In the Hindu translation of the chakra system, the root chakra is the first chakra. It has the colour red. This chakra is associated with the dense, solid parts of the body like teeth, bones, nails, legs, arms, intestines, anus, and prostate. It is in the location of the bottom of the spine. Working on different yoga practices we are able to help balance this chakra.

When there is imbalance in this chakra you may notice feelings of : distrust of nature, greed for material possessions, a need to satisfy ones own desires and wishes above all else.

By practicing meditation, breath work, asana, yoga nidra, restorative yoga; focussing on this chakra you will feel more : trusting of Nature’s laws, connected to nature, with a deeper understanding of the even ebb and flow of nature.

I am a yoga teacher, and an electrician. I write a yoga blog, and I teach yoga classes online. My other blog is called End Lockdowns. In a democracy we accept that people have different opinions, and we allow those opinions to be voiced. My opinion which is that lockdowns are not scientific, and do not create healthy communities. The medical community at one point knew that informed consent was an important value. Currently the medical community has been split and there is a vocal part of it that thinks there are no issues with coercion and force in medicine. The part of the medical community that believes in mandating medical procedures and segregation is currently promoted through social media and other big tech. We are seeing a huge shift in wealth as a result. Poverty does not make people healthier. I do not think using force and coercion in medicine is a health promoting way to function. In the future, this will fail. It is only a matter of when. "Teach what is inside you, not as it applies to you, to yourself, but as it applies to the other." Yogacarya Sri T Krishnamacharya
