Join us tomorrow, March 20th at 10:30am for a makeup class in QiGong. This class, presented by Diana Wells, certified and licensed QiGong Healer and Teacher. Can’t make it tomorrow? We have classes on 4/27, and 5/4 as well.

Qigong “is a form of gentle exercise composed of movements that are repeated a number of times, often stretching the body, increasing fluid movement (blood, synovial and lymph) and building awareness of how the body moves through space.”

Feel energized and empowered. Reduce stress, anxiety and depression. Know a deep sense of peace and well-being. Activate your inner resources.

Space is limited so please call today (518) 235-2570 and reserve a spot for the 4/27, and 5/4 classes.
