Your Sacred Sacrum
The Sacral Chakra has been considered sacred as far back in history as the ancient Egyptian civilization. Energetically our Sacral Chakra, or Svadhisthana in Sanskrit, thrives in the area our hips. This orange sphere of energy is our center for creativity, pleasure, passion. Think reproduction and creativity physically, emotionally and mentally, a truly sacred center.
Anatomically, the back region of the hips contains our sacrum, a large triangular bone connecting the base of the spine between the tailbone and the last lumbar vertebrae. By about 30 years of age there are 5 fused vertebrae (S1-S5) that form the sacrum, important for support, protection and structure. It joins our hips together at the sacroiliac (SI) joints for movement. Key muscles of the hip joints pull on the sacrum to move our legs. It surrounds and protects our lower spinal nerves and is central in the pelvic cavity supporting and protecting organs of the abdominopelvic cavity. So, I would certainly say it is quite sacred to our form, support, protection and reproduction.
Yoga asanas, postures keep us flexible to move, maintain and strengthen our muscles, bones, joints, the kidneys, bladder and reproductive organs. Movement enhances blood flow in our hips, lower abdomen, and back and helps us eliminate toxins and waste. Healthy hips allow us to find comfort in our whole body. Pranayama, breath work fuels and circulates prana, vital life force energy. Any physical or energetic blockages will challenge and stagnate the function of the whole body as the sacral area is a powerful link.
