  1. Gentle Acupressure Qi Gong to Spark Your Day - Seymour

    April 22, 2019, 1:30 PM - 3:00 PM @ Seymour Center

Qi Gong is made up of physical postures (moving or stationary), breathing techniques, and focused intentions that serve as an excellent form of exercise because of their gentle and soothing nature. Anyone can do Qi Gong, regardless of age, ability, flexibility, or activity level! We will be incorporating acupressure and stimulation to certain reactive points on the body into a Qi Gong routine to significantly improve balance, relieve pain, encourage mobility and reduce stress.
