Dahn Yoga & Health Centers, Inc., a national leader in health and wellness, continues to promote the understanding of holistic health with its Meridian of the Month series. Dahn Yoga exercises for April’s meridian, the Spleen Meridian, can help with immune support, digestion and release of tension. Other Dahn Yoga benefits include improved emotional health and resilience.
Otherwise known as the “Inner Mother” for the nurturing and bonding it provides the body, the spleen functions as part of the immune system, contributing to the production and storage of blood cells and creation of Ki. The Spleen Meridian is also a digestive meridian and is very sensitive to stress and intake of food. Imbalances or blockages in the Spleen Meridian can cause frequent diarrhea, menstrual disorders, and poor memory and concentration.
There are many Dahn Yoga exercises that one can do to nurture the “Inner Mother.” Leg squats will help to move energy along the Spleen Meridian. Another way to help release tension and any blockage along the meridian is to lie flat on your back, raise your legs to 90 degrees, hold the position and breathe. Dahn Yoga benefits practitioners of these exercises with improved circulation and body awareness. The release of tension associated with these exercises contributes to resilience and emotional stability.
Dahn Yoga does not overlook the benefits of conventional treatment for physical ailments, but recognizes that better health also requires attention to thoughts and emotions and their effect on the body. Dahn Yoga health principles promote an integrated understanding of the meridian system and the flow of Ki through the body.
