Rejuvenate: A Five Element Qi Gong Exploration with Wesley Salter

Mar 4, 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

The Five Element flow is an in-body mindfulness practice that enables us to guide and direct energy to specific organs within the body bringing a balance & harmony to the five elements within us.

Metal • Water • Wood • Fire • Earth

Qi Gong, often referred to as ‘Taoist Yoga’ or ‘Relaxed Standing Yin Yoga’, is a powerful ancient Chinese practice based on the premise that the human body is an energy system.  Qi Gong practitioners mirror the movement of nature to awaken the flow of Qi [Life Force/Prana]. This unique practice is composed of tension-releasing stretches, graceful moving meditations and nature-inspired standing postures, all harmonized with balanced breathing and a present, clear mind. The intention of the practice is to cultivate clean, fresh, flowing BIG Qi and to promote a long healthy life.

We are all part of the Five Element Cycle and each of these elements is illuminated within us. Each one connects to an internal organ [Metal/Lungs-Water/Kidneys-Wood/Liver-Fire/Heart-Earth/Spleen] + a body system, and both positive & negative emotions.  The Five Element practice is a classic Taoist method for cleansing, elevating, balancing & circulating fresh Qi through these five major yin organs of the body.  Breathe deeply, raise your energetic vibration and empower a direct connection to the universe & nature, by tapping into your ‘life-force’ potential.
