Svadhisthana: 11 Weeks of Exploring the Sacral Chakra through Kundalini Yoga with Satpal Kaur at The Portland Yoga Project, Portland, ME
Tuesdays 9am-10:30am beginning September 10th Wednesdays 6:45pm-8:15pm beginning September 11th
The Sacral Chakra, named Svadhisthana, means “one’s own dwelling place” and sweetness. This dual definition gives us a glimpse at the power and potential found in claiming our bodies as both a source of comfort and an abundant well of creativity. Our mental impressions, experiences, and unconscious personality dwell in this power center. The element of water rules this energetic center and the aspects of flow, change, sexuality, and creativity. The challenging emotions that can be overly-expressed through an out-of-balance Svadhisthana are guilt, body shame, jealousy, and possessiveness, as well as the struggle to move beyond shallow relationships. While these emotions and experiences are completely normal, a strong and balanced Sacral Chakra allows us to break through unconscious blocks, express our most authentic thoughts and feelings, and empathize easily for ourselves and others. Also, generosity, flexibility, genuine intimacy, healthy relationships, a sense of feeling at home in our bodies, and a passion for life and the sweetness available to us in each moment. Join Satpal Kaur for this 11 week series exploring the many kriyas, meditations, and asanas Yogi Bhajan shared to strengthen our relationship to and the energy of the second chakra. Slow down, tune in, and discover the sweetness of this center of energy and practice feeling at home in your beautiful body.
