FULL AUTUMN LIVING:
QiGong and TCM for the season change!
Great relaxation practices for your daily life, together with a wealth of useful info
that will help you surf the season change, feeling peaceful and energized.
In this 90-minute workshop, we will explore how Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) considers that following the natural rhythms of the seasons is essential for good health, both physically and emotionally. Each season brings a different phase in life and inside us, with its specific needs for the body, internal organs and emotions. Autumn is a time of harvest, when we reap off the fruits of our hard work and past experiences. It's time to let go of what won't serve us anymore, let in fresh air and only what serves us. In the fall we get ready for the introspection that will eventually come with the winter.
We will discuss how to adopt a lifestyle and practices that help us enjoy the fall and harmonize with the season: gentle QiGong movements, stretches, meditations and breathing practices, nutrition, where to prioritize our attention, etc.
Alternating presentation of TCM principles, with discussions, QiGong & Tai-Chi movements, stretching, and meditation, this inspiring workshop will give you a new perspective on how to harmonize your life according to nature and its seasonal rhythms. You will leave relaxed and rejuvenated. You will take home information relevant to your daily life, as well as handouts and videos to remember the practices you've learned!
