Practicing the Winter set can help ward off the cold, contracting nature of the Winter. Winter embodies the natural forces that bring about restful rejuvenation and a storing up of energy for the upcoming year – this is a beginning in the seasonal cycle of life.
This set corresponds to the Kidneys, Urinary Bladder, ears, low back, legs and knees. The movements in the Winter set of the 4 Seasons Chi Kung series focuses on the lower aspects of the body to develop a strong, stable and deep root.
Releasing Sounds (see 6 Releasing Sounds reference):
- Kidney – Chui (ch-way)
The forms are performed in order sequentially as listed in the lessons below at a slow, continuous and flowing pace.
Note: there is an Opening and Closing form to the set. When combining additional 4 Seasons Chi Kung sets together in a series the Opening and Closing forms are typically performed only once at the beginning and once at end of the series instead of per each individual set.
- Form – a short, repetitive movement.
- Set – a sequence of separate forms or movements strung together and fluidly performed from one form to the next.
- Series – a sequence of separate sets strung together and fluidly performed from one series to the next
Read through the additional course documents. The Handout is a step by step instructional guide for each form in the Spring set. The Poster document n be used as a reminder of each form in the set.
