The gallbladder channel runs along the side body and in traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) the gallbladder (which is a yang organ) is paired with its yin partner, the liver. Together, these influence our capacity to make decisions, to move forward and act with precision and power.
When the gallbladder/liver is imbalanced, there may be a sense of futility and frustration. Balancing the energy within the gallbladder and liver channels helps us to feel at peace with the way things actually are. This short video has a yoga pose that, while intense, is a great way to move stagnant energy and awaken the gallbladder channel.
