In tonight's class we will work with the throat chakra and the sex chakra: visuddhi and svadhisthana. Visuddhi means "especially pure" and svadhisthana means "where your being is established".
Svadhisthana awareness develops at the same time, as babies, as when we begin moving and growing the capacity to do anything other than simply lie on our backs. At this time we become aware of the motivation to move, roll over, come up on all fours, and finally stand up on two feet, consistently exposing our vulnerable under-bellies, something no other animal does.
Standing is the truest expression of the forming Self, facing the world and our future with everything from our forward-pointing toes to our exposed throats. At the same time, we begin learning to communicate and finally to speak, with visuddhi powered by our especially pure hearts, shining forth into the world that surrounds us.
The human creature has evolved from horizontal stability and secure connection with the earth, to vertical instability and an unfixed relation to ground. In this evolution we have become highly responsive and creative.
Tonight in class we'll move these regions in the body, exploring our beauty and grace, and what makes us unique amongst the species on this planet, with our entirely exposed frontal bodies constantly interfacing with the power to change the environment we live in.
