At Bodhifit Studio, we love to incorporate traditional Chinese meridian stretching into our classes. Not only does it help to improve our flexibility, it also helps our organs to function optimally.
As we sprint towards the end of Summer, Chinese medicine tells us that there are a couple of organs which tend to suffer most at this time of year – the stomach and the spleen. This is because we’re coming down from the summer high that usually includes a little extra food and alcohol (and who can blame us, it’s the perfect time of year for poolside parties and backyard barbeques!).
The stomach and spleen are the two primary organs for digestion. The spleen also plays a major in both the immune and lymph systems as it helps to...

Our skin is our largest organ. Every day it regenerates itself by shredding dead skin cells and every 28 days we have a new layer of skin.
