Spring Liver and Gallbladder Sequence

Practice Type: 
Practice Level: 
Yoga Style: 
 
 

The spring season invites us to explore our Liver and Gallbladder meridians on the inner and outer thighs. Consider poses which extend and stretch these areas of the body. On this cold and rainy spring day, I chose more of a restorative practice incorporating Forward Bends and Inversions, but another sequence may include more standing and seated twists. Enjoy.
