The Five Elements

We’ve all seen pictures of people practising taiji and qigong in Chinese parks. These exercises are often prescribed by doctors instead of drugs as part of a health regime. By gently stimulating the acupuncture points on the meridians they bring harmony to the body and mind, improve calmness and resilience as well as balance and coordination.

The Chinese see everything as a matter of balance between the Five Elements, earth, water, metal, fire and wood, which are linked to the five organs of the body. There is a little theory in this introduction, which will go a long way!

Our next workshop on 23rd March will be held at Portavadie Leisure and Spa with Di Oliver of Woodland Elements. We will look in full at the energies of the 5 elements and examine how we can use them. There are options to join us for lunch and a dip in the pool.

Suitable for Beginners.
