A Taste of Qigong

Join us for Qigong with Dale Butler at the Senior Center on Tuesdays through September 6 starting at 10:30am. NO Class on August 9 and 16. Qigong (“chee-gung”) is the practice of cultivating mental and physical balance through the coordination of breath, movement and awareness.

Please register at 617-730-2770.

The next session will begin on September 20.
