Here are some simple depictions of the subtle channels known as the nadis through which the life force (prana) circulates. On the left, the ida, pingala and the shushumna are considered the most important. On the right, the entire network of nadis extend way beyond the confines of the physical body. You can see the sun and the moon, which have their counterparts within each embodiment. You can also see the chakras.

strengthened the immune system,

supported liver function,

and promoted ease and freedom in the chest,

upper back and lungs,

and shoulders.
