Mario’s Talk: “Discover the Healing Power of Qigong”

Qigong (chee gong) is a self-healing exercise you need to try!

Practicing Qigong is a way to experience a longer, more active life. The gentle, fluid movements increase energy, open the joints, stretch muscles, and enhance balance. The movements are specifically designed to restore youthful vigor, energy, and overall well-being. Qigong is very effective and easy to learn. Movements can be done either standing or sitting.
