Qi Gong for Spring
Tuesdays, March 5, 12, 19, and 26
“Qi Gong for Spring” is all about growth, transformation, creativity, and abundance.
Spring represents a time of awakening when nature is waking from winter hibernation with new life and blooming into a new beginning. The spring season is a great time to enliven and awaken our energy as well as the perfect time for cleansing and rejuvenation.
In this workshop, we will focus on the Swimming Dragon style of Qi Gong.
The dragon is associated with both strength and flexibility. This is a powerful workout and cultivates a healthy, strong body.
We will also focus on transformation, letting go of the old and bringing in the new.
These free sessions will be led by Maria Patrick, certified health coach and Qi Gong instructor. Participants should wear comfortable clothing and may bring a yoga mat.
Registration is required: online or call 518-810-0314.
Program starts at 7 p.m. each Tuesday in March.
