If we look closely at this chart of Meridians we see channels of energy or chi moving through the body. These channels are the exactly same on both sides of the body and each channel correlates to a vital organ .
What excites me is that we don’t need to do a lot of difficult yoga. Just a few easy yin yoga postures can activate all of our meridians leaving us feeling amazing.
HOW IT WORKS..This very restful yin yoga posture> left < called Sukasana aka easy pose (supported with chair) is activating a few really important meridians.
