Basic Qigong comprises standing (or sitting) postures with slow graceful arm or leg movements for full range of motion. Improves muscle and joint flexibility, range of motion, lymph flow, blood circulation. It also calms the mind, improves mindfulness, and cultivates physical balance. The extra benefit that distinguishes Qigong from most traditional physical fitness exercises is its self-healing nature as it clears energy blockages and balances the internal organs/systems towards homeostasis. It primarily allows the wisdom of the body systems to heal themselves and resist diseases by stimulating energy flow, removing energy blockages, and reducing needless stress from the mind and body tissue. Qigong instruction comprises a preparation phase, five elements, and ending with a closing phase-each class lasting 1 1/2 hours on a weekly or twice weekly basis.
Class is suited for beginners and advanced practitioners; all ages are welcome. Comfortable loose-fitting clothes are recommended-clothing that allows free movement and full range of motion for arms and legs. Tennis shoes, sweat socks, or bare feet are fine. Can't make it to every class, single class is $15.
Advance registration ends two days before each class.

Hatha yoga is a slow-paced gentle asana practice focusing on introducing basic yoga poses and establishing a strong foundation in the practice of yoga. Hatha yoga balances the "Ha" - sun/stimulating energy with the "Tha" - moon/calming energy.
Restorative yoga helps promote deep relaxation of the body and the mind. Postures provide similar benefits to classic Hatha yoga postures and are usually done in a supported manner to minimize strain and maximize opening. Dress comfortably and bring a yoga mat.
