sleeping yogi

*if you keep waking up at a certain time in the night, it may be connected to some disturbance in the meridians. in chinese medicine there is a body clock, where two-hour time periods are connected to specific meridians. the ones that are most likely connected to sleep disturbances are:

GALLBLADDER: 11 pm-1 am // LIVER: 1-3 am // LUNG 3-5am // LARGE INTESTINE 5-7 am
