About the Events
Late summer is on the way. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, late summer has it's own place in the scheme of the five elements. It is end of summer- where the birds are finished raising their young, the crops are beginning to be harvested, life is settling down, and we move into a grace period before autumn arrives. It is a time to renew, nourish our spleen qi and digestion, revitalize, ground and enjoy life.
The ancients knew that balancing our energies were an important way to ease the transition from summer to fall. This need to balance our energies is not only important at at cellular level but also in our daily lives.
Qigong addresses these moments of transition with Earth Element exercises and movements. We can then slow down, take a breath, ground, stabilize, revitalize, and integrate before we take our next steps.
Come join me in this beautiful Late Summer Earth Element Flow for healing. This gentle practice can be done seated or standing and can be modified in any way you need. We'll start with a short version of the Daily Energy Routine to get our energies moving, as well as several Qigong exercises to help wake up our energies. Then we'll slip into a beautiful Late Summer Earth Element Qigong flow to soothe, nourish, tone up our digestive tract, stabilize, and ground.
We'll finish off class with savasana-whether you choose to stay seated or make your way to the mat or coach. Either way, your energy will be shifted in deep and rich ways, and you'll feel ready for the change of season and more capable of handling transition in general.
No Qigong experience necessary. It is suggested to attend all 3 classes so that you become familiar with the flow and can eventually practice it on your own anytime you find yourself needing balance. However, even one class will give you a lot! Each class will be recorded and sent to all participants.
