Gentle Fitness Classes
Looking for alternatives to high-intensity workout programs? Low-impact exercises can improve health and fitness in the same ways as more traditional exercise without the risk of harming your joints.
Moderate-intensity, low-impact activity, such as yoga, tai chi, and regular stretching routines can be just as effective as high-impact activity in lowering the risk of heart disease.
For first-timers or those looking to fine-tune their practice. Emphasis on the fundamentals of Yoga to increase awareness of alignment, build strength and increase flexibility.
Tai Chi QiGong
Qigong is an ancient Chinese meditative practice designed to open energy pathways and increase internal energy (Qi) flow. Tai Chi Qigong is a mixture of traditional Tai Chi postures and Qigong breath movements designed to release stiffness in joints, balance organ functioning, and physically strengthen while giving clarity to the mind.
QiYoga (pronounced “Chi Yoga”) uses flowing Qigong and Yoga asanas to stretch, energize and relax the body. Each class is different, playful and fun - and may include balance poses, twisting, and core, strengthening, practiced with the intensity that’s right for each student.
This ancient Chinese meditative practice is designed to open energy pathways and increase internal energy (Qi) flow. Of our yogic offerings QiGong is a more spiritually directed moving meditation that involves slow flowing movement, deep rhythmic breathing, and calm state of mind.
