FREE CHINESE EXERCISE-MEDITATION CLASS OFFERED

Dr. May Trieu will offer a free class in the traditional Chinese exercise-and-meditation practice of qi gong on Sunday, March 11, at 10 a.m. in the Frenchtown building behind the Veterans Drive post office. Anyone interested in learning more about this health practice, followed today by some 90 million persons in China, is invited to attend.
Qi gong combines exercise in slow, graceful movements with mental concentration and breathing to increase the participant's vital energy. It is part of traditional Chinese medicine, which holds that sickness arises when the flow of one's vital energy is blocked. "The practice of qi gong frees the energy, regulates the person, and strengthens his or her health, preventing diseases," Trieu says, describing it as "a very complete system of exercise that benefits all the organs and systems of the body."
According to Trieu, who is a medical doctor and acupuncturist as well as a master of qi gong, the practice of the discipline "will help you find the physical and mental balance that you are seeking through the combination of breathing, relaxation and inward gaze."
For further information, attend the free class, or call Trieu at 774-1420.
