Dru Yoga - Muladhara Chakra: the base centre

Dru Yoga - Muladhara Chakra: the base centre

sThe Muladhara chakra is our foundation chakra. We often go through our ‘yogic’ life, do our yoga and our meditation, but without conscious effort and directed intention, so our chakras and their imbalances can remain largely unchanged. It is also said to be a centre of rhythm - so things like walking and drumming are said to be very good to establishing balance and regulation in this centre.

The seven chakras of the human body
The 7 chakras are the energy centres in our body through which energy flows. The word 'chakra' is derived from the Sanskrit word meaning 'wheel'. Literally translated from the Hindi it means 'Wheel of spinning energy'. A chakra is like a whirling, vortex-like, powerhouse of energy.

Dru Yoga - The seat of compassion

Dru Yoga - The seat of compassion

Dru Yoga is often recognised as one of the most powerful forms of yoga to open up the heart centre in a gentle and flowing way. When you consciously open the heart many beautiful qualities become available to you including compassion, generosity, kindness, loyalty and gratitude. For this reason, the Seat of Compassion is a very important posture within Dru Yoga and it holds the key to one of our most important principles: the opening of the heart centre or Anahata chakra.

Overcoming Loneliness

The first step in overcoming loneliness is to make an effort to meet people. This usually means getting out of the house and it’s particularly good to have something to do with your evenings, as evenings can be the time people feel most lonely. 

Going out does not mean superficial socialising. Going out should be fun or meaningful so go somewhere that you feel comfortable, doing something that you enjoy.
