Qigong is a gentle exercise system with relaxed exercise and regulation of mind and breath. It has gentle flowing stretches and soft, rhythmic movement performed with focus. It improves all of the functions of the body including the digestive, nervous and immune system. It also improves core strength, posture and increases flexibility. It can be practiced either standing or sitting and all ages and abilities are welcome. 

Tai Chi is a centuries-old Chinese martial art that descends from qigong. It involves a series of movements performed in a slow, focused manner and accompanied by deep breathing.

Tai Chi has both physical and mental benefits. If done regularly, it improves muscle tone, flexibility, balance and coordination. Many older people find that it boosts their energy, stamina, and agility, sharpens their reflexes, and gives an overall sense of well-being.

Space is limited. Registrartion is $50 per eight week session for community members. Sessions are free for cancer patients and their caregivers, and Beloit Health System employees.

To register, please call 608-362-5253. All classes are held at the Beloit Cancer Center, 1670 Lee Lane, Beloit.
