here’s the third and final installment of the ‘yoga for the meridians’ series. hope you’ve enjoyed them! for more information about these, feel free to post questions, or take one of my acuyoga workshops. the next one is coming up in the fall.
Pericardium Meridian 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM // Triple Warmer Meridian 9:00 PM – 11:00 PMThis meridian pair acts as both the guard and regulator of the body – keeping things in balance and protecting the qi. Coming at a time of the day when we are often with friends and loved ones, these meridians also are deeply connected with our sense of community, trust and intimacy. Closely related to the heart and small intestine meridians, many of the signs of imbalance are similar. Emotional manifestations include: anxiety, inappropriate laughter, emotional and mental disturbances, discordant relationships, inability to connect with others and confusion. Physical manifestations include: arthritis (especially upper body), deafness, toothache, inflammation, fever, chilled, blurry vision, and headaches.Gall Bladder Meridian 11:00 PM – 1:00 AM // Liver Meridian 1:00 AM – 3:00 AMMuch like their anatomical functions, the gall bladder and liver are connected to clearing out and converting what’s brought into the body into something useful. These are the ‘planners’ of the meridian system – providing a course for the qi to flow. Emotional manifestations include: indecision, excessive or repressed anger, frustration, irritability, and judgmental nature. Physical manifestations include: tight shoulders/upper back, eye problems, stiff muscles, jaw problems, sciatica, frequent sighing, allergies, soft/cracked nails, and nausea.
