This Young Adult “On Her Own” Basics course is a 20-hour course designed specifically for women 17 to 22 years old. Similar to the Adult Basics course, we cover awareness, boundary setting, and physical self-defense, but this class teaches young women how to respond to problems they often encounter as they begin to face the world on their own. Classes are limited to 14-16 students.

This course meets on multiple dates over a weekend – Friday, June 14th (2pm-8pm), Saturday, June 15th (12pm-8pm), and Sunday, June 16th (10am-6pm) – please make sure you are available to attend every session.

May is for Remembrance

To EveryONE who has a Mother!

We celebrate two very special holidays in May: Mother’s Day, and Memorial Day. Both remind us to give thanks to those who have made our lives even possible. First, we should especially acknowledge those who birthed us and raised us, who cooked, clothed and fed us. With the same awareness, we may also give thanks to any who have “mothered” us along our way.   Nurturing is an art in itself! Secondly, we should pause to offer gratitude to those who have gone to battle to protect us. They have sacrificed much.

 

Let this gratitude and appreciation propel you forward to make the most of your life and your resources. In Chinese medicine, May is the heart of the Spring season, the season of the Wood Element. Those who have taken our Qigong classes know what that means! Wood Element is about birth, growth, determination, and drive. Like a young green shoot pushing up through the soil, respond to this seasonal flow and “get s**t done”! Know your dream? Start now to make it happen!

 

Not one to preach but not practice, Chris is following his dream of becoming a bestselling author and world renowned proponent of Chinese medicine. Our first book, “Qigong Self-Refinement Course” will be published by Balboa Press this summer. We hope to have copies to take when we go to the International Fitness Professional Association convention in Florida in July.   In any case we will launch the book with a celebration at the Center. Stay tuned for that!
