'Chakra' is a Sanskrit word meaning 'wheel' or 'disk', and is an integral thought in Ayurveda, meditation and yoga.

There are seven main chakras in the body - from the base of the spine to the crown of the head - corresponding in location with major nerve centres. These key points are believed to hold a 'vortex' of subtle energy - ideally kept free-flowing and in balance.

Today we will look at the root (or base) chakra, Muladhara.

Muladhara is located at the base of the spine, and is one of the two chakras of matter and manifestation. It is responsible for feelings of security, stability, and having your basic needs met.

Its colour is red, and bija mantra is Lam.

Imbalances in the root chakra may manifest in:
An inability to sustain energy and/or take action.
Anxiety and/or nightmares.
Eating disorders.
Problems with the lower back, bowels, or legs.


To balance the root chakra, try:
Practicing aromatherapy and anything emphasing your sense of smell.
Any physical movement that connects us to the earth and ground, ie. walking, running, stamping.
A warm bath or massage to engage our sense of touch and physicality.
