New classes for Sutter qigong include ‘Chinese yoga’

From page A9 | September 11, 2013 |

Two new classes are featured in the fall qigong schedule sponsored by Sutter Health. The 10-week session begins Monday, Sept. 23, and classes are held at the Davis Holistic Health Center, 1404 Fifth St.

“Chinese Yoga” runs from 5 to 6 p.m. It is said that yoga traveled from India to China, and both are famous for movement systems that improve the health of the “whole person” — body, mind and spirit. What we now call “qigong” was earlier called “Chinese yoga” or “dao-yin.”

The form featured in this class, developed by a Chinese grandmaster, emphasizes movements that ancient Chinese exercise and Indian yoga share. This graceful form flows from posture to posture like tai chi and focuses on alignment and movements that stretch the entire body and open the joints. It enhances balance, flexibility and strength. Attention to the breath and the qi during the movements can help reduce stress and increase vitality.

This is a standing practice; no mat is necessary.

A second new class, “Qigong for Harmony and Balance,” runs from 6 to 7 p.m. If we feel rooted and centered, the Chinese say, we can improve both physical and mental balance, and from balance comes harmony of body, mind and spirit.

The class features practices — breathwork, movement, meditation and self-acupressure — used not only to reduce stress but also to find the quiet within that comes from feeling grounded and centered. The class also will explore ancient Chinese techniques for harmonizing emotions like anger, grief, worry and fear.

Beginning and experienced students are welcome in all classes. The session fee for the 10 weeks is $140 per class, and the daily drop-in fee is $17.

For more information, or to register, contact instructor Rebecca Pope at qigongforhealth@gmail.com or 530-792-7127. Pope is a certified master of medical qigong who has trained in both the United States and China. She is also a practitioner with Sutter Integrative Holistic Health.
