FLC Seniors Qigong

Qigong for SeniorsQigong (Chee Gong) is available for all FLC Seniors members.

Qigong is an ancient Chinese Health Care System that integrates physical postures, breathing techniques, meditations and focused intention. The gentle, rhythmic movements of Qigong reduce stress, build stamina, and increase vitality. It has been found to improve cardiovascular, respiratory, circulatory, lymphatic and digestive functions.

People do Qigong to maintain health, heal their bodies, calm their minds, and reconnect with their spirit. It also creates a balanced lifestyle, which brings greater harmony, stability.
