The root chakra, positioned at the base of your spine, houses the raw, static life force energy known as Kundalini. Also known as the 1st chakra or Muladhara in Sanskrit, it governs your “survival instincts” and is associated with red — the color of vitality and energy. When the first chakra is open and balanced, you feel grounded and at ease with the world around you.
Yoga for the Root Chakra, Yoga for All
Incorporating yoga into your daily routine is a great way to open and balance your body’s chakras. Although a series of yoga poses are intended for individual chakras, the asanas (or poses) ultimately benefit the entire body. It is impossible to energize one energy center without affecting the rest of the system.
