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 The idea of transforming oneself occurs on a cellular level, letting go of old patterns and outdated ideas to welcome in a fresh start.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.
