Allen Horowitz Offers Qigong Classes In Asheville 

Allen has been practicing and teaching Qigong, Yoga, Tai Chi and Exercise for his entire adult life as the former owner of The Body Shop (Yoga, Tai Chi, and Massage Studio) as well as The Fitness Center of East Hampton New York,  Allen has taught, coached and shared his unique knowledge with hundreds of people including top professional athletes, actors and models who depend on their bodies for their livelihoods.
For the past twenty-plus years, he has been studying and practicing the ancient Chinese Healing Art of Qigong.  After seven years of study, Master Song Arun suggested that he teach and share his knowledge and understanding with others.  In the spirit of helping others, Allen offers classes at affordable rates to pass these healing benefits on to others of the Asheville community.  Allen also continues to study with respected Masters and teachers in a never ending quest for self improvement and to pass on these effective techniques.
"My goal is to teach and explain the movements, theories, and techniques that will enable my students to actually experience and feel the pure life force of Qi."  I try to demystify these ancient, formerly secret techniques and make them accessible to all who are interested in learning them.   All levels are welcome.
The forms Allen teaches are: The Five Treasures and The Eight Pieces of Brocade as well as several types of Tao Yin and other movements that are not components of forms.  He occasionally offers Workshops and special extended classes that feature Primordial Qigong also known as Wuji Qigong and in Spring 2018, he will start teaching the. Yi Jin JIng.     These workshops will be posted as they are scheduled, so if you are interested, periodically check this website, or contact us to get on the email list.
                              The next scheduled Workshop will teach the Primordial (Wuji) Qi Gong form as taught by Master Zhou Hui and passed on to Roger Jahnke
