Second Chakra - Sacral Chakra

Aloha Everyone,

Here is a summary from our May 2013 classes where we reviewed 7 chakras.

SECOND CHAKRA - Sacral or Sex Chakra (Swadhisthana) – this is the chakra of self expression, creativity, birth and pure knowledge.  The second chakra also influences your power of concentration.

Location: Lower abdomen, approximately 2 inches below the navel and 2 inches inward towards your spine.

Element: Water

Color: Orange

Benefits:  Higher energy, innovation and creativity, retains clarity in blood by balancing water content in your body. 

Mantra - VAM

Mudra - (a) Yoni Mudra, gesture of water, interlace pinky, ring and middle fingers inwards, extend index fingers and thumbs touching finger tips  (b) Varuna Mudra, mudra of water, tip of little finger presses  the tip of thumb, other 3 fingers are extended

Asana - Chair pose, Kundalini Frog Pose, Gomukhasana (Cow Face Pose), Baddha Konasana (Bound Angle Pose), single and double leg rotations, body twists

Food:  Sweet fruits (melons, mangos, strawberries, passion fruit, oranges, etc.), honey, nuts, spices (cinnamon, vanilla, carob, etc).

CAUTION - Kundalini Yoga is a powerful science and I would like to pass on the warnings from Kundalini Yoga teachers I have studied under to approach your practice with intelligence and respect.  If you are practicing at home, please remember not to do excessive chakra meditations. Too much flow of energy (shakti) before your body is ready to handle is extremely dangerous   Please don’t forget to use common sense and do your practice in moderation.  Always allow your body to rest after practice and don’t forget to drink plenty of water.

Sat Nam -- Cathi
