Five Element Qigong Workshop

  • Synergy Yoga Wellness (map)

Qigong is a slow flowing style of exercise from China. Like Yoga, the tradition of Qigong runs deep. It is an ancient practice that is based upon the principles of the Five Elements of Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture. Thus, Qigong is both a therapy and a science that weaves together life force (Qi and breath) with movement and intention to promote healing.

Each of the Five Elements becomes active at a certain time of year, is associated with specific organs in the body, and has its own unique qualities. In a healthy person, the Five Elements work in sync with each other. Disease can occur when one or more of the elements become weak or excessive which can cause an imbalance in the other elements. Practicing Qigong exercises based on Chinese medical principles promotes balance between the Five Elements and brings peace and healing into our lives.  

In this workshop, you will be introduced to the Five Elements and practice a variety of Qigong choreographed movement forms to cultivate energy and support good health. You will also learn about the attributes of the Five Elements and discover which of the elements is most dominant in your own life. When you practice Qigong, you take health into your own hands, and restore harmony naturally.
