Shaolin Qi Gong Level I

Qi Gong is a light exercise designed to improve your overall health by increasing the available energy in your body and mind. When practiced properly it increases the amount of oxygen you ingest and distributes it to the deepest levels of cells in your body. This releases more energy, relaxes your mind, and reduces consumption of energy. Open to adults 17+.
