Tara Farley
Mondays at 10:00AM

September 24, October 1, 15, 22, & 29
Large Meeting Room Downstairs

Qigong is a medical based practice that combines movement, breath, and intention to create a balanced state of being. Qigong is a practice that aids in digestion, calms the nervous system, balances the hormones, and promotes better sleep patterns.

Please bring a bottle of water and wear comfortable clothes. This series will focus on learning different exercises and breathing techniques that support the well being of the heart, increase the breathing capacity of the lungs, aid in the detoxification of the liver, as well as bringing our thoughts into a state of neutrality to release worry and anxiety. Qigong can be practiced standing or sitting. Registration is not necessary.

Tara Farley is a certified Qigong teacher as well as a yoga teacher and energy therapist.
