Breathe in the world; exhale peace! Ixtapa Zihuatanejo welcomes Master Charles Kim and Ms. Jennifer Kim from The Peace School in Chicago, Illinois, who will be our special guests for the Celebration of Peace, courtesy of Viceroy Hotel in Zihuatanejo.
The International Association for World Peace, known as The Peace School, is a non-profit, equal opportunity educational organization headquartered in Chicago since 1972. It has no political or religious affiliations.
The Peace School’s mission is to help people of all ages practice peace in everyday life. By attaining peace in mind, body and spirit, we create the foundation for a broader peace in our families, schools, communities, nations and world.
Peace Yoga is the perfect combination of basic stretches, yoga postures, breath work, meditation and relaxation, all geared to create harmony within the mind, body and spirit. The Peace Yoga movements are designed to stretch and tone muscles, loosen stiff joints, help correct poor posture, improve balance and leave you feeling agile and refreshed.
Master Charles Kim will conduct a class in Yoga for Peace for kids, and a viral workshop for youth in Ixtapa Zihuatanejo.
A lifelong meditator, Master Charles Kim, who is president of The Peace School, is a 9th degree black belt in Traditional Tae Kwon Do and teaches these classes, as well as Peace Yoga, and Peace Breathing Meditation. He shares some of his engaging stories in his book, Peace Breathing: Lessons on Achieving Peace in Everyday Life (Amika Press 2012). See: Master Charles Kim- bio.
Peace Breathing Meditation is an easy-to- practice form of meditation suited to today’s hectic lifestyles. Peace Breathing Meditation is based on scientific principles and is not associated with a religion. It combines the vital energy of breath with the powerful energy of thought to calm your mind and reduce stress.
Ms. Jennifer Kim is a director of The Peace School in Chicago, and founder of Peace Day Chicago.
