Five Elements Qigong for Beginners

There are times where our bodies feel run down, fatigue and something just feels “off.” I have had plenty of those days where I could feel that my body was overly-stressed and that is usually when I would get sick. I would constantly run myself down without properly analyzing how much was “too much” for me. I mean, when you are in your 20’s, you are some unstoppable force right? Nothing can stop you and you must do everything in your power to keep pushing through.


However, your body will quickly tell you “no, you are being silly and I will shut you down” which is how I would usually get sick.

At the time, I did not really understand how to properly regulate myself in a way that felt “healthy” to me. Luckily, when I was in acupuncture school, we were taught qigong classes as part of our curriculum. The Five Elements Qigong was one of the first formal sets I learned and it has been the most impacting in my life. I still refer back to this set whenever I need it and it has never failed me. I still end up referring back to these exercises and finding myself more in tune with my body.
