Balance the Root Chakra and Get Grounded


Universal Healing Arts Connection—a wellness center for mind, body and soul in Cortlandt Manor—is hosting Get Grounded!—a workshop on the first chakra—from 7:15 to 8:45 p.m., April 12, 2024.  Participants of this fun and educational event, facilitated by Shima Chayvet, center founder, and Lisa Cito, master reiki healer and teacher, will learn ways to sustain balance and more.

The seven chakras are the primary energy centers of the body. They distribute the five pranas throughout the body and maintain a harmonious balance that preserves and restores overall health. The first chakra in the group, located at the base of the spine, is the muladhara chakra, also known as the root chakra.

Its location signifies its role as a link between the physical world and our internal energetic system. When this energy center is balanced, one feels grounded, stable, confident and strong in the world. Conversely, a blocked or imbalanced root chakra can lead to feelings of insecurity, anxiety, stress and a loss of personal bearings. Understanding the first chakra is key to balancing the energy system and achieving physical, mental and spiritual well-being.

Cost: $35. Location: Universal Healing Arts Connection, 4 Crestview Ave., Cortlandt Manor. For more information, call 914-737-4325. To register, visit
