Learn about the Emotional & Energetic Benefits of each of the Yin Yoga Asanas
One of our favourite YIN shapes! This pose creates such a deep release through the kidney and liver meridian lines of the inner thigh, and the urinary bladder meridian line running down the back side of the central axis of our body the spine
The ultimate pose to create energy, calmness, release any lingering fears, while we build a sense of grounding and stability. It also helps us to recharge and renourish ourselves when our energy levels start to run low and we need a lift! The kidneys are the organ that will help us to keep going and going, as they function like a back up power reserve for us. However, we are not superhuman so eventually that reserve comes ‘unexpectedly’ crashing down, in the form of fatigue, sickness, worry. All of which results in our bodies being forced to slow down so that we finally notice that we need to take care of ourselves!
In the Chinese Medicine world we believe that when the kidneys are in good health so are the rest of the organs. They are our storage site for our personal power and chi. For the pregnant woman or women who are menstruating it is believed that we are naturally depleting our kidney chi during this time, so it is vital that we spend time in shapes like butterfly to ‘recharge’ our energy. It is also believed that the kidney chi of the mother is passed down to the child, so ensuring that your own chi is strong will secure the health of your future children
