Qigong is an ancient Asian system of health and self-development. Its slow, circular, repetitive movements invoke a sense of inner peace and relaxation. The practice involves meditation and movement, which develops internal calm and brings the body into greater harmony.

The ancient Chinese scholars believed that the universe consists of five basic elements—metal, water, wood, fire, and earth. Five Element Qigong works with these elements and what they correlate to within our bodies.

Join teacher Matthew Cohen, E-RYT 500, the only representative in the United States with the blessing of master Liu Xuyang to teach this style of qigong. You will learn:

  • The Five Element Qigong practice, which is done in alternating intervals of standing poses and walking meditation
  • How to transition smoothly and seamlessly, from the sacred to everyday activities
  • Proper alignment and use of the Taoist “natural breath.”

There will be plenty of time to answer questions and grow in this practice together. By the end of the weekend, you will have a complete practice to take home and continue on your own.
