Starting In April 2017
It is an ancient Chinese tradition to practice Kung Fu outdoors for the health benefits of fresh air, sunshine and being close to nature. The Japanese when feeling ill go into nature in whats called ‘Forest Bathing‘ for the scientifically proven health benefits of being outdoors.
As Canadians we suffer from being cooped up indoors during the brutal winters which lowers immunity and causes depression.
Well the spring is coming and we should make an effort to be outdoors as much as possible.
Kung Fu in the Park is a great way to get fit, healthy, and happy. We will be going all spring, summer and fall from April to October.
Instructor Stefan Verstappen teaches in a relaxed and informal manner and tailors the lessons according to the fitness level and age of each participant.
