This energy center of svadisthana is responsible for personal creativity – what the individual offers to the world through the arts, work and procreation. It is also the human connection to inner Truth and knowing one's Self.
The subconscious mind governs svadisthana, which is associated with emotions that impact relationships – sensuality, self-acceptance and intimacy. This chakra governs how the individual relates to others and what such relationships mean to them.
The color associated with svadisthana is orange, which is a combination of yellow (happiness) and red (energy). The symbol of this chakra is a lotus flower with six orange petals and a crescent moon.
Yoga asanas that stimulate svadisthana include bhujangasana (cobra pose), natarajasana (dancer’s pose), parivrtta trikonasana (revolved triangle pose) and utthita parsvakonasana (extended side angle pose).
