Yin Yoga Meridians

Supported Half-Frog MYOYIN Pose with Half Closed Wing Pose.
This MYOYIN Supported Half-Frog pose has the ball placed between the block & the inner thigh, where our liver meridian lies – an excellent posture for the Wood element & emotion of anger.
I’m showing a variation that includes a half-closed wing position to simultaneously stress the back of the shoulder & arm – in this variation we also target both the Large & Small Intestine meridians (the yang meridians paired with the Lungs & Heart Yin meridians) – associated with the Metal/Fire elements & the emotions of sadness & stress.
Why work more than one meridian/element?
It is pretty normal to feel several emotions at the same time right?
EG, anger & sadness have a tendency to co-exist & can feed into each other. This is just like the elements they too have interconnections & perform both supportive & controlling roles.
The liver meridian assures the flow of chi & blood. It has an internal branch that comes from the liver organ that connects with the lungs. It is the lungs’ job to regulate our chi throughout the body.
Maybe we also feel stressed by these emotions. It’s actually your Heart that FEELS all emotions.
Working with different meridians/elements &/or their paired meridians can support us in bringing balance to the INTERCONNECTED chi flow system we hold.
