Qigong for Heart Health at Prairiewoods

Qigong is a gentle exercise involving whole body movement, deep breathing and mental focus. The purpose of qigong is to cultivate energy, or qi, in order to improve health and enhance overall well-being. Dr. Aihan Kuhn, a Chinese medical doctor trained in both Western and Traditional Chinese Medicine, has selected certain qigong movements and combined them into a series she believes benefits the heart. In this four-week series (Aug. 5, 12, 19 and 26) at Prairiewoods (120 East Boyson Road in Hiawatha), we will learn how to perform this special qigong set. Facilitator Gerry Hopkins has been practicing martial arts for more than 30 years and studying tai chi and qigong for more than 20. He has taught tai chi and qigong for 15 years and has studied with Dr. Kuhn since 2013. The cost of the four-week series is $50.
