I've teamed up with YogoGirls this month for an instagram collaboration. It's pretty damn obvious we both like to get a bit artsy with our interpretation and exploration of yoga so we thought what better than looking at balancing out chakras ? Each chakra has a color and specific group of yoga poses associated with it which leaves plenty of room for creative interpretation and we love to get creative!
Root chakra – Muladhara | Color: Red
Located at the base of the spine and related to our basic need for survival, safety and security. It is the sense of ‘I HAVE’.
When the muladhara is blocked we can feel anxious, insecure and frustrated. We often victimize ourselves and find it hard to stand in our power, feeling like we don’t belong anywhere. Physical ailments like constipation, weak bones, and knee problems are associated with this chakra. The male’s sexual organs are located in this chakra, which could be the reason why, for men, sex is primarily a physical response. A healthy root chakra promotes feelings of security and encourages exploration to find your life's purpose and achieve success. A balanced root chakra also generates the flow of energy to all other chakras.
