Qi Gong and the Fish Creek Wellness Showcase

Wednesday, June 22, 2016 – 7:00 – 8:30 pm
Fish Creek Environmental Learning Centre, Shannon Terrace, Fish Creek Provincial Park (13931 Woodpath Rd SW, Access via 130 Ave and 37 St SW)

Presented by Diane Smith, Spring Forest Qi Gong Certified Instructor

Qi Gong (pronounced Chi Gong) is a way of enriching and supporting the life energy that flows through all people and all things. It is an ancient form of exercise derived in China that features recurring movements that help to unify physical, mental and spiritual aspects in participants. This system can be beneficial for reducing stress, alleviating the effects of illness, and improving and maintaining physical well-being. Learn about the general principles and history of Qi Gong, follow along as Spring Forest Qi Gong Certified Instructor Diane Smith leads you in simple movements, and learn some of the basic exercises that you can practice at home.

In addition to Qi Gong, Wellness programs include Yoga and Guided Meditation sessions, led by Gwen Draude Woolverton and Naomi Parker.

We are also pleased to welcome Sylvia Prochownik and Jim Pescott to the Fish Creek Wellness Showcase, local artists who have participated in Friends of Fish Creek programs to help share the joy of painting with community members.

The Wellness Showcase is the perfect opportunity to learn about these opportunities and meet the instructors.

Registration required. Free to Friends members and $5 for non-members.
