August News Letter-Hip Openers Moving us into the Sacred
This month we explore Hip Openers, a very popular class in the past and a several requests for more! Through out August we will use hip openers to connect us with the Sacral Chakra Energy Center. In sanskrit the Sacral Chakra is called Svadhisthana. This energy center is found at the lower abdomen. This energy center governs water in your body, pleasure and creation. The flow of life. From here we create, give and receive in life’s pleasures and flow with life’s offerings.
Svadhistana translates to “My Own Sweet Abode”. It represents the qualities of Well-being, sexuality, abundance and pleasure. Through dance, swimming or vinyasa flow & hip openers we can physically connect to the qualities of the Sacral Chakra. To connect spiritually, we can practice meditation, fasting and celibacy.
Just like the sound of AUM connects us with our Third Eye, the sound of VANG in the note of D can connect us to the Sacral Chakra. Making sure we have enough in all areas of our life is a Sacral Chakra theme. As we are enough as we are and who we are is enough. Making sure we have just enough food, rest, exercise and money, never over indulging.
From the age of 7 to 14 years, we begin to connect and resonate with this energy center. As it is the source of pleasure and creation. Learning about the things that are pleasurable to us and creating through art or self expression.
I look forward to seeing you all in class.
