Foothills Wellness Center

This new class in our Fitness Center will incorporate Qigong, strengthening, mediation and yoga. This class is geared to all ages and gender, especially male golfers.

Qigong is a practice that typically involves moving meditation, slow flowing movement and deep rhythmic breathing that provides a calm meditative state of mind.

Classes are $10.00/person.

This class will be lead by instructor Dr. John Akers. Dr. Akers is a recently retired Wofford language professor and classical guitarist who has taught wellness classes at Wofford, the Spartanburg YMCA, and Zen Garden. Dr. Akers played and coached collegiate soccer, has practiced meditation over 40 years, and teaches a daily routine of yoga and core strengthening enhanced by Qigong energy play. Dr. Akers is also an avid golfer committed to carrying his own clubs, without a cart.
