In the five-element system used in Chinese medicine, autumn is associated with the Metal element. Metal in this instance refers not only to metals, but also to minerals and gems, and thus it is a crystal-clear, jewel-like quality we aspire to in autumn Qigong practice.

Come learn simple but effective practices that settle and clear your emotions, inspire your spirit, coordinate your breath, mind, and body, and that clear and tonify your lungs, colon, and immune system - parts of the body that help us let go of what no longer serves us. In this way, we enter into a lightness of being, and we stay connected to what's true to our heart, mind, spirit, and body.

Our lungs and immunity need particular attention now, due to both Covid and the early start to smoke season.


Practices in this workshop include slow, moving meditations, specific breath work, and visualization techniques from Qigong, as well as Yoga poses that open the lungs and the lung and colon meridians.

This is a 2-hour workshop.
