Qigong Classes Begin at Cancer Center for Improved Health

Wednesday, May 18, 2016

Qigong will soon be offered at the Beloit Cancer Center to introduce this natural self-healing practice to local cancer patients and others. Although the beginnings of Qigong traces back to ancient China the modern practice of this gentle exercise program has proven to be very effective to improve a person’s health.

 

Classes will be free and offered in 10-week sessions starting either Monday, June 6 from 8:30-9:30 a.m. or Thursday, June 9 from 5:30- 6:30 p.m. All classes will be held at the Beloit Cancer Center Community Room off Milwaukee Road and Lee Lane in Beloit.

 

Qigong is a gentle exercise system with relaxed exercise and regulation of mind and breath. It has gentle flowing stretches and sot, 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

 

The instructor for the classes is Nancy Mayhew, Tai Chi and Qigong Instructor. Nancy is a Wellness Coordinator and Manager through the National Wellness Institute.

 

For more information on these classes or to sign up, please call Beloit Cancer Center at 608-364-5253. Participants must register ahead of time due to limited space. Those with cancer will be registered as a priority, however others are welcome to sign up, as well.
