Tai Chi and Qigong offer a simple, yet powerful way to relax and take care of yourself physically, spiritually, and emotionally. Tai chi is a Chinese tradition of gentle, flowing exercise and stretching accompanied by deep breathing, keeping the body in constant motion. Qigong is the Chinese mind/body art of cultivating, circulating and building energy through physical movement, posture control, and meditation. A second series of classes runs May 27, June 3, June 10, 2016.
