The Solar Plexus Chakra - Manipura by tahl rinsky

Solar Plexus chakra – Manipura  |  Color: Yellow

Is located in the center of the abdomen and is the source of our personal power – ‘I CAN ‘. It is the ‘seat’ of the ego, the home for passion, impulse, anger and strength. When this chakra is open and clear we feel confident in who we are. We feel ready to take on new challenges with excitement and joy. Physical outcomes resulting from blockage includes poor digestion and liver function, diabetes, nervous exhaustion and food allergies. Balancing the Solar Plexus chakra allows you to be more aware of your own energy and being, comfortable in your decisions, and psychically connected to your “gut” feelings so that you may act accordingly with confidence.

Muladhara - The Root Chakra by tahl rinsky

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! 

Follow our accounts @YogoGirls  @trinskyyoga for all the details. 

 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.

The Stories we Tell. by tahl rinsky

When I look at these photos together, they evoke all different types of emotions. Images like Symbols have a powerful effect on the human mind. The same image can create a totally unique experience for 2 different people depending on what emotional, physical or mental state they are in.

The story below is about friendship, support and love. I chose not to write captions below so you can fill in the gaps and create your own experience.

If you're feeling inspired, write your own captions and in the comments below share with me the story these photographs evoke in your mind and heart.

With Love,
