Instructor Lynnie Kustal focuses on the stomach meridians. Meridians are energy paths in the body in which Qi (vital energy) flows through. Proper digestion is encouraged when pressure is applied to these points on the body.

Qigong (pronounced chee-gong) is a mind and body practice that improves one’s mental and physical health. It integrates posture, movement, breathing technique, self-massage, sound, and focused intent. It is a gentle form of exercise that reinforces movement awareness and neurological connections to movement.

Lynnie has a long career in meditative exercise. She is a sought-after instructor, having taught yoga at UC Santa Barbara, The Oaks Spa at Ojai, and the Ojai Valley Athletic Club. She received her Yoga certification from the White Lotus Foundation, and is also trained in Qigong and Tai Chi. The focus of her teaching is to promote a feeling of well-being and to awaken in each person a sense of joy through movement.
