This workshop will focus on Chinese five-element theory. According to traditional Chinese medicine and philosophy, all matter is made up of five elements: fire, earth, metal / air (they're considered the same element), water, and wood. These five elements work together in a constructive cycle, pictured below.
At the workshop I'll be introducing six exercises (one to align the body systems, and one for each element) and teaching qigong standing meditation. By the end of the afternoon, you'll have a short routine that you can use to refresh your energy or stretch and relax tight muscles any time you need. I'll be showing you how to make each of the movements more or less challenging to your muscles, and how to adapt the routine to fit the amount of time you have.
The fee for this workshop is $60.
