Root Chakra – The Basics + Yoga Activation Poses

Root Chakra Muladhara “Security & Survival”

The root Chakra represents feeling “rooted”, grounded, and stability. Muladhara is the centre of instincts. It is the lowest energy vibration, correlating to the physical plane of existence. It is effected by concerns of basic survival and sustenance (home, food, career, shelter, self-preservation). The root chakra connects us to our Earth. We connect to survival instincts and when this chakra is balanced we can feel emotionally stable, physically fit, and healthy.
