5 Seasons Qigong - Shropshire

5 Seasons Qigong - Shropshire

Live and practise qigong in harmony with the seasons.

Much of Chinese culture and philosophy is based on 5 seasons and their tradition also works with 5 elements. During each of the 5 Seasons of the year, we aim to bring you the best practices to support your physical, mental and emotional wellbeing for that seasonal phase. If you attend all the workshops, you will have learnt 5 beneficial sets of practices to help you integrate your lifestyle with the core energies of nature.

The benefits of these workshops apply to beginners and seasoned practitioners alike. If you are experienced in one of the exercises we are teaching, you will have the added benefit, with our guidance, of being able to delve more deeply into its components. Each session will also to allow you to integrate the seasonal theme into your daily practice, using whatever Tai Chi or Qigong form or exercise routine you may know - irrespective of its origin.

Transition and Integration: Late Summer into Autumn

We continue our popular series of 'immersion' weekend workshops that span the year and its seasons. This year we will present the Late Summer Qigong workshop uring our annual Tai Chi retreat at Eaton Manor in beautiful Shropshire.

The 'Chinese Element' predominant in Late Summer is 'Earth', which is also the element of transition for all of the season changes throughout the year. As such it is very valuable to use this time of year to find balance and centre in body, mind, emotions and spirit. To feel comfortable, nourished, stable and supported. In tai chi and qigong terms, and in everyday life, we would say that it is important 'to find and then maintain centre as you respond to changes that are affecting you.'

On Sunday we offer an in-depth workshop where you can deepen your study, as well as review and practice what we learn on the Saturday - see details. You do not have to attend this session but it is included in the price.

  • Allow your breath to penetrate the openness in your body that summer brings.
  • Find your centre to facilitate integration of what you have absorbed over the warm months.
  • Create balance through your physical, energetic and spiritual bodies for a healthier life.

Workshop content is largely dependent on the group dynamic and should only be used as a guide to what we may teach.

Suitable for all, including beginners.
