A forum for all of those open to balancing their Chakras, enhancing their yoga practice and ensuring optimum holistic health


Screen Shot 2016-02-25 at 3.25.17 PMIf you’re like me and most people, a junk food breakfast (say a sweet pastry and mocha coffee) is what I’d most like to grab at Starbucks, but will no doubt put me in a tizzy for the rest of the day. I won’t think straight, I won’t be able to act calm and centered around my clients, or make the right decisions when problems arise… as I would if I had started off with the right breakfast for my Root Chakra.

In order to balance your chakras and promote optimal health and vitality, it’s important to cut out inflammatory foods, such as sugar, simple carbs (like bread and other flour products), and dairy products – which all play havoc with your blood sugar, especially for breakfast, just when you need to get your feet firmly planted on the ground.

The Root Chakra is all about feeling safe and secure – so ground yourself with lean protein sources (choose as many vegetarian options as possible) and lots and lots of root vegetables like beets, carrots and radishes… for breakfast, these are most palatable in vegetable smoothies.

Try this Sample Breakfast:

Detoxifying JuiceTry a smoothie or juice made of beets, carrots and kale followed by scrambled eggs or tofu mixed with veggies like red bell peppers, broccoli and red onion, seasoned with tumeric and Bragg Liquid Aminos (a wheat-free alternative to soy sauce). You’ll be ready to take on the day no matter what challenges come up!

Also, take time every day for at least a few minutes in nature to ground yourself. Do your morning yoga or Tai Chi outdoors or practice a Nalu Meditation (stare at something beautiful in nature for a minute or until you feel relaxed) or do the Circle of Joy Breath, inhaling and exhaling deeply to open your chest, heart and lungs.

Namaste!
