Spring Yin & Yang Organs

The pair of organs associated with the Spring (Wood) season are the Liver and Gallbladder.

The Liver (yin) is the body’s main organ of detoxification and is very important in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), being described as ‘the General’. Energetically the Liver is in charge of the smooth flow of Qi (energy) through the body, which allows us to create and execute change and is the organ most effected by excess stress. The Gallbladder (yang), stores bile and energetically, is associated with our ability to follow our own path without being put off by outside influences, and to recover from any obstructions that might come our way.

The emotion connected to the Liver is anger, and so a few ways imbalanced Liver Qi may manifest are as irritation, frustration, mood swings, aggression, under assertiveness, headaches, menstrual cramps and difficulty in adapting to change. When Liver/Gallbladder Qi is balanced, we can feel a greater sense of discernment, emotional calm and empathy. We are more able to see our path ahead clearly without feeling weighed down by day-to-day stresses and to be proactive in creating positive growth and expansion in our lives.

Feedback for my previous Seasonal Yin & Yoga Nidra Workshops:

“Thank you so much for the Nurture & Nourish yoga session today. As a perimenopausal woman close to burnout with some full on events concerning my son’s health I can honestly say that I joined the session feeling so jangled and desperate to get out of fight and flight, and left the session feeling totally calm and restored. I feel like I’m me again.” – Frithe
