The second chakra is bright orange, and like the fruit of an orange, it is fluid and nourishing. Its sanskrit name is certainly a mouthful, Svadhisthana. Otherwise known as the pelvic chakra, its focus areas are the hips, sacrum, genitals and kidneys. It is responsible for balancing our creativity and harmonizing our expressions and emotions. With characteristics of the water element, this chakra relishes fluid motion. If you feel emotionally repressed or have trouble going with the flow, grab your board and catch a wave!
Here are your poses for the week. Try one each day:
- Spinal Rolls
- Bhujangasana (Cobra)

“Yield to the flow. It’s the most intelligent fulfilling thing to do. Surrender your best sense of what to do or not to do and trust in the flow of being.” -Erich Schiffmann
