Sutter qigong includes new class in spring schedule

From page A14 | March 08, 2013 |

A new 10-week session of qigong classes sponsored by Sutter Health begins Monday, March 25. Classes are held at the Davis Holistic Health Center, 1403 Fifth St.

The all-Monday line-up begins with a new class, “Qigong for Structure: Healthy Joints, Back and Bones” from 4 to 5 p.m. As we age, the joints and spine become less flexible and the bones less strong. Research shows that gentle Chinese exercise can help keep the joints flexible and address arthritis. The class also will cover exercises designed to support and strengthen bones.

“Qigong for Women’s Health” returns from 5 to 6 p.m. Qigong can help women stay vibrant and healthy during every decade of their lives, and this class will introduce students to how Chinese medicine understands the female body throughout the life cycle. Class will include exercises that support breast and bone health as well as exercises to address such issues as stress, depression, fertility PMS, perimenopause and menopause symptoms.

“Qigong for Stress and Fatigue,” from 6 to 7 p.m., is a good choice for people looking for an hour calm in their busy schedules or who want to learn practices that help manage stress or increase energy (qi). The class will introduce students to how Chinese medicine understands stress and its consequences on the body and mind, and will focus on ways to achieve both physical relaxation and a “tranquil mind,” which Chinese medicine sees as the foundation of good health.

Beginning and experienced students are welcome in all classes. Space is limited. The session fee is $140 and daily drop-in costs $15. For more information or to register, contact instructor Rebecca Pope, certified master of medical qigong, at qigongforhealth@gmail.com or 530-792-7127.
