Second Chakra-Svadhisthana

The second chakra is located just above the base of the spine around the reproductive organs. This energy center has to do with creativity, specifically around the creation of life. Orange is the color of the 2nd Chakra.

The second chakra builds upon the survival instincts of the 1st chakra, by Desire. The desire to pass along our genetic blue print and produce off spring.

Benefits of a Balanced 2nd Chakra:
Proper flow of energy through reproductive organs
Healthy sex life
Ability to properly focus creative energy

Once one has properly balanced the sacral center they are able to transmute the creative energies of the second chakra into the higher centers and express the divine creativity from within.

Yoga to balance the 2nd chakra:
Cobra
Boat
Seated forward bend
Supine bound angle
Dog
Pranayama: Dirga and Kapalabhati
Mudra: YoniMantra:
VamBandha: Uddiyana Bandha

Have you thought of offering a yoga class that looks at a chakra each week? :-)

Good idea as I've been working the chakras into the beginner class and focsued on elements in the other classes (and I need to leave the elements behind for awhile!)
