MARCH\APRIL – 24 Posture Therapeutic Qigong:

Although Qigong (Qi – breath or life force; Gong – exercise or work = breath work) is considered by many to be over 4,000 years old, the 24 Posture Therapeutic Qigong was created in 1958 as a modern exercise combining Chinese medicine and martial arts.  The Village of Healing and Wellness provides instruction in this easy, made for anyone, standing or seated form of healing exercise.  Join Alan as he teaches the postures in a fun and relaxed way!
