FREE QI GONG CLASS SUNDAY

Dr. May Trieu will conduct a free class on qi gong (pronounced chee goong), an ancient Chinese exercise that promotes health and healing. The class will be from 10 – 11 a.m. Sunday in Frenchtown in the old Planning and Natural Resources building.
Qi gong, which has been practiced in China for at least 4,000 years, is designed to build the "qi"or "chi"energy in the body and to increase its flow by combined movement, breathing and visualization. Qi gong is said to strengthen organs against disease and to reduce stress.
In China today there are some 90 million people practicing qi gong. Tai Chi, one form, and qi gong began to experience popularity in the United States in the '60s and '70s as the search for alternatives to Western medicine began to emerge.
Qi gong is practiced by people of all ages since it is a very low impact exercise.
Trieu, a medical doctor and acupuncturist, is a master of qi gong. She has been trying to offer free classes in the community and hopes this will be part of an ongoing series..
Turn into Frenchtown by the post office, make a left past McDonald's and go over the bridge. The class will be held on the second floor of the two-story building the previously housed DPNR across from Frenchtown Tires.
Everyone is welcome. For more information call 774-1420.
