Located at the base of the spine, the Root Chakra (Muladhara) forms our foundation, the seat of our life force, and is the building block on which all other chakras rest. Associated with the color red and the symbol of the four-petal Lotus flower, the Root Chakra deals with feelings of security, trust and survival as well as our connection with our physical body and its nourishment.
When this chakra is in balance we feel grounded, strong and secure and have a sense of inner security that allows us to trust in the universe.
Try a cup of this earthy, grounding herbal tea to help you link to your foundation. The pink cup has a tart aroma and a slightly fruity taste of sweet spices that is sure to please. To connect to this center try spending a little time each day in nature.
Brew 1 teaspoon in 8oz of boiling water and steep for 10 minutes.
To balance the 1st Chakra, try poses such as: Mountain Pose (Tadasana) Side-Angle Pose (Parsvakonasana) Warrior Pose (Virabhadrasana) Standing Forward Bend (Uttanasana) Bridge Pose (Setu Bandha Sarvangasana) Tree Pose (Vrksasana) Head to Knee Pose (Janu Sirsasana) Garland Pose (Malasana) Reclined Bound Angle Pose (Supta Baddha Konasana) Supported Corpse Pose (Salamba Savasana) Supported Child's Pose (Salamba Balasana)
