How To Align Your Chakras


Your chakras are the seven points throughout your body where spiritual and physical energy are channelled. Each of your chakras has individual attributes, and is connected to unique parts of your existence.

We are not able to see or touch any of the seven chakras, but we can sense them, we can feel them, and we can work to enhance how well our energy flows through these points.

Aligning your chakras is important because they can either become too closed up or too open – for any number of reasons! Read on to discover how you can align your chakras, and in doing so boost your happiness and wellbeing!

The Root Chakra

The root chakra can be found at the base of the spine. When energy is flowing through this chakra properly you will feel grounded and connected to the universe.

Practicing grounding yoga poses, such as Bridge Pose, Warrior Pose and Standing Forward Bend Pose, can help to align the root chakra. You can also make a conscious effort to wear red coloured clothing in order to further bring balance to the root chakra.

The Sacral Chakra

The sacral chakra is just below the belly button. When energy flows through the sacral chakra in an optimum way you will have greater control over your feelings, have a better understanding of your emotions, and be more connected to your sexuality.

Engaging in hip opening yoga poses, such as Bound Angle Pose, Cow Face Pose and Eagle Pose, can help to align the sacral chakra. Wearing orange coloured garments can also help when it comes to aligning this chakra.

The Solar Plexus Chakra

Found just above the belly button, the solar plexus chakra impacts your anxieties, your fears and your personal strength. If the flow of energy is inhibited then you may feel as though you are drained of these things.

Heat building yoga poses, such as Sun Salutation, Boat Pose and Downward Facing Dog, are very useful for aligning the solar plexus chakra. Donning yellow coloured clothing can also help!

The Heart Chakra

The heart chakra is in the chest. When this chakra is aligned as it should be you will have a genuine sense of compassion for those around you. Also, you will be able to give and receive love without limitations.

Yoga poses that encourage the chest to open are ideal for helping to align the heart chakra. You may try Cobra Pose, Camel Pose and Fish Pose to get you started! Green is the colour of choice for this chakra.

The Throat Chakra

This chakra is of course in the throat. When it is completely in alignment you will be able to communicate clearly and express yourself with clarity and ease. You may notice that some people in your life are unable to voice their opinions or make their feelings known, whereas others may find it difficult not to over-share every last thought. You can probably guess which of these types of people have a blocked throat chakra and whose chakra has become too open!

Certain yoga poses are incredibly useful for opening up the throat, and also for strengthening the muscles in the connected areas. Incorporate Lion’s Pose, Plow Pose and Legs-Up-The-Wall Pose to feel these benefits and to align this chakra. Furthermore, light blue coloured clothing can help to encourage energy to flow through this chakra in a desirable way.

The Third Eye Chakra

The third eye chakra can be found in the middle of your forehead, and when it is functioning as it should, your intuition is at its peek.

Restorative yoga poses are the best to utilise when you are trying to enhance the flow of energy through your third eye chakra. Child’s Pose, for example, is a very good choice and is perfect for beginners to yoga. You may also try Adept’s Pose and Savasana. You will likely find that energy flows more freely through your third eye chakra when you wear dark blue clothing.

The Crown Chakra

The crown chakra sits upon the top of the head. If you are to be able to tap into higher states of consciousness, such as through meditation, then it is important that this chakra is balanced well. When the crown chakra is in alignment your awareness will be enhanced and you will be better able to be present in each moment.

Balancing poses are best for aligning this chakra. Try adding Tree Pose, Eagle Pose and Angled Crescent Lunge to your regular practice. Also, including dark purple and white in your clothing colour scheme can help.

Balancing The Chakras With Coloured Clothing



As we mentioned in our last blog post, the colour scheme of PAMA London clothing matches the various chakras throughout the body. It is our belief that you can work to bring some balance back to inharmonious area of your life by choosing to wear clothing that matches unbalanced chakra areas.


Why is it Important to Balance the Chakras?

In very basic terms, the chakras are the seven points within our body that energy flows through. These energy centres can become blocked for any number of reasons, but issues are usually connected in some way to emotional imbalances. These chakra blockages can manifest in countless detrimental ways, such as illness, pain and further emotional and spiritual conflicts.

By striving to rebalance the chakras, we can release blockages and allow the flow of energy through the body to return to normal.

Only when energy is flowing without obstruction through all seven of the chakras can the body and mind function in the most optimum way.

The Crown Chakra

At the very top of your head the crown chakra can be found. This chakra is concerned with staying connected to the spirit and soul. It is the very basis of our spirituality, and when it is balanced it will enable us to live lives full of clarity.

If you feel like this is an area of your life that isn’t balanced, then wearing violet or white coloured clothing can help you to enhance this connection with yourself.

The Third Eye Chakra

When energy is flowing through the third eye chakra in a desirable way, your ability to see the bigger picture will be more prevalent, and you will make wise decisions.

Wearing clothes that are dark blue in colour can help to balance this chakra. In doing so you will improve your understanding of your environment and also your understanding of your own actions.

The Throat Chakra

The throat chakra, as the name suggests, is in the throat. This chakra is representative of how we are able to communicate and express ourselves in an authentic and genuine way. It is not only connected to how confidently we express ourselves, but also to how truthfully we do so.

Light blue is the colour to choose when you are trying to improve the way in which you communicate and express yourself. Doing so can also influence how well you listen to those around you.

The Heart Chakra

The heart chakra is where your compassion, empathy and forgiveness stems from, and can be found just above the heart. It is the essence of how you love yourself and how you love those around you.

The heart chakra is also linked to how you love the things you enjoy, and how much you enjoy the things that you love!

The colour green feeds that heart chakra and helps you to open yourself up to those around you. It can also help to soothe your own heart if you are experiencing heartache or sadness.

The Solar Plexus Chakra

This chakra is in the upper abdomen. It better enables you to maintain your inner strength and to protect your emotional energy. The solar plexus chakra is a source of personal power, and can also be thought of as your inner fire, fuelling your confidence and motivating you to stay strong and resilient.

Yellow is the colour that supports this chakra, and choosing yellow clothing will spark the solar plexus chakra into action! When this happens you can notice your self-esteem and self-worth thrive.

The Sacral Chakra

Your sexuality, sensuality and creativity are all represented by the sacral chakra. It is located just below the navel. When your sacral chakra is in balance, you will find it much easier to accept change in your life and in your relationships.

Wearing orange will influence the power of this chakra, and can inspire you to express and enjoy yourself in previously undiscovered ways.

The Root Chakra

The root chakra is found at the base of the spine and guides you to maintaining a sense of calm and stability. This chakra also encourages a connection between the mind, body and Mother Earth. Additionally the root chakra is concerned with honouring your relationship with your family and appreciating your roots.

The root chakra is enhanced by wearing the colour red. When you do so you will feel a greater sense of control over the things that you consider to be pivotal to your existence and survival, such as your finances, your security and your independence.

Having now read this article you may have become aware of which of your chakras may be blocked! Head to our online store to see which of our garments match the colours that you need to incorporate into your life to remedy your energy flow!

Follow Your Intentions

The first part of namaste comes from "namaha," a Sanskrit verb that originally meant "to bend." Bending is a sign of submission to authority or showing some respect to some superior entity." Over time, "namaha" went from meaning "to bend" to meaning "salutations" or "greetings." The "te" in namaste means "to you," Deshpande says. So all together, namaste literally means "greetings to you." In the Vedas, namaste mostly occurs as a salutation to a divinity.
