To stay healthy, we need to move.
Qigong offers gentle movement to enhance body, mind and spirit, and 10-week spring-session classes begin Monday, March 31, at the Davis Holistic Health Center, 1403 Fifth St., offered by Sutter Integrative Holistic Health.
Beginning and experienced participants are welcome in all classes.
“Qigong for Women’s Health,” from 5 to 6 p.m., will introduce students to how Chinese medicine understands a woman’s body throughout the life cycle. This class features exercises to support breast, bone, reproductive organ and heart health, as well as practices to address stress, anxiety and depression. Learn Chinese tips for managing menopause and for aging with vitality and wisdom.
“Qigong for Structure: Joints, Back and Bones,” will introduce exercises to keep the back flexible, the bones strong and the joints open and free of discomfort. Students also will learn self-care acupressure techniques to address back pain, shoulder tension and arthritis.
Space is limited. The session is $140, and drop-ins are welcome as space allows, at $17 per class.
