Yi Ren Qigongâ
How to Find Balance, Greater Energy, and Longevity from Inside Out
Yi Ren Qigongâ is a powerful self-help form that blends ancient Chinese self-healing techniques with modern science to develop the body’s bio-energetic ‘Qi’ system for greater health, vitality, and self-awareness. The Foundation 1A class at Skagit Valley College San Juan Center meets on Thursdays, 5:30 – 7:00pm, October 3 through November 21.
How are your energy levels? Can you get through the day without crashing or relying on caffeine and sugar to boost your productivity? Do you need more balance in your life? Less anxiety? Your Qi level shapes your life and how well or poorly you are aging.
Regular practitioners of Yi Ren Qigong often experience relief from stress; strengthened mental focus; reduced chronic pain; improved functions of organs and immune system; greater vitality; improved connection with authentic self, the natural world, and spiritual enrichment.
Join certified instructor Stephanie Prima for a fascinating journey. In her seven plus years of Qigong practice, she has remarkable first-hand experience of the life-transformative qualities of Yi Ren Qigong.
In Holli Brown’s experience, “Stephanie’s focus and dedication to the practice is superior. She seems to breathe the techniques and sequences from her bones and yet at the same time is very conscious of how the instruction is being received by the students so learning is maximized. She brings a deep level of awareness to the practice which changes the energy of the group to one of acceptance and openness. I really appreciated her approach, encouragement and helpfulness. The Yi Ren practice itself is very powerful. I felt a strong connection to my energy systems and the benefits of the different techniques. I would highly recommend this school of Qigong as well as Stephanie as an instructor.”
Chronic disorders such as insomnia, anxiety, digestion issues, high blood pressure, depression, auto-immune disorders can often be improved when you take an active role in your own healing and wellness. The Yi Ren Qigong focus on balancing body and mind as one entity helps you do this from inside out.
Class time is a combination of discussion, breathing exercises and gentle, meditative movements. It is appropriate for most fitness/health levels, ages 16 and up, and can be done standing or from a sitting position.
