Introduction to Chi-Gong with Gwen Valencis
Saturday, Sept. 15 at 10 a.m.
Chi-Gong is an ancient Chinese exercise and healing technique that involves meditation, controlled breathing, and movement exercises. It is meditation-in-motion, clearing the body of energy blocks resulting in physical, mental, and emotional relief.
Based on the fact that Chi-Gong can help reduce stress, lower joint pain, build strength, and stamina, and enhance the immune system, people who can benefit from it most include those with anxiety, muscle aches, learning disabilities, heart disease, fatigue, and older adults that cannot perform intense exercise.
No equipment or mats required, please wear comfortable clothing. Seated modifications are available for comfort.
