Eastern Philosophy & Qigong Where:
Johnston Rec Center - Oak Room Time:
Eastern mystics have practiced longevity exercises for millennia with the goal of prolonging life and ultimately achieving immortality. What are the philosophies that lead them to these practices?
Part lecture, part practice; this class aims to demystify the Eastern philosophies of Yin and Yang, The Tao, The Five Elements and more in a classroom setting. Learn basic Qigong exercises and meditations that begin the practices that lead to health and longevity. The exercises are effective and easy to learn. Using slow, gentle, graceful rocking and stretching motions combined with relaxed breathing, Qigong can help calm your mind, reduce tension and anxiety, regulate heart rate and blood pressure, boost energy and lower blood pressure. For the exercises, participants may choose to sit or stand as needed.
