In our latest live yoga class we went poolside moving through the water element chakra, Svadhisthana. Svadhisthana is the second chakra and lies in the area of the pubic bone.

In order to help balance this chakra the first chakra has to be balanced, as it is the base for all of the seven chakras. This practice will combine the flowing hip openers of second chakra with the foundational grounding poses of the first chakra.
The Svadhisthana chakra is related to our creativity, and sexuality.
When the Svadhisthana Chakra is not balanced we may experience a lack of inspiration, and glom onto our vices or addictions.
Moving through the hips can help us unlock pent up emotion and creativity. Maybe there is a book you have wanted to start writing, or a room you want to rearrange.
Svadhisthana will invite the inspiration to flow through you!
Combined with balancing poses, this practice will help you feel secure to explore your creativity and self expression.
Props will be very useful in this practice.
Have a yoga block handy for our half moon pose.
While the hips are open we take a chance in the challenging crow pose. This is a great spot to really listen and tune into the body.
