Qigong Outdoors
Thursday, September 29 - 9:30am | The Village Green Across from the Library


Qigong is a moving meditation that is simple, easy to learn, and can be done by everyone, at any age and fitness level. Just mirror the movements of the instructor and reduce tension, improve breathing, and increase flexibility. Do this outside and get a boost of fresh, balancing energy. 

Anyone (age 16 & up) is invited to sign a waiver and participate.

Class will be moved indoors, if space is available, during poor weather.

If you have a disability and require accommodation in order to fully participate, please contact library staff.
