Better Bones!! – A Bone Strengthening Workshop

Sun City West, AZ
Wednesday, January 9th, 2019, 12:30 PM – 1:30 PM

As we get older, we begin to lose more bone than we build. The tiny holes within bones get bigger, and the solid outer layer becomes thinner. In other words, our bones get less dense. Did you know that over 10 million people nationwide are estimated to have osteoporosis?
If you’ve been diagnosed with osteoporosis or osteopenia – it’s NOT too late. Join Master Michael Leone and improve your bones through ancient qigong remedies and tai chi practices. These eastern medicine techniques are backed by western medicine’s research to help build BETTER BONES!
■ Learn simple, at-home techniques
■ Get stronger – stay healthy

Taijiquan Four Skills Seminar:
The Ultimate Skills of Restraining, Seizing, Grasping, and Closing

Phoenix, AZ: February 23 & 24, 2019
St. Paul, MN: March 23 & 24, 2019

Instructed by Stuart Alve Olson
The Four Skills represent the highest teachings and secrets of self-defense in internal martial arts:

Restraining is the method for obstructing the blood vessels of an opponent. Seizing is the method for obstructing the meridians of an opponent. Grasping is the method for injuring the sinews of an opponent. Closing is the method of shutting off qi centers of an opponent.

Stuart will be teaching the training exercises for each of the Four Skills along with detailed explanations of the 4 main blood vessels, 5 meridians, 6 sinews, and 7 qi centers used in the training instructions. These internal art methods don’t require strength and so are extremely effective for males and females.

Open Enrollment: Zen Yoga 200 Hour Course

Sun City West, AZ
Every Tuesday, 11:00 am – 1:00 pm
Today yoga is at the heart of many fitness programs. Yet yoga is bigger than physical fitness – it encompasses the mind and self along with the physical body. Zen Yoga’s foundation combines the art of yoga with the science of qigong for a better balanced person on all levels. In olden days, intro to yoga was 7 years (the amount of time it took for all the cells in the body to exchange old for new). The idea of transforming oneself occurs on a cellular level, letting go of old patterns and outdated ideas to welcome in a fresh start. Yoga is often promoted as a specific number or hours course. This is to upgrade the transformation process for a more intentional outcome – a newer better you! YES – some are here to learn to teach others, BUT what everyone here has in common is the yogic journey itself. This course is designed to allow anyone to start at any time – we all know life waits for no one – it simply keeps moving, and it is up to us to jump on for the ride!

“I want to say…

a few words about Master Michael Leone.  I was looking for someone who could help instruct me a little bit more in depth in the world of Qi Gong and how it works, not just the movement and the breathing. 

He’s definitely the right person for that.  He’s well versed and well trained.  He will help you understand the basics, and give you a better understanding of how you can go about helping other people learn about Qi Gong.  How it can benefit their health, themselves, their friends, their family, and everyone around them.  If you’re looking for something like that, I would highly recommend Master Campbell and Master Leone’s services."

~Kevin Clark, Chief Instructor, President of America’s Martial Arts Institute, Medical Qigong Instructor, Kileen, TX

“I began my training…

at Zen Wellness on February 6, 2010. In my time there I have learned life skills I will keep forever in my mind and body.

Although my primary focus was Kung Fu, I have also participated in several Qigong classes, both of which have benefited me greatly. I am so thankful that I have discovered the importance of understanding how to cleanse my chi; knowing what that means alone, is a benefit in itself. To me it is a process of filling my heart, body, mind and spirit with purifying thoughts through various forms of meditation and movement.

The most important lessons I gained from training are the fundamentals of dedication, hard work, strength, honor, respect and courtesy. All of these will help me in my pursuit of success in my acting career and personal life. By attending classes I have completed the development of a new perspective on life and the way I move throughout it. I now approach life with a new mentality that I learned in class; “by telling myself I have already achieved something, that solves half the battle.” Although I am grateful for all of these things, I am most thankful for my Kung Fu skills.

~Andrea Ridgeway, Actress, Los Angeles, CA
