How to balance your Root Chakra - Tips and techniques. "The Root Chakra, also known as Muladhara, is the energy center at the base of your spine. It is the first of the seven chakras, and connects to our sense of groundedness as well as instincts of survival. When off balance, it can make us feel low energy, alienated – from ourselves and others – and easily angered. When in balance, it makes us feel secure and stable, full of health, energy, and vitality."
