Is this a good idea? I am planning to lead ...

Yin for yang organs

I'm working on a class themed around fall. Lungs are yin. Large intestine is yang. I found some new and different poses for targeting the large intestine meridian, but stretching in a yin way (i.e., held for 2-3 minutes). I was taught that stressing yang tissues in a yin way (and vice versa) is unsa...
