Qigong Workshop 5 Element Qi Gong (Same session repeated both days)
2:45pm – 3:45pm – Qigong Graceful Movement
In this session we will explore the 5 Element Qi Gong system: five dynamic, powerful animal forms which work to heal and bring balance to the internal organs and meridians of the body. An ancient martial art and component of Traditional Chinese Medicine, Qi Gong works by squeezing toxins and emotions out of the organs, purifying the Qi, leaving you feeling peaceful and relaxed yet powerful and focused.
Qi Gong is suitable for absolute beginners or experienced martial artists and everyone in between. The synchronised breath and slow movements will help you to harmonise your physical and energetic bodies.
Please wear loose, comfortable clothing to allow for freedom of movement.
