SPECIAL EVENT

Reflective Exercise Movement: The Mind-Body Foundation of Qi

WHEN: Part 2: March 13th 10:00-Noon (Participation in Part 1 is not required)
WHERE: Online
LEADER: John Alton
COST: Free
REGISTER: Via Eventbrite       

The Spirituality Center is excited to welcome back John Alton, a renowned authority on Reflective Exercise. John will present two virtual workshops on Qi, an ancient Chinese therapeutic practice for mind, body and spirit. Part 1 of Reflective Exercise Movement: The Mind-Body Foundation of Qi will be presented on February 13. Part 2 will run on March 13.

In these workshops, John will demonstrate the movements of Reflective Exercise. Participants will have the opportunity to learn and practice these movements. John will also share how Reflective Exercise Movement can help to monitor the body’s health and strengthen the immune system. The workshops have been designed to be stand-alone experiences: attend one or both.

John has studied extensively in China and for over a decade operated an instructional studio in Charlottesville, VA before spreading his ideas globally. He has written three books on the Reflective Exercise and led four university-based research studies on this practice. For eleven years he taught this practice to the University of Virginia Varsity swim team. He has presented his ideas and research to the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Health Affairs, the U.S. Army War College, Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, Google, the Beijing Sport University, and Beijing Normal University. He is a board member of the International Society of Chinese Health Practices, a Chinese professional health organization that seeks to research and explain Traditional Chinese Medicine in Western medical terms.

Please join us for an amazing experience.
