QiGong is an ancient mindful body-movement and energy healing practice that transforms stress into vitality and brings energy and relaxation into the mind and body through breath work, stretches, acupressure, and flow movements. Anybody, at any age or fitness level, can practice QiGong to assist in recovering from illness, releasing tension and stress, and cultivating inner peace. The benefits are visible quite from the beginning.
QiGong is also known for its abundant health benefits including reducing inflammation, improving circulation, strengthening the immune system, managing stress, anxiety and depression, and preventing or reducing the progression of arthritis. Join Marga for a relaxing yet energizing practice, and learn to sustain your wellbeing and become your own healer. Contact Marga at [email protected] or www.margafripp.com.
