Longwater Workshops

  • half day (typically 3 hours)
  • full day (5-6 hours incl. time off for lunch)

Five Seasons Qigong: Winter Calm and Storing

We continue our popular series of 'immersion' weekend workshops that span the year and its seasons. Discover and embody ancient practices that were created to naturally resonate with the energies of the Earth through its annual cycle.

Winter practices do not over exert the body or mind. Now is the time to give yourself permission to allow your body and mind to settle and rest. We move smoothly and meditatively in harmony with the quiet of this season. The steady, slow movements of Qigong at this time are ideal for settling, integrating and nourishing your energy.

Sat (10am to 4.30pm) / Sun (10am to 1pm). Cost £70 for both days / £35 for the Sat Morning session only.

On Sunday we offer an in-depth workshop where you can deepen your study, as well as review and practice what we learn on the Saturday - see details. You do not have to attend this session but it is included in the price.
