The stillness of the blue waterReflects whirling disks of light Embracing the air

Eastern teaching often describe the seven Chakras as "whirling disks of light". Chakras are energy vortexes in the body that are located at various points along the spine. Starting at the base (of the spine) and running upwards towards the crown of the head each Chakra radiates a specific colour and energy. Furthermore, as each Chakra relates to specific spiritual, emotional, psychological and physical issues, the conscious awareness and the balancing of these energy centres lead to an overall health and well-being.

Since a Chakra treatment in 2010, which made feel feel like a whole person again,  I always wanted to know more about chakras. Chatting to Andrea, I realised that tomorrow's masterclass could satisfy my curiosity.  It is especially exciting because it will be part of a series of masterclasses exploring Chakras. If you are interested, join us on the Yoga Flow Masterclass – 17-11-2012.

The First Chakra (Muladhara) or "Root Chakra" located at the very base of the spine consists of energy paths that extend downward like a root through the legs and feet, grounding you to the Earth.

In this first of a seven part series we will explore and awaken the First Chakra, improving our connection with earth through standing poses and seated forward bends in an all-levels Yoga Flow class.
