The most common location for the Sacral Chakra is about three inches below the navel, at the center of your lower belly. In the back, it’s located at the level of the lumbar vertebrae. Other noteworthy locations described in different systems expand its location to the genital area, especially at the level of OVARIES for women and the TESTICLES for men.
Svadhisthana means “THE DWELLING PLACE OF THE SELF” and when in balance, it leads to feelings of WELLNESS, ABUNDANCE, PLEASURE, and JOY! When this chakra is out of balance, a person may experience emotional instability, fear of change, sexual dysfunction, depression, or addictions. Have no fear! You can balance and open this chakra by GETTING CREATIVE AND HONORING YOUR BODY. Getting in touch with your EMOTIONS so important because they are telling you something.
Through the consistent use of yoga asanas and pranayama you will begin to process old pain and anger. Consistent practice will also help you become STRONGER vs. throwing a tantrum or hurting yourself and/or someone else. Get in touch with your Sacral Chakra and use your body and breath to CREATE more beauty.
YOGA postures that will open and strengthen your Sacral Chakra include:
Dancer's Pose (Natarajasana)
Child's Pose (Balasana)
Cobra Pose (Bhujangasana)
Twisting Triangle Pose (Trikonasana)
Gland: Ovaries or Testicles
Stay creative yogis and remember, "An ounce of practice is more important than a ton of theory!” Get on your mat and bring that peace back out into the world. Alaska loves you and thanks for stopping by the blog!
Lots of Love and Light,
