Qigong, Breathwork, and Meditation Class

22 March @ 9:30 am - 10:30 am

Springtime in the woods

Come celebrate the Spring Solstice with a special Qigong/Breathwork/Meditation class with moves that honour the coming of the new season, and the related element of wood.

I have designed a special class which will leave you feeling refreshed, rejuvenated, and also relaxed. In Chinese Medicine, Spring is the season of the Wood element, the time of planting seeds, beginnings, and new growth and the warming up from complete Yin-cold to Yang-hot (i.e. from Water to Fire). It is everything that grows, expands, enriches, warms and multiplies.The organs that are associated with the Wood element are the liver and the gallbladder. The connected colour is green. This is believed to be a hugely pivotal time of change.

Stay after class for tea, healthy treats (included) and a chat!

Class description:

Class is 50-60 minutes and comprise:

  •  Qigong-style warm up and exercises (standing and seated options will be taught)
  •  Seated breathing exercises
