School’s in session: time to get back to YOU! Sept. Newsletter

It’s September already!  The kids are back in school, days are noticeably shorter, and gardeners are reaping summer crops–from tomatoes and peppers to apples and figs.  It’s a good time to consider the power of daily practices to change our lives over the long run.
A great example of how a daily practice can change your life come from our CEO, Chris Shelton.  Chris began doing  Qigong more than 20 years ago.  He began to get surprising benefits from Qigong within the first six months-and you can too.  “In the beginning,” he says, “I thought this Qi business was just hocus-pocus.  But then I noticed the benefits.”  Qigong practice involves meditation and simple movements, and an exercise routine can be custom-tailored  to any lifestyle.

To read more about Chris’  life experience and his approach to Qigong, get his book, “Qigong for Self-Refinement”, available online or from the Morning Crane Center.  To start your own Qigong practice, join Chris’ free class on Saturday, September 14, details below.  Come check us out!

Or if you’re in for something more vigorous, see our list of ongoing aerobic exercise classes from TRX to Pilates to Kickboxing.  Don’t wait, start to transform your life today!
