Qigong, Now in Highly Digestible Weekly Class Format

Based on the inquiries that have been turning up in my mail, I'm making a change to the format of our regular classes. I want to make it as easy as possible for you to get to the classes you want any time you're ready, so here we go.

Please drop by any time you wish to begin lessons. All are welcome.

The biggest change is that I'll now be offering a qigong class, on Saturdays, from 2-3pm. I have all kinds of awesome material, some that I've covered before, and some that will be brand new to anyone who has studied with me, for us to work through in this class. It is going to be great. For those of you who are looking for a class that focuses exclusively on qigong, this is for you.

Qigong predates tai chi by a couple of thousand years. Some practitioners say it is an easier entry point to the world of energy arts than tai chi. In my opinion, this is definitely true if you have any issues with mobility, if you are just getting into exercise, or you are concerned about your coordination.

Of course if you are interested in qigong and none of those issues concern you, we can offer a workout that will challenge you physically and help you develop a strong meditative focus.

Qigong is incredibly sophisticated. Like tai chi it has layers and layers, so there is no end to the self-exploration you can do, and no end to the technique you'll learn. It just gets better and better. The sooner you start, the sooner you'll reap the benefits.

I will, of course, continue to offer tai chi. The schedule is:

Saturdays, 2:00-3:00: Qigong (Ongoing)
Saturdays, 3:00-4:30: Tai Chi Introduction / Foundation and Continuing Lessons
Wednesdays, 5:30-6:30: Open Workout (All Levels)
Fridays, 1:10-2:40: Advanced Instruction, Tai Chi and Sabre

Lessons are still $10 a pop and offered at The Regent Centre, 150 Locke Street South. Contact me for details at smithmk2@gmail.com or 905 521 0043.
