#chakratalk day 5 - pigeon pose for the sacral chakra.
Balance is key for this chakra to function. Knowing when to hold on and when to let go. Sthira and Sukha. Effort and ease. Balancing work and play, exercise and rest. It’s important to take care of ourselves and take time to allow this second chakra to rejuvenate and replenish itself, or it will drain all other chakras in an attempt to do so.
Practice both variations of pigeon. The top is a more active, proud pigeon.
front leg is bent
shin parallel to top of mat
back toes tucked under
keep hips square to top of mat
stay lifted toning your glutes
add little pulses, one inch up and down. about ten
then ease yourself forward into sleeping pigeon. stay here for a minute or two.
balancing effort and ease
This chakra is the birthplace of creativity. Artistic creativity but also a less obvious type of creativity. The creativity that comes up when we set our intentions, where we imagine and manifest all the things that we want in our lives. This creativity can help us to flow - like water - in the face of challenge and change.
Sacral chakra is stoked by pleasure and joy. Our sense of deservedness around pleasure and joy is deep rooted in the unconscious realm. Our attitudes about our self determine our relationship to this second chakra. If we believe that we have a right to the life that we want and give ourselves permission to be joyful and experience pleasure, this chakra will be more balanced.
