Svadhisthana Chakra (Sacral Flow)
As we continue with this season’ s Chakra energy balancing; this weeks area of focus is with the Svadhisthana Chakra, or the energy center located between the navel and the public bone. This is our fluid, flowing reservoir of prana within the body and controls our sense of sensuality and creativity. We will stimulate this energy within us by opening the hips, and inviting slow flowing movement throughout the body.
When this sweet chakra is imbalanced, you may not have a sense of enjoyment in life, or you lack appreciation for life by not recognizing it’s beauty. You may also be putting too much importance on discipline and self-control, or the opposite; and feel that your physical drives are controlling you. An imbalance can also reflect poor sexual health both emotionally or physically, fertility issues, menstrual discomfort, and problems with bladder, kidneys, or prostate.
Our intention in classes this week is to invite greater awareness to this energy center within the body, and encourage balance between enjoying life with all of our senses, opening to creativity, and acceptance of personal sensuality.
