The following is a pose intended to enhance your awareness of the 1st chakra. Meditate on the word you chose while experiencing the posture. If you feel guided to chose a different pose that captures the concept of 1st chakra energy for you, that is fine.
Tadasana (mountain pose) - The root of all standing poses. Stand as tall as possible, but be as relaxed as possible. Stack your knees over your feet, hips over knees, feel the pelvis resting on the hips, the ribs are lifted out of the pelvic bowl, let the front of your neck guide your head back over your shoulders. The spinal vertebrae rest one on top of the other.
This pose can be done against a wall or lying on the floor to assist you in clarifying your alignment. Maintain activity in the legs even if you are lying down.
Can you feel the roots of your feet firmly planted on the floor? Could someone push you over, or are your standing strong and tall?
*Note: Whenever you practice a yoga posture (asana), rest when you need to and do not force. It should feel invited and natural to be in any pose.
