Restart of Qigong classes

Zhineng Qigong is a science of life based on a system of knowledge and methods for physical, emotional and mental wellbeing. It builds on ancient Chinese traditions and on modern sciences. It is holistic and focuses on life and health. It develops human potential. It involves conscious training of the mind. It uses movement, mindfulness, meditation, breathing, and sound. Practitioners learn skills to improve the functions and abilities of the body, and for better life:

Health – Balance – Longevity – Joy – Mental Clarity – Improved Performance – Purpose

It is easy to learn Zhineng Qigong. It is for everyone irrespective of age or health status. Empower yourself with a framework of self-health management and personal transformation to attain your intention for balance and health.

Wednesdays from 8:30 to 9:50am, 24 Jan to 28 March 2018 at City Arts (Kings Hospitality Center, KG672 St #18, Kimihurura), only 5000RWF per lesson

The Teacher

Houda Baladi is a Zhineng Qigong teacher. She has come to Zhineng Qigong some 8 years ago out of curiosity. Because she experienced health benefits as a result of practicing Zhineng Qigong she stayed on and certified as teacher, and as Hun Yuan Qi Therapist. Besides, Houda has an MA in Participation & Social Change, and worked in context of social and community development. She also trained and worked as reintegration coach. Art & Craft has always been an area of interest for Houda since she was young. As a parent, She trained as part of school programme for parents to assist by working with small groups of pupils. Houda shared her passion wherever she lived. Houda’s diverse experiences and interests make her approach to teaching and coaching creative and eclectic. Houda has experience working with adults and children in areas of: Zhineng Qigong, art & craft, and in participatory development.
