Community Wellness

We know wellness is more than just the absence of illness. Our community wellness programs offer modern Western and traditional Eastern approaches to maintain your health.


There are many ways to achieve wellness. Our programs include educational lectures, exercise classes and more. Join us for an event to learn something new and improve your well-being.

Dayan Qigong Classes

Dayan Qigong is:

  • An ancient and widely practiced Qigong in China.
  • Proven to be safe and effective for all ages.
  • Certified by the Chinese government as one of the 10 types of Qigong with proven evidence of health benefits.

These classes are designed as a eight-week session, with two sessions available each year. You pay the tuition directly to your instructor. We offer a free introductory class at the beginning of each session. Call 650-988-3234 for more information, or Sign up for emails that alert you to upcoming CHI events.


Dietitian Services

Many Chinese dishes are high in salt. High-sodium diets can lead to health issues, including hypertension. The Chinese Health Initiative offers nutrition workshops to help you improve your diet. You can listen to our low-sodium diet workshop online, conducted in Mandarin by Barbara Chang, RD, Clinical Nutrition Manager of Nutrition Services.

Dietitian services are offered through our Health Library & Resource Center, located in the lobby area of our Mountain View campus. We offer sessions in English or Chinese. You’ll learn about simple changes in your diet that can allow you to keep enjoying your favorite food while improving your health.

  • The sessions in English are offered on the first and third Friday of each month, from 12:30 p.m. to 2 p.m. Call 650-940-7210 to schedule an appointment.
  • The Chinese speaking dietitian is available on the second Wednesday of each month from 10 a.m. to 12:30p.m and second Friday of each month from noon to 2:30 p.m. Please call us at 650-988-3234 to schedule an appointment.
