WATER - an elemental Qigong workshop (1 Dec 19)

Water is our deep potential to develop and change. It is essential to life, and in a very real sense we are water. When the Water Element is healthy it can affect the whole balance of yin and yang forces in the body and bring about deep vitality. Water is fluidity and flow, and these aspects, as well as its connection with the Kidney and Bladder organs and meridians, will be explored in both moving and static forms.

These forms will include some inspired by the Bear, the animal associated with Water in the Five Elements system.

The day will be gently paced and will be perfectly suitable for the beginner.
