The meridian is a concept used in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Meridians are channels for life-energy (Qi) to flow. Some modern scientists doubt the existence of meridians.
We say the sun moves from rising to setting even though actually the earth rotates and orbits around the sun. The orbits are for tracing and describe the movement of the sun and the earth and their relationship. Anyone who is looking for a physical track of the orbit is regarded as ignorant. Similarly, in Traditional Chinese Medicine, meridians are for tracing and describe the flow of life-energy and the relationship between energy and the physical body, and the relationship between organs. The physical existence of meridians cannot be found in the body as the orbits of the Earth cannot be seen in the sky.
Yin Yoga derives from the Tao, Traditional Chinese Medicine and Yoga. It is a style of Yoga that is used to connect and balance the external environment and the inner world of the Self. Practicing Yin Yoga helps us discover a lifestyle that allows our Self to flow with the rhythm of nature and find a natural way to maintain a happy, wholesome and holistic life for the long term.
