Program description

Qigong (pronounced chee-gong) is an ancient Chinese exercise and healing technique that involves meditation, controlled breathing and movement exercises.

Exercise is an important component to maintaining a healthy brain. Due to the fact that Qigong can be performed standing or sitting, it is a physical conditioning program that is suitable for all ages and fitness levels. The soft, slow, gentle movements of Qigong practice stimulate the body to increase muscular stability, flexibility, and range of motion around all joints of the body.

Who can participate?

Individuals concerned about their memory, individuals living with cognitive change or dementia, care partners, family and friends are all welcome!

When is the program?

Qigong is currently being offered online via Zoom every Monday and Thursday from 1pm - 2pm and facilitated by George Picard from the Village of Healing.
