Next Meetup

Qi Gong 8m-9am, Tuesdays
Welcome, You are warmly invited to join us in these ancient and health promoting breathing and moving exercises. Beginners: learn qi gong for the first time. Seasoned practitioners: further cultivate, share and refine your energy. This wonderful class is a community offering from Gentle Way Acupuncture. It is my joy to share this fun, health building practice with you. No prior experience required. Anyone can learn. I am a Culver City local, acupuncturist and owner of Gentle Way Acupuncture, Star Urmston LAc. I have a deep love for the sweetness of the Culver City Area, as well as the ancient art of qi gong.... so why not combine the two? Ever heard of Tai Qi? Well, Qi Gong is very similar. It is breathing and moving practice rooted in the ancient wisdom of the Martial Arts and Taoist - Chinese Medicine. It is a way of refining and cultivating oneself and, most of all, enjoying the incredible beauty of the present moment. The purpose of this group is to provide basic qi gong instruction in a natural setting, as is traditional. You are invited to gather with us in the park and enjoy waking up and cultivating your energy. The more we proactively awaken ourselves every day, the more enjoyment in our lives we have, and the more we have to offer to the world around us. Also, did I mention it is fun! This Meet-Up is open to all ages (who have the ability to participate in an hour long class) and all abilities. I will provide qi gong instruction in a playful, free form way to connect to the energy within and all around us. I will also give traditionally rooted instruction in the wonderful and foundational qi gong practice called "The Ten Pieces of Silk." This is a superb daily practice for working with basic health promoting breathing and moving exercises. All are welcome- Seasoned practitioners: come share and further cultivate your presence and energy. Beginners: we all must awaken a beginners mind of curiosity, focus and enjoyment in every moment, so you are right where you need to be to begin practicing and learning qi gong for the first time. Hope to see you here : ). (Note: No Class if raining). Enter park on corner of Jefferson and Duquesne- we meet on the lower green field immediately to your right. Warmly, -Star Urmston LAc




What we're about

Hello All,

The purpose of this group is to offer ongoing Health and Wellness education, workshops, weekly classes and community events for women. It is my desire to offer a space of nourishment, reconnection to the self, recharging and refueling of our vital energy, so that we, as women, are empowered to be loving and generous with all those in our lives- especially ourselves.

If you want to be a beacon of warmth, kindness, inspiration and positive growth for yourself, your family and your community, this group is for you.

If you desire radiant health and wellness on all levels of your life- mental, emotional, physical and relational, this group is for you.

Classes and events are designed to offer you nourishment and encouragement, as well as accurate reporting of the state of your real life. My desire is to offer reinforcement for where you are already strong, and illumination where you could improve the quality of your life and the tools to do so. My background is as a bodyworker for over 16 years, a licensed acupuncturist for over 8 years, a craniosacral and polarity therapy practitioner for over 15 years, a student of mindful movement and vital energy cultivation for over 12 years in the dance and qi gong communities. My intention is to to offer the best of the best, that I have encountered in all my years of complementary medicine study and life experience, to support and expand your radiant health in a simple, applicable and easy to understand way.

These wellness classes and events are born out of my desire to offer my acupuncture patients, bodywork clients, and you an all encompassing wellness program you can personally tailor and implement in your daily lives. The result? You living the life you were meant to live- and enjoying it all- all the challenges and all the successes that come with your life path. Some of my classes and events are donation basis, or complementary, others have a fee to support the locations and environments conducive to the work. I make every effort to make classes, events and programs available at varying levels of cost so that there is something for everyone.

Blessings, Love and Light on the Journey.
