From page A4 | March 07, 2012 |

After the rest of winter, according to Chinese medicine, spring calls for more activity and motion.

With that in mind, qigong classes will be offered for 10 weeks starting Monday, March 26, at the Davis Holistic Health Center, 1403 Fifth St. The cost is $140 for all 10 weeks or $15 per class on a drop-in basis.

Qigong provides many benefits: stress reduction, enhanced flexibility and joint health, better balance, lower blood pressure and a quieter mind. Additionally, the gentle and flowing movements help those who practice qigong to become more attuned with the season, a news release said.

“Qigong for Healthy Aging,” from 4 to 5 p.m., is designed for boomers and active seniors, concentrating on joints, bones, balance and flexibility. Students also will learn about how Chinese medicine understands aging and its practices for slowing the aging process.

“Qigong for Women’s Health,” from 5 to 6 p.m., introduces students to how Chinese medicine understands a woman’s body throughout the lifecycle. Exercises that can help with stress, fertility, PMS, menopause and depression will be practiced as well as exercises for enhancing overall health and well-being.

“Qigong for Stress and Fatigue,” from 6 to 7 p.m., helps students to find an island of quiet in busy lives. This class will feature exercises that help to release mental and muscular tension, that help the practitioner find her/his center, and gather energy for rejuvenation.

For more information, or to reserve a place (space is limited), contact instructor Rebecca Pope, certified master of medical Qigong, at qigongforhealth@gmail.com or (530) 792-7127.
