The Center for Continuing Education at Texas A&M University-Kingsville provides a number of classes each semester geared toward improving the individual. This fall, two of the classes include Reiki and belly dancing, bringing Asian flavor to Kingsville.

Reiki (pronounced Rye-key) is a complimentary form of Japanese medicine which transfers positive energy from the instructor to the participant. Practitioners have been known to feel increased energy, vitality and an overall healthier well-being.  

During the eight-week course, the instructor will demonstrate how to conduct Reiki in three courses, representing different skill levels: initiation and theory, practical application of techniques, increasing energy deep relaxation and overall peace. The Reiki course begins Tuesday, Sept. 4, and will be held every Tuesday and Thursday from 6 to 8 p.m. through Thursday, Oct. 25, in room 215 of Cousins Hall. 

Belly dancing is a Middle Eastern dance practice that is a great way to stay fit while maintaining elegance and beauty. It has been practiced throughout West Asia and North Africa by both men and women for centuries. With most movements confined to the hip and abdominal areas, this dance form creates a visually striking spectacle that is sure to attract curiosity and intrigue. The alluring art is a great way to tone muscle and improve posture with a dance that works with the body. 

Belly dancing begins Wednesday, Sept. 5, and continues every Monday and Wednesday from 6:30 to 8 p.m. through Wednesday, Oct. 24. The class is held in the dance studio in the Health and Recreation Building. 

The cost of each course is $75 for eight weeks. Texas A&M-Kingsville faculty and staff receive a $10 discount and university students may take the courses for only $45.
