We are happy to offer a new Qigong class for nine weeks, beginning
on March 1 and running through April 26. Join Marcy Hickey on Thursday
mornings, from 8:45 – 9:45 am. Qigong is a holistic
system of coordinated body posture and slow flowing movement, deep rhythmic
breathing, and a calm, meditative state of mind. With roots in Chinese medicine, philosophy, and martial arts, qigong is traditionally
viewed as a practice to cultivate and balance qi, translated as life
energy. Qigong is now practiced throughout China and worldwide for recreation,
exercise and relaxation, and preventive medicine. A trial class was very
well-received. Class registrations begin on February 6 for Enfield
residents, February 13 for non-residents and will be accepted through February
23. The nine-week class fees are $36 for Enfield residents and $45 others.
