The focus of Meridian exercises/stretches is unique for most people. For example, in most exercise regimens, the emphasis is placed on getting the form right and working on specific muscles, tendons, and joints. The exerciser’s attention then naturally becomes focused on just those body parts involved, since all the movements are made willfully. Meridian-imagery exercises/stretches also require the individual to exert conscious control to get the body into each position. Once the position is reached, however, the primary objective is to let go and experience and observe what is going on in the body. Meridian exercises are not about copying the outward form of the exercises, and they should not be viewed or done as a way of stretching and limbering muscles and joints. Instead, the exercises should be performed and experienced as an act of extending or expanding the energy within the exerciser.
