Having not experienced Chi Kung much before I was blown away by how accessible, enjoyable and profound the Chi Kung Earth Element weekend was. I found myself reconnecting in a way I have not for a long time, and the best part was the feeling of connection has stayed with me and seems to be deepening as I continue to practice a little every day. I feel my creativity and enjoyment for life bubbling over and everything seems more manageable and easier to ‘digest’ than usual.The weekend itself was a celebration of movement, breath, nature and wellness and Willa seamlessly wove together the Chi Kung forms with plant medicine, word wisdom and time in nature. I am deeply grateful for this experience”

Elemental Chi Kung is a progressive approach to chi kung that incorporates classic styles and philosophies with modern bodymind and energy concepts. The approach explores body and chi awareness as a way to deepen into our internal chi flow through movement, stillness, meditation and breath. A creative space is sought to allow our essential nature to express itself and bring about transformations. The approach emphasizes the five elements as the foundation of chi kung. 
The workshops in Chi Kung are an ongoing series that interested participants can enter at any point. The workshops can either be attended individually or as a whole series.

There are ten, 2 day workshops and the overall intention of the workshops are to present Chi Kung as a way to open to a deeper and richer connection to the life force within the human system and within nature. In particular to listen and be aware of the subtle power of your health and become aware of movements of chi within your body and mind. 

The workshops will teach the following skills:

* self reflection

*stability and groundedness

*stillness of the body and mind

*sensitivity to chi

*Use of intention

*Strength, Stamina and flexibilty

*synchronisity of movement, along with an understanding and appreciation of the body's structure, traditional chinese medical concepts and taoist philosophy.

For those who want to teach Elemental Chi Kung - you must attend all 10 workshops plus two retreats as well as completing additional homework. This must be completed within 3 consecutive years.
