Join Anita Wong of the YS Traditional Chinese Medicine & Martial Arts College for an introduction to Qigong. Qigong is a meditation in motion, and a simple but effective system to enhance overall health and fitness. This exercise incorporates breathing techniques with body movements and directs energy throughout the meridians. Through this four-session course, you will relax the body and mind, strengthen bones, enhance balance, and improve blood circulation. This series is suited for beginners and experienced students, with easy-to-follow steps and deep relaxation. Class starts with Qigong practice, followed by some Taichi steps to close.

Note for returning students: Anita will practice some of the same steps from previous classes plus some new ones.  Using steps of the prior series will act as an introduction to new students and a review for the returning students to deepen and strengthen their knowledge.  New movements will be added to expand returning students’ practice.

Presented in the Guides Classroom. Online pre-registration is required.

*Due to conflicts with other programs, there will be a schedule change on April 24, and the session will be presented from 1 to 2 pm that day in the same location.
