Weekly Movement Classes 

Lepeng has been teaching group Yoga and Pilates classes at gyms and yoga studios since 2012. She has witnessed many people struggling in regular Yoga and Pilates classes as well as other strenuous workout classes. Unless you have been consistently practicing Yoga and workout regularly, these movements are not natural or even suitable for our bodies and it can also hurt us and cause unnecessary injuries. Lepeng designed  a series of movement classes so that people can develop and maintain their strength, flexibility and vitality with little risk of any injuries. 

Qigong & Stick movement (75 minutes)

Lepeng designed this movement class to help people to enjoy movement in a way that feels good, flows the energy and trains the mind.  And you don’t have to go fast, be competitive and worry about injures. The class starts with 45-minutes gentle Qigong practice to warm up the body and open up major energy channels in the body, then you use a 6-feet wooden stick to stretch in ways that you would not be able to without it. The class ends with grounding and relaxation on the yoga mat with carefully selected soothing music. She truly believes this is a movement class almost everyone can benefit and enjoy.

*Qi Gong is a practice that allows us to experience and utilize a subtle energy called Qi or Prana. When Qi is abundant within us we feel physicaly strong, emotionally balanced and guided by inner clarity and vision. We can taste freedom.

Qi Gong & Yoga Flow (75 minutes)

This class begins with 45-minutes Qigong practice to open up energy channels and Qi flow in the body, then we move through a series of gentle yoga postures to strengthen and stretch the entire body. You will feel completely relaxed and rejuvenated after 10-minutes of shavasana (deep relaxation) at the end. The class sometimes concludes with guided meditation and affirmations.

Reiki Healing Circle (75 minutes)

We start the circle with 30-minutes gentle Qigong movement to open up your energetic pathways and calm your mind. The Reiki healing experience will be initiated with a short guided meditation and DEEPLY relaxing music. Then you simply lie down on a yoga mat or sit comfortably for another 30 to 45 minutes to allow the healing energy flow through you and around you. As the Reiki energy has its own intelligence and each experience is individually guided by the energy to address the specific needs of the participants, you will receive healing from the past and/or gain insights and guidance for  your current life situation. 
There is no physical touch and contact necessary for this healing experience.

Private Lessons

Private Qigong and Yoga lessons are also available for individuals who desire to change, grow and breaking the habit of being themselves (the old/conditioned self).

Even though I’ve gone to many wonderful yoga instructors in Los Angeles, I feel truly fortunate to have come across Lepeng.  She has such a calming, centered presence that I always leave her classes feeling healed and rejuvenated.  Even attending one class a week makes such a huge difference in my connection of mind, body, and spirit. It does not surprise me to see that she is a reiki therapist.  She has the ability to create a truly healing environment.  She is always tuned into the class, and seems to be really aware of what her students need or maybe just aware of what everyone needs.  She has a subtle way of guiding the class with a soothing voice. She doesn’t waste words as she allows you to check in with yourself.  On occasion, towards the end of class, it’s like she knows everyone is feeling happy, and she’ll say “…maybe put a smile on your face”:)  Her gentle humor combined with a focused yoga practice leave me feeling stronger, happier and healthier.  Not to mention, she plays great music!

Alicia Griffin 

I have participated in Lepeng’s Qi Gong, Stick Movement & Yoga class for approximately a year now. I came to her class after my open heart surgery with the desire to resume my yoga and Qi Gong practice in a group setting. Lepeng is a gifted teacher who creates a safe environment for each student to move, breathe and explore their own bodies while she leads the class forward.  The classes fit the abilities of different ages and physical abilities in a non-competitive flow.  As my recovery proceeded, there was and continues to be a safe path for me to improve and expand. Lepeng and her teaching have added to my daily life quality both physically and mentally. When I look around the class at the faces of the other students, I realize that I am not the only one who has this reaction. We all seem happy to be there.
