#YouTubeTuesday: Spring Yoga—20 Poses for the Liver & Gall Bladder Meridians

Spring or Kapha season is here and it's time to "spring clean" your body and get it ready for the season.

The poses demonstrated in the below video are intended to bring balance to your body and life during the spring season, so you can function with greater ease.

According to the video, these yoga poses activate the energy channels of the liver and gall bladder. When these organs become balanced it provides us with the ability to change like the seasons. In addition, in spring, the element of wood is strongest, so activating the meridians (energy channels) of the liver and gallbladder brings balance to these organs. Liver imbalances can cause anger, frustration, an inability to adapt to change or plan for the future.

Gall Bladder imbalance can cause symptoms like dry skin, peeling on the soles of the feet, brittle nails (due to trouble utilising calcium), constipation, excessive burping and bloating.The main emotional patterns are bitterness, cynicism and anger. 

Poses: gate pose, runner's lunge, pigeon, Janu Sirsasana (variations), butterfly
