Physical arts can be an important part of the healing process. Practices such as yoga, qi qong and martial arts have many health benifits such as:
- Increased strength and flexibility
- Better circulation of vital substances
- Deeper breathing and improved oxygen intake
- A stronger mind /body connection
- Less stress
- Improved mental functioning
- Better posture
- Prevention if injury through better body mechanics
HOLISTIC EXERCISE PROGRAM
This gentle exercise class is designed for people who are new to physical disciplines or just returning to exercise after a period if inactivity. It utilizes practices from qi gong, martial arts and yoga to help students reconnect with their bodies in a relaxed and noncompetitive atmosphere. This class is ideal for seniors, people recovering from illness or injury and anyone who wants the benefits of physical exercise without the stress of a hard work out.
Martial Arts Instruction
I offer private and group instruction in two styles of kung fu; Ba Ji Chuan (Eight Directional Boxing) and Xing Yi Chuan (Form Mind Boxing). No prior experience is necessary. In group or private sessions the Kung fu training starts with the basics and builds up from there.
Qi Gong is an ancient Chinese practice that combines slow movements, conscious breathing, and focused mental attention to strengthen and enhance the flow of Qi (energy) throughout your body. Rather than addressing your symptoms (as Western medicine tends to do), Qi Gong addresses your ailment at its very source by healing your entire being — mentally, emotionally and physically.
