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.
In Enschede, I teach Tai Chi Qigong classes in the park all year round; surrounded by all the elements.
I have an improvisational way of teaching.
Tai Chi Qigong
The basis in this retreat consists of Tai Chi Qigong lessons.
Tai Chi Qigong is a form of meditative movement involving attention, breathing and visualisation.
The movements are mostly gentle and flowing, increasing energy, balance, flexibility and awareness.
There is a special focus on the playful series the 18 Shibashi and some beautiful 5 element forms.
I like to work with sounds/sounds but also enjoy practising together in silence.
Short laughter meditation (lying down), meridian stretches (Makko Ho) and Do In self-massage
Laughter brings you into the here and now and is a wonderful start to the day!
By doing meridian stretches, you stretch and activate the 12 main meridians in your body.
You will start to feel more energetic and supple.
In the Do In self massage, we tap and massage our bodies awake.
Introduction Shiatsu massage and a massage given by me
You will learn some fine relaxing Shiatsu techniques for the back side of the body.
We exchange in pairs.
The recipient lies on a mat and we work over clothes.
We work mainly with our thumbs and palms.
By applying pressure and stretching, energy flow in the body is stimulated.
Energy starts to flow better and blockages are resolved.
In addition, each participant can receive a Shiatsu massage from me.
There is no extra charge for this.
