The Asymmetrical Body
these organs are an example of a general observation about the structure of the body. our bodies are not symmetrical. the liver is on the right side, the spleen is toward the left, and the large intestine has a completely different flow on the left and the right side of the body. Sometimes we do things asymmetrically in the practice of Kundalini Yoga to create a particular effect within our asymmetrical design.
For example, in the Aquarian sadhana practice, we sit in Viraasana for 22 minutes. this posture is always done sitting on the left heel with the right knee up toward the chest. Sometimes people ask, “If we’re doing it for 22 minutes every day, wouldn’t you want to
do it on the other side sometimes?” the answer to that question is “no” because of the asymmetrical design of our bodies. Having the right knee up creates pressure on the liver and Liver meridian. the Liver plays a huge role in the digestive process, keeping the blood clean and the hormones balanced. the Liver also energetically stores anger. Always doing this posture with the right knee raised compresses this vital organ and creates a gentle and healthy way for people to clear out their anger.
