Each element in Chinese Medicine is linked to the organs they support. Spring is the season for renewed growth and is the time to stretch our tendons, clean our liver, clean our gal bladder, and release lingering anger. The liver controls muscles and tendons, so if you have tight joints or recurring joint problems this could mean an over-stressed liver.

Poses to tonify the liver and gall bladder include inversions, back bends, twists and forward bends. 

The following yoga poses are from the Yoga Journal, focusing on on poses that specifically benefit the liver.
