Where in the body exist the "engines" which keep us energetic and vital? How can we learn to preserve the vigor of these “engines”, prolonging the integrity of our powerful body and creative mind? According to Chinese Medicine’s “Meridian Theory”, the Heart is the “Minister” or “Master” of the body. By becoming attuned to the Heart, and the many ways in which it supports the health or distress of the entire organism, we may “keep the Minister happy”, and thus preserve health of the “kingdom” of other internal organs. How can yoga poses help us access this ancient Chinese concept of the “Shen” or Heart System. What does Chinese medicine say about the health of the Heart and it’s connection to our overall emotional health?
