Springtime Qigong Classes


Tuesday May 21, 2019
7:00 PM
Pronounced “che-gong”, Qigong is a traditional Chinese mindful exercise system for cultivating and strengthening the body’s vital energy. Also known as “Chinese Yoga,” Qigong consists of a series of slow-flowing movements, which gently stretch muscles, tendons and ligaments. Similar to Tai Chi, these low-impact exercises heighten awareness of the mind-body-breath connection. Meditation and visualization are also a part of Qigong practice. Using the mind, the practitioner gathers, guides and circulates internal energy with graceful and precise movements. Qigong can be practiced by all age groups and can easily be adapted for the physically challenged. Everyone is welcome to join us for weekly classes by local resident Bianca Godoy. No previous experience or registration required.

Our instructor Bianca Godoy holds certifications to teach Qigong from the Supreme Science Qigong Center, the Chinese Health Qigong Association, and the Institute of Integral Qigong and Tai Chi. A Morristown resident, Godoy has been practicing Qigong, Yoga and Tai Chi for over 20 years.
