Because this vital organ is responsible for ridding the body of toxins, a weak Bladder Meridian can result in incontinence, anxiety and even reproductive issues.

Dahn Yoga & Health Centers, Inc., a national leader in health and wellness, continues to promote the benefits of balancing the body and mind with its Meridian of the Month series. Dahn Yoga exercises for July's meridian, the Bladder Meridian, can help those who may be suffering from a number of ailments including discomfort in the eyes and neck, lower back pain and loss of bladder control.
The longest of the twelve meridians, the Bladder Meridian starts at the corner of the eyes and extends all throughout the body, passing by the sides of the spine and eventually ending in the toes. With such a lengthy path, it's should come as no surprise that it features sixty-seven points - more than any other meridian. Because this vital organ is responsible for ridding the body of toxins, a weak Bladder Meridian can result in incontinence, anxiety and even reproductive issues.
There are a number of Dahn Yoga exercises that work this meridian channel and inevitably allow the bladder to function at its highest capacity. Stretching the legs forward and alternately shaking each limb is one such example. Additionally, the cobra pose, which involves lying on the stomach and lifting the upper body with one's arms remaining on the floor, works to stimulate Water energy circulation along this important pathway.
Dahn Yoga understands the benefits of seeking medical advice and treatment for certain ailments, but also emphasizes the importance of holistic health and understanding the effect our emotional and physical states have on one another. Working the appropriate meridian channels and taking part in Dahn Yoga classes will likely allow individuals help evenly distribute their Ki energy and balance their bodies and minds.
