'Chakra' is a Sanskrit word meaning 'wheel' or 'disk', and is an integral thought in Ayurveda, meditation and yoga.

There are seven main chakras in the body - from the base of the spine to the crown of the head - corresponding in location with major nerve centres. These key points are believed to hold a 'vortex' of subtle energy - ideally kept free-flowing and in balance.

Today we will look at the sacral chakra, Svadhisthana.

Svadhisthana is located between the navel and pubic bone, and is one of the two chakras of matter and manifestation. It is responsible for our creativity, sensuality, and emotions.

Its colour is orange, and bija mantra is Vam.

Imbalances in the sacral chakra may manifest in:
Emotional instability and/or depression.
Addiction.
Problems with fertility and/or painful menstruation.
Complications with the pelvic floor, bladder and/or kidneys.


To balance the sacral chakra, try:
Engaging in any creative activity - music, art, dance, cooking etc.
Practicing belly dancing, tai chi or wu chi.
Taking time to reflect on and address your feelings - maybe through journaling or talking to a trusted friend.
