A wonderful yoga session - Root Chakra

Wednesday, January 12, 2011

I am taking a series of yoga classes based on the chakras or 7 centers along the spine that are thought of as wheels of energy. The first one is represented by the color red and is the root chakra located below the base of the spine. It is where our sense of groundedness and stability. It is almost like the first layer of Maslow's hierarchy - the need for food, clothing, safety and security. Our practice was based on being rooted through our feet or glutes for all of the poses. At the end the meditation introduction was the following: May you find rootedness, stability, and a sense of connection to all.

    In my TOTAL ignorance of Yoga, I must confess that when I saw the title of your blog I thought it was some sort of root vegetable emoticon

In a way, Yoga seems to be based on similar-type principals to Acupuncture!
