I’ve been stuck sitting behind a computer or in meetings for most of the day so have decided that I’m going to do another silent vinyasa practice today. I need to move some of that stagnant energy and get some more oxygen to my blood.
In today’s practice I’m going to be focusing on the sacral chakra which is often referred to as the centre of creativity, self expression and joy.
If I lost you at the word chakra – here is a quick (and hopefully comprehensive!) explanation:
Chakras are energetic wheels that run throughout your body. While there are many chakras in the body, there are 7 primary chakras running through the centre of the body that are most commonly focussed on.
Each chakra represents a different part of our physical, mental and spiritual well-being.
Sometimes these energetic wheels can be seen to be overactive or deficient through various physical, emotional and spiritual symptoms. Ideally we want to work with the body and mind to balance these energetic wheels so yoga is a perfect way to do this.
So tonight I am focusing on the sacral chakra which is connected to the adrenal gland. An example of deficiency in this chakra may manifest emotionally as being rigid or numb and excess in this energy wheel may manifest with strong mood swings. Forward bends in yoga practice are said to be a good way to bring this chakra into balance so my practice tonight will include a lot of these.
Time to unplug, get moving and balanced.
