Like a bolt of lightning that starts in a centralized point and expands into several different branches, the three channels of the Heart Meridian flow outward from the heart to various points of the body.

Dahn Yoga & Health Centers, Inc., a national leader in health and wellness, continues to promote the benefits of holistic health with its Meridian of the Month series. Dahn Yoga exercises for May's meridian, the Heart Meridian, can help those diagnosed with heart disease, high blood pressure or elevated cholesterol levels. Other Dahn Yoga benefits include improved emotional health and reduced stress levels.
Considered the Emperor of all organs in Oriental Medicine, the heart is responsible for regulating circulation and supplying blood. However, it is also affected by our emotions and state of mind. Like a bolt of lightning that starts in a centralized point and expands into several different branches, the three channels of the Heart Meridian flow outward from the heart to various points of the body. Imbalances along these pathways can cause anxiety, sleep disturbances, and poor complexion.
There are a number of Dahn Yoga exercises that can protect the heart and help it function at its prime condition. A half-lotus forward bend relives tightness in the chest and allows one to breathe deep at full capacity. Additionally, whole body relaxation, which involves lying on the floor and taking part in various mental exercises in order to relieve tension, enhances blood circulation and contributes to the relief of hypertension, insomnia and other autonomic nervous system disorders.
Dahn Yoga understands the benefits of seeking medical advice and treatment for certain ailments, but also stresses the importance of balancing one's body and mind in order to remain truly healthy. Dahn Yoga classes and exercises allow individuals to help their Ki energy proportionately flow throughout their body by working the appropriate meridian channels.
