Summer Yoga: 20 Poses for the Heart and Small Intestine Meridians (Yoga for the Seasons)

This book, Summer Yoga: 20 Poses for Heart and Small Intestine Meridians is informative & made into an easy to follow yoga class with concise instructions. Each yoga pose also has an image so you can practice with confidence, knowing that you are in correct alignment in each pose.

These yoga poses activate the energy channels of the heart, pericardium, triple heater and small intestine. When these organs become balanced it provides us with endless expressions of power, strength, joy, love and compassion.

According to the Chinese Five Element theory, the body is made up of the same five primary elements that exist in nature – Wood, Fire, Metal, Earth and Water. Each of these elements links to different organs, and affects us physically and psychologically.

In summer the fire element is strongest, so activating the meridians (energy channels) of the heart, pericardium, triple heater and small intestine brings balance to these organs.

Heart imbalance can cause symptoms like, sadness, absence of laughter, depression, shortness of breath, palpitations, inability to speak, memory failure, insomnia & anxiety. Small intestine imbalance can cause symptoms like, profuse sweating, tinnitus, poor mental assimilation, inability to assimilate ideas, insecurity, feeling of being lost, and vulnerable.It doesn’t sound very pleasant does it?

Spirit Yoga classes mostly use traditional yoga poses and some yoga therapy exercises that are based on bringing energy (chi or prana) to the meridian channels located through-out the body. Summer Yoga will bring balance to your body and life during the Summer Season, so you can function with greater ease.Imagine waking each morning feeling revived and ready to head out into the world to inspire others with your confidence, love and laughter.
