Chatauranga Dandasana Muladhara Chakra sculpture part 1 of a 7 chakra series.
The chakras are spiraling wheel spiritual energy centers contained in 7 regions of our subtle body. Each chakra has an associated color. Blockages of these different areas are thought to be contributing factors to illness and disease. The practice of yoga and meditation insure that we keep an open flowing channel of prana (life force) from our root to our crown.
The Muladhara chakra is the red root chakra located at the base of our spine that governs fight or flight response and sexuality. Chatauranga Dandasana pose strengthens our core and give us a sense of well being and security.
