Sacral Chakra healing for Pelvic Pain

Welcome to part 2 of the Chakra Healing for Pelvic Pain series. If you missed the first part, check it out here.

Today we are moving on to the second chakra, the Sacral Chakra. This is also one of the two chakras that is most associated with the pelvic bowl, and any sort of pelvic issues we may have. It is also one of those chakras that people are most excited about - because *hip openers*.

The Sacral Chakra is located in the lower abdomen, it is also known to be located in your womb space, but it doesn't matter if you have a womb or not, this chakra is just as important to keep open and active.

Your Sacral Chakra: Orange Sensuality Sexuality Empathy Emotions Pleasure Joy Abundance Creativity Physical part: pelvis, low back, low abdomen, kidney, spleen, sexual organs

Let's get those hips moving!

In the Pelvic Health Yoga classes, or any yoga class that I teach, I talk a lot about using the breath to create space in your pelvis. Start to envision that your breath is a big part of keeping open and clear chakras - breathe straight into it.

If your Sacral Chakra is blocked it can affect your pelvic bowl in a range of different ways, I think many of us reading this has had some experience with this.

A blocked Sacral Chakra can also affect how you feel in your sensual being, it can hinder you from experience joy and pleasure. And when I talk about pleasure, I talk about it in all forms, not just sexually. Do you still feel pleasure when someone's just touching your hand? Or when you're eating a piece of chocolate? Or do you feel numb to the experience?

If you've ever gone to a yoga class you've probably heard the yoga teacher talking about how we often store emotions in our pelvis, things we don't want to deal with. That's why when we sometimes practice hip openers we can get this deep release and we start to cry - which is completely normal!

What can you do to activate/balance/open your Sacral Chakra?

  • Take a bath, go for a swim - the element of this chakra is water

  • Dance

  • Yoni Mudra - create a triangle with your hands and place them on your lower abdomen

  • Pair it with breathing into the Sacral area

  • Use sensual essential oils: Rose Ylang Ylang

  • Massage lower abdomen

  • Practice hip openers: Butterfly pose Deep Yogi Squat Hip circles


I am worthy of joy and pleasure.

Is there anything else that you can think of that you can do to activate your Root Chakra? Comment down below!

Lots of love, Penny

I acknowledge that I am not a doctor, and this post is not supported by scientific research. I work from a holistic perspective and I like to work with the energies in my entire being. I share my way of working with my condition, and my students condition/s, in hope that it will inspire you to look further than just the physical part. Take what resonates, leave the rest.
