The solid foundations of your base chakra will determine how you overcome fear and stress.

Your base chakra is the energy centre that is associated with your stability and survival, as well as where you fit in the world. It represents your family, a secure home life, regular income, and your ability to manage your stress so that you are not overwhelmed.

Sometimes, in order to find balance in our lives, as well as appreciate the lessons that each experience teaches us, we move from one extreme to another. True abundance doesn’t just come from having money, it also stems from feeing fulfilled in our spirit.

There’s something magical about having a daily practice. For Shantelle, it’s about taking the time to wake up slowly and to have a routine that allows her to feel worthy. This way she’s not rushing around for anyone, and has time to spend working out, in nature and with people who inspire her.


No problem! I have you covered with this online course to help you understand your energy through 8 of your key channels, also known as your chakras. It’s a self-paced road map that includes workbooks, meditations, as well as accessible kundalini yoga (that you can do at your own pace and with your eyes closed).
