– Stomping your bare feet on the ground. The Root Chakra is all about feeling grounded.
– Practicing Kundalini Yoga can open up your lower spine. Bridge pose is a good pose to use for this chakra. Grounding your feet down into the earth in this pose and lifting the root chakra towards the sky, allows excess energy to be released. Keep your knees above your ankles and in line with your hips. Tuck your chin towards your chest. Start by holding for just a few seconds. Gradually after practicing over time you will begin to feel comfortable holding for longer. Never force a yoga posture, just allow for energy movement and release, always maintaining a steady and comfortable breath.
