What is the Chakra system?  Chakras are the energy sources that are placed in seven different points on the spinal column.  They are responsible for disturbing the life energy and can get out of balance. But yoga poses can help bring the chakra’s into balance.  Come with me on a seven week Chakra Journey into energy balance!

Muladhara Chakra and Yoga- Excessive Energy

The Root Chakra energy is focused at the base of the spine and is associated with the color red and feelings of security, survival, and stability.

Do you have:
Heaviness, sluggishness, slow movements
Resistance to change
Overeating
Material fixation
Workaholism
Excessive spending?
Then you may have too much energy around your Root Chakra

Do you have:
Fear, anxiety
Resistance to structure
Underweight
Spaciness, flightiness, vagueness
Disconnection from your body
Restlessness, inability to sit still
Difficulty manifesting?
Then you may have too little energy around your Root Chakra

Do you want to be balanced?  Yes! Here is what you could experience:
Groundedness
Physical health
Being comfortable in your own body
A sense of safety and security
Stability and solidity
Right livelihood
Prosperity
Ability to be still
Presence in the here and now

Muladhara Chakra and Yoga Practice

How can you balance your muladhara chakra and yoga?

Sukhasana- Close your eyes and feel the earth beneath you.

Balasana- Notice how it feels to be completely supported by the ground beneath you as you let your whole body relax.

Virabhadrasana B- This pose means “fierce warrior” so what better pose to help you face your fears and doubts?

Malasana- This pose you brings you close to the earth and helps calm the mind and spirit while strengthening the lower back and opening the hips.

Anjanyasana- This pose creates an intense stretch for the psoas and quads.  These muscles are associated with our flight-or-fight response and are deeply connected to the first chakra energy center.

You could also try connecting to your Muladhara Chakra and yoga with the essential oils of cypress, frankincense, vetiver, and sandalwood. I also love Chakra Singing Bowls (paid link)! 

The chakras are a journey, Muladhara chakra and yoga included. Take the Journey full journey: Root, Sacral, Solar Plexus, Heart, Throat, Third Eye, and Crown.

Yoga is my passion, teaching is my life. I started teaching yoga when my husband entered the US Air Force and now my career travels with me. Every time I move, I look for places to teach and a community of caring yogis who I grow to love and then one day, leave behind. This is a place where we can reconnect and create our yoga together. This site can travel with you. Welcome! View more posts
