In this five class seminar, open to all levels, we cover one animal per day of the classic Five Animals Qi Gong. Many Chinese Gong Fu schools have their own version of these animal forms and in Wudang there are several versions. This particular version includes Turtle, Dragon, Crane, Tiger, and Snake. This Qi Gong set is rich with dynamic movements and provides a good foundation in basic postures and breathing principles. The movements tonify the five organ systems and balance the five elements within the body. When combined with observation and connection to Nature and to the Spirit of each animal, this set has the potential for a deep elemental experience. We address how qi gong working with the Five Elements System can help with emotional well being and mental health.
This course includes 5 class recordings of 1.5 hours in length, for a total of 7.5 hours of instruction. It also includes over 70 minutes of in depth bonus footage on Five Element Theory.
