Teacher: Simone Elschot

My name is Simone Elschot.
Since 2006, I have been working mainly as a Shiatsu masseur and Tai Chi Qigong teacher.
My interests are diverse and lie in the fields of Taoism, Buddhism, Mayan astrology, Genekeys and Human Design, I Ching, Tarot, music and art.
I love sun, sea, mountains, islands and a Mediterranean climate. And exercise; being outside a lot!
In Enschede (NL), I teach Tai Chi Qigong classes all year round in the park; surrounded by all the elements.
.

Tai Chi Qigong

During the retreat, Tai Chi Qigong classes take centre stage. The classes are accessible and varied. Both dynamic and gentle, slowing down and stilling.
I have an improvisational way of teaching and also work with sounds or tones. Everyone can participate in his or her own way. There is a special focus on the playful series the 18 Shibashi, some beautiful 5 element forms and meditative walks. With my classes, I like to contribute to more energy flow, awareness, flexibility, stillness, balance, fun! and grounding. So out of your head, with your feet on the ground and being in the moment and feeling what is there. I myself do a few meridian stretches every morning to wake up my body and I like to pass these on to you as well. Of course, as far as I am concerned, an introductory Shiatsu workshop should not be missed and I will teach you some simple but powerful techniques in combination with the right posture.
I have material available in on paper and video.
