Qigong Grandmasters at Ohlone College

In their only West Coast visit, eight representatives of the Chinese Health Qigong Association will visit the Ohlone College Newark Center on October 11 and 12 to introduce four easy to learn forms of Health Qigong.

Qigong has been developed, simplified and standardized on the modern theories and methods of health science as a smooth and coherent set of movements. The movements include turning, bending and extending, pulling and drawing of the muscles, bones and joints, especially those of the spine. These actions are characterized by elegant, natural and smooth movements.

Today, millions of people practice Qigong in China and around the world to successfully improve general health, support longevity, and promote psycho-spiritual growth and happiness. Most notably, Qigong practice can provide profound relief to stress and strongly enhance immune functions. Data published by the US Department of Health and Human Services states that as much as 70% of diseases reported in the US are totally preventable. In a time when healthcare options are ever more limited the increased awareness and use of Qigong can provide relief. These energy-building methods provide the means to assume greater responsibility for personal health and to and achieve benefits for body, mind, and spirit.

This symposium is open to the public and no experience is necessary. Registration is available online at www.ohlone.edu/go/qigong. For additional information or group discounts, please contact Robin Kurotori at 510.742.2350 or by email at rkurotori@ohlone.edu.
