welcome to DIY YOGA 4: The Bowl of the Pelvis
In the coming weeks, I will be adding to this page, but I wanted to remind you of some basic ideas from our last meeting.
“THE PELVIS IS EVERYTHING” Judith Hanson Lasater
As we work with the pelvis we are working with a number of ideas
The first chakra in the pelvic floor (muladara) governing our basic sense of grounding and presence, a sense of safety, stability (stay-ability), connection to the earth. This is the root of the body, the home of the apana (downward flow of energy)
The second chakra in the center of the pelvic bowl, between the pubic bone and the navel, governing our emotions, the spring of our creativity, our sexuality, our ability to “flow”
The pelvis is the where our center of gravity is located, so it’s a key for our sense of balance.
The pelvis is the pot from which the spine rises up, so everything above rests on the well-being of the pelvis (it’s alignment as well as the functioning of the first and second chakra energies)
