Qigong: 5 elements (Wu Xing)
Qigong is a moving meditation, a dance with energy known as Qi (called prana in yoga). Qigong is similar to Tai Chi but simpler and easier to learn. Each graceful and effortless movement is synchronised with an easy flowing Breath of Silk to focus and calm your mind.
The movements in Qigong are designed to mobilise your joints, release tension from your muscles and promote mental, emotional and energetic balance. Qigong sequences are intended to be "learned by heart," giving you the freedom to practice anytime and anywhere with friends, colleagues or alone in the heart of nature.
Each of the five movements (Wu Xing) of this sequence are synchronised with the Breath of Silk to focus and calm the mind. Each of the five movements relates to one of the Chinese elements: wood, fire, earth, metal and water. The moving meditation of the wood element brings balance to the liver, the fire element calms the heart, the earth element cultivates joy, the metal element cleanses the lungs, and the water element promotes balanced energy levels in our body and mind. Qigong sequences are designed to be "learned by heart," giving you the freedom to practice anytime, anywhere, with friends, family or colleagues, or on your won in the heart of nature.
