Yin Yoga Sequence: Meridian Yoga - 5 Elements of Yoga
As per the ancient Chinese agrarian society, the Yin and Yang and the 5 Elements were fundamentally related to the natural science (the seasons and the human body). Every human body has channels that need to be kept free of blockages in order to allow for the free flow of prana (energy/life force) to lead a healthy life. These channels are called meridians and in Yin Yang Style they are referred to as Qi. It is believed, where there is Yin (energy flow up the body), there is Yang (energy flow down the body).
The yin yoga sequence here follows the movements of the energy through the various channels as each yoga pose represents a particular element (water, wood, fire, metal, and earth). Each of these elements have a direct relation to the organs in the human body. These are explained below:
Bladder (yin) - Kidney (yang) - Water Element
Gall Bladder (yin) - Liver (yang) - Wood Element
Heart (yin) - Small Intestine (yang) - Fire Element
Lungs (yin) - Large Intestine (yang) - Metal Element
Stomach (yin) - Spleen (yang) - Earth Element
As these channels are related to the human body it is sometimes termed as Five Elements of the Meridian System
