Demystifying Meridians

Come take a journey through the energy highways of the body, discovering an intricate web that is woven through the myofascial system. We will liberate the meridians from a metaphysical concept as we dissect the classic and contemporary thoughts to arrive at a demystified and digestible understanding of meridian theory. We will then feel the meridians with our own hands, before melting into a juicy Yin class to embody this subtle anatomy in our physical practice.
