The LAHBNP will be sponsoring a Qigong (pronounced Chee-gong) on Friday, August 30, 2013 at 2 PM at the Atwater Community Center. Qigong is an ancient Chinese practice that can help take away stress, pain, and sickness from your body and leave you with more energy. Qigong will bring your mind, body and heart energy together to achieve balance through active meditation and sitting meditations. When the body’s energy is in balance, the body is able to maintain a healthy physical, mental and emotional state. Qigong consists of easy, gently movements which can be done by anyone. The leader will be Rhonda Battisto, Spring Forest Qigong Certified Instructor and Master Healer and Director of the Dayton’s Bluff Senior LAHBNP. There is no charge for this event but please register for the event at 974-8737.
