Mind-Body Classes

Using mind-body practices to promote health and affect physical functioning dates back more than 2,000 years. Mind-body practices include breathing techniques, physical movement and postures, and meditation or relaxation techniques. We continue to use these methods today for stress reduction, physical health, and to enhance our overall sense of well-being.

The mind-body classes offered at Kaiser Permanente include:

Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction
Improve your ability to manage the physical and psychological symptoms associated with chronic illness, chronic pain, anxiety, depression, and stress-related conditions using meditation and stress reduction techniques.

Senior Yoga
Recommended for seniors new to yoga who wish to enhance their strength, flexibility, and balance.

Chi Gung (a.k.a. Qigong)
Qigong (pronounced 'Chi Gong') is the "Great Grandparent" of Tai Chi. Qigong is a 5000 year-old mind-body exercise which uses slow movements, breath, intention, sound, and posture to nurture and revitalize our life energy. Numerous studies have shown the many benefits of Qigong include: improved balance, lowered resting heart rate, decreased respiratory rate, boosted immune system, improved cerebral blood flow, and decreased stress response. Qigong is easy to learn and the benefits last a life time. This class is open to adults of all ages and abilities.
