Qigong at Grace Cottage Hospital
On Saturday, April 10 Grace Cottage Hospital will host a workshop to teach the basic principles of qigong, a Chinese practice that promotes overall health and well-being.
"Qi" (pronounced chee) is the energy or natural force that fills the universe and all living beings. Westerners refer to Qi as the aura or electromagnetic field surrounding the body. "Gong" means to work.
The Saturday Qigong introductory workshop will be held at the hospital Community Wellness Center, 133 Grafton Road in Townshend from 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Participants should dress comfortably in layers and indoor footwear and should bring a brown bag lunch or a potluck dish to share.
The cost for the workshop is $50. Pre-registration is required by calling 365-3649.
