"If you want to be healthy and live to 100, practice Qigong."
By Dr. Oz
Qigong is an easy-to-follow combination of controlled breathing, focused concentration, and simple movement.
Many centuries older than Tai Chi Chuan - Qigong (pronounced Chee Gung) is sometimes referred to as "moving meditation", or Chinese Yoga. This ancient Chinese art does not involve a choreographed sequence and is generally performed either standing, sitting or lying in one place.
Qigong exercises reduce tension and increase the flow of energy through your body. When it flows free, Qi energy heals and restores the body; thereby increasing health and fitness. Join the growing number of people who have first-hand experience with the awesome power of Qigong.
"By the end of a Gyrokinesis session, one's entire system is awakened and brought into greater balance."
"GYROKINESIS® classes can be adapted to fit anyone's ability. People from all walks of life including accomplished athletes, fitness enthusiasts, senior citizens, and people recovering from an injury or dealing with a disability take Gyrokinesis classes. Focus on the breath stimulates the parasympathetic nervous system resulting in a sense of calm, wellbeing and mental clarity."

"A mind, when housed within a healthful body, possesses a glorious sense of power."
By Joseph Pilates
Pilates is an exercise system that reconnects us to the way we learned how to move as a human being in the first place, and, as a means to undo the damage caused by sedentary lifestyles. Pilates recognizes that the constant resistance provided by the springs makes for improved proprioceptive feedback, and keeps the body alert and working in all aspects of the movement. This ultimately allows the Reformer to become a teacher in its own merit, because it teaches the desired movement quality we look for in a Pilates practice: full-bodied effort, length and lift, and opposition. The Universal Reformer reforms a body by providing it with a clear trajectory to move within – hence increasing movement efficiency – as well as closing the kinetic chain for improved proprioceptive feedback, and adding load and resistance to the movement for accelerated neural adaptation.
