Introduction to Qigong

Introduction to Qigong:
Offered Tuesday, February 9 and 16, 10:30-noon

Qigong is the art of learning energy placement through meditative, mindful, focussed movement. Five element theory, sacred geometry, energy meridians and quantum theory are utilized. It is very helpful in rebalancing the mind, emotions, body and spirit for improved health and well-being. The practice in class carries over to the practice outside of class in that everything is energy. Qi is the universal life force all around us and when we are able to feel it our own life is experienced in another way and it becomes a way of life. Wear loose clothing, bring an open mind and learn this 3000 year old ancient art. The best way to understand qigong is to experience it.

Please call Annette Mullett 734-658-5755 to reserve your spot.
Please arrive 10 -15 minutes early in that class will start promptly at 10:30.
Cost for these 2 classes is by donation.
Future times and classes to be determined by class needs.
