Yin Yoga for Small Intestine
This 30 minute yin yoga class for your fire element and small intestine meridian will pull and pressurize the tissues of your upper back, shoulder and neck supporting you in clearing your mind. By pulling and pressurizing the deep tissues of your upper back, shoulders and neck you will be stimulating the flow of chi along the energy pathways of your small intestine meridian which will leave you with a clear mind.
Your small intestine meridian starts at the outside of your baby finger and runs up the outside of your forearm to the back of your shoulder, the back of your neck. One branch runs internally through your heart, through our stomach and to your small intestine. Another branch runs externally across your neck, to your cheek, to th router corner of your eye and then enters your ear. There is a third short branch which runs to the inner corner of your eye which connects with the bladder meridian.
Qi stagnation is causes pain. In terms of pain in your upper back neck and shoulders we can look to your small intestine meridian channel. Biologically your small intestine meridian is responsible for breaking down your food and absorbing its nutrients. From the traditional chinese medicine perspective, your small intestine meridian system supports you in breaking down your experiences, relationships, thoughts, and emotions.
This yin yoga class will support you in taking a small step back to reflect on the root causes of anxiety, insomnia, and circular thoughts by making sure that we are not overfeeding ourselves or feeding ourselves the wrong things – physically, mentally, emotionally, energetically, spiritually.
