World-renowned Instructor of the Healing Practice of Qigong to Teach in Los Angeles Mar. 7 & 8
Date:1/29/2009

LOS ANGELES, Jan. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- The Shambhala Meditation Center of Los Angeles will present a program featuring Master Eva Wong, a 19th generation master of Quigong - an ancient practice of physical fitness, which has been used for thousands of years in China to balance and retain youthfulness in the body. The Level 1 & 2 Qigong programs will held March 7th & 8th at the Center for the Arts in Eagle Rock.

The healing Taoist practice of Qigong cultivates strength of body and calmness of mind through an integration of physical postures, breathing techniques, and focused intentions. Its gentle, rhythmic movements have been proven to reduce stress, build stamina, increase vitality, and enhance the immune system. It has also been found to improve cardiovascular, respiratory, circulatory, lymphatic and digestive functions.

According to Ms. Wong, those who maintain a consistent practice of Qigong find that it helps one regain a youthful vitality. In more than thirty research studies, Qigong has been found to reverse the effects of aging.

The program will provide a rare opportunity to receive instruction in two unique lineages: the Pre-celestial Limitless Gate School (Xiantianwujimen) and the Yiquan School, neither of which have previously been fully transmitted to students in the West.

In Level 1, students will be instructed in techniques of outer and inner qigong. Outer qigong is concerned with strengthening the muscular-skeletal system - joints, muscles, tendons, bones, and spinal column. Inner qigong is concerned with nourishing the internal organs and cultivating internal energy. Students will learn Chen Xiyi's sleeping and walking qigong and Wang Xiangzhai's standing qigong.

In Level 2, students will learn the Nine Self-Massage Technique and the Twelve Devas Tendon-changing system. The Self-Massage Technique focuses on stimulating the meridians and acupuncture points and the Twelve Devas focus on flexibility, strength, and softness in the tendons and muscles. Level I qigong is required to attend Level II.

Classes will be held March 7 and 8, 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM. Costs: $200; General Public ($150.00 Members, Seniors and Students) ($100.00 Deposit). Registration or information: (323) 255-5472 or http://la.shambhala.org/program_details.php?id=16983&cid=208.

The Center for the Arts in Eagle Rock is located at 2225 Colorado Blvd, Los Angeles (Eagle Rock) 90041. The Center provides innovative and multicultural arts programming to North East Los Angeles, and surrounding
