Sutter summer qigong features new class and the return of a favorite

Sutter-sponsored qigong classes at the Davis Holistic Health Center, 1403 Fifth St., begin Monday, June 25, and run for 10 weeks. The schedule features a new class and the return of a favorite.
“Qigong for Healthy Aging” is offered from 5 to 6 pm. In China, many people in their 50s, 60s, and 70s take up the gentle, flowing exercises of qigong in order to age with better health and greater vitality.

Designed with boomers and active seniors in mind, this class features movements and self-care massage and acupressure techniques used in China to open joints; improve flexibility, balance and circulation; strengthen bones; address hypertension; enhance heart health; and support memory and a healthy brain.
“Five Element Medical Qigong,” a new class, meets from 6 to 7 p.m. Designed by a Chinese master to support health and healing, this class focuses on the major organs — heart, kidneys, spleen, lungs and liver. A body/mind/spirit practice, Chinese medicine links these organs to specific emotions, including anger, worry, fear, grief and stress.

This practice is designed to strengthen organ energies while simultaneously harmonizing the emotions, so practitioners gain enhanced vitality and organ health as well as emotional balance.
Beginning and experienced students are welcome in both classes. Space is limited. The session fee is $140; drop-ins are welcome if space is available, at $17 per class.

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