Medical Qigong: Flowing with the Five Elements

with William Kaplanidis


The concept of the “five elements” (wood, fire, earth, metal and water) as energetic archetypes whose cycles affect the flow of energy in our bodies is central to ancient Chinese medicine and to its qigong health exercises.

In this class, we will learn movements and breath control exercises that help unblock the specific acupuncture meridians that circulate qi (energy) to the organs associated with each element, thereby assisting the body in reaching a state of balance on both the physical and emotional/spiritual levels.

For example:

  • the lung exercise helps ward off colds and lifts one’s spirit
  • the stomach exercise can assist with digestive issues and relieve anxiety
  • the liver exercise can help alleviate irritability and pain; etc.

Come learn the essence of the Five Element Theory and an easy-to-learn exercise set that will help harmonize your organs and accelerate your body’s natural healing abilities.

Note: No previous experience necessary; please wear comfortable clothing that does not restrict movement and flat-soled shoes.

Note: This program will be offered online. Sessions of all our online programs will be recorded and shared with registrants after each is completed for 90 days.
