Yoga for enhancing creativity

The chakra known as ‘Swadishtan chakra’ is the creative center for the entire chakra system. Its vibrations enhance the creative energy circulating throughout the body. It manifests as a free flowing pattern of energy that gives physical pleasure.

‘Swadishtan’ means home of the self. ‘Swa’ means self, and ‘dhistan’ means one’s own abode, thus meaning home of the self. The location of the Swadisthan chakra is in the region of the genitals.

This chakra generates creativity, sexuality and pleasure. Sexual energy is a very powerful driving force in human life. It is governed by this chakra. This energy has the potential to raise kundalini energy through other chakras. This is used in Tantric practices to raise kundalini energy to crown chakra. For that one needs to balance Swadisthan chakra. The element of this chakra is water, which makes roughly 70% of body weight. This chakra also controls sense of taste too.Reproduction is affected by the energy in this chakra and a balanced and vibrant Swadisthan chakra is very important to correct fertility. Though there are many yogic interventions to balance this chakra and one of them is Pelvic rock or tilt.


  • Lie down on floor on the back
  • Bend the knees with feet on the ground
  • Now rock your pelvis up and down with breath and while exhaling bring it down to floor
  • Do twenty rounds or more of this tilt  depending on your capacity


  • Balances and invigorate Swadishtan Chakra
  • Strengthens the back
  • Relieves lower back aches
  • Strengthen abdominal muscles
  • Makes hips more strong
  • Increases sense of pleasures in life
