earth and nature.
