Whitney: Qi Gong on the Rocks

March 29, 2014 - 1:00pm to 2:00pm
Qi Gong in action.

Qi gong (pronounced chi gung) is a wellness system that is over 2,500 years old. Qi gong involves aligning breath, movement and awareness for exercise and meditation. With roots in Traditional Chinese Medicine, martial arts and philosophy, qi gong is traditionally considered to be a means to cultivate and balance internal energy. The exercises involve breathing techniques, postures and a focus on directing energy properly through the body. Qi gong is accessible and easy to learn. People of all fitness levels will feel work in the poses. Meet at the Towash Day-Use Area.

Certified Qi Gong Master Practitioner Martha Fiddes will instruct the program. Ms. Fiddes is a professional physical therapist who owns and operates North Texas Qi Gong in Arlington.

This program is part of a series called Saturday Morning Wellness on the Rocks.

Bring drinking water. Wear loose comfortable clothing that allow a full range of motion. Qi gong is excellent for families with children.
