Located at the base of the spine, this chakra forms our foundation. It represents the element earth, and is therefore related to our survival instincts, and to our sense of grounding and connection to our bodies and the physical plane. Ideally this chakra brings us health, prosperity, security, and dynamic presence.

The first embodied chakra is located at the base of the spine and can be felt through the muscles of the Pelvic floor. It connects you to the Earth through grounding, being present in the body. When this chakra is open and flowing you will feel body sensations more fully; you will also feel calm and stable and fully aware of your surroundings. contracting the muscles of the pelvic floor slightly will begin to activate this chakra for you. Walking with your arms free in nature, feeling you feet upon the ground, is a simple way to clear any held energy in the root.
