So how did your exploration with the 1st chakra go? Did you find yourself feeling more grounded and centered? If you’re not sure, keep a journal and take a moment after each practice session with the chakras to write down what your experience was like – how you are feeling post-practice. It can be really informative and illuminating.
Moving onward and upward to the 2nd chakra – Svadisthana – which lies in the pelvic region. Our hips, pelvis, reproductive organs, low back and kidneys are governed by this chakra. This chakra is about opening to and experiencing joy and pleasure. Water is the element associated with this chakra. Since water flows and moves, balancing this chakra can help us learn to “go with the flow.”
Like the other even numbered chakras, the second chakra is a feminine chakra, meaning that it draws energy in and invites us to become more receptive. This encourages us to accept what is; to feel what we feel; to open up to life as it is. When we are less resistant, we create the environment for our body to open and become less tense and tight.
In the following sequence, we’ll explore a brief asana sequence to help open the hips, and awaken and rebalance the second chakra so that we feel more present, more “in” our lives.
