Sutter qigong offers new summer classes

By
From page A11 | June 14, 2013 |

Summer session qigong classes sponsored by Sutter Health begin Monday, June 24, and run for 10 Mondays. Classes take place at the Davis Holistic Health Center, 1403 Fifth St., and the schedule includes two new classes.

“Qigong for Healthy Weight,” from 4 to 5 p.m., features a form specifically designed for weight loss by a Chinese master. In Chinese medicine, finding and maintaining a healthy weight is less about calorie deprivation than it is about moving and eating in ways that balance and regulate the organs. The class will introduce students to this theory as well as to eating for balance according to Chinese nutrition therapy.

A new class, “Qigong for Emotional Harmony” runs from 5 to 6 pm. This class will help students understand how Chinese medicine sees emotions and will offer tools — gentle movement, acupressure and meditation — that can be used to achieve tranquility and emotional harmony. Participants will pay special attention to the emotions and mental states that Chinese medicine argues can affect physical health: anger, worry, fear, grief and sadness.

“Please note: This class is not designed for persons who have major mental health issues,” a news release said, “nor is it a substitute for psychotherapy, medication or proper psychiatric care.” Contact instructor Rebecca Pope, certified master of medical qigong, if you have questions. She may be reached at [email protected] or 530-792-7127.

A second new class, “Five Animal Frolic Qigong,” fills the 6-7 p.m. hour. Designed by a Chinese physician hundreds of years ago, the Frolics (bear, crane tiger, deer and monkey) are some of the oldest surviving qigong exercises for health and healing. Come discover your inner animals.

Beginning and experienced students are welcome in all classes, but space is limited. The session fee for 10 classes is $140 and drop-ins are welcome for $15 per class.

For more information, or to register, contact Pope.
