Energize your body and mind with traditional qi gong in this early morning class.

We’ll explore the Five Animal Frolics and incorporate some movements from Tai Chi Chuan. No experience necessary. This is a standing practice; please wear comfortable clothes. To register contact Sue Driscoll, sdriscol@middlebury.edu. Please bring a check for $48 payable to the instructor. The Wellness Committee makes this class available to the college community at a reduced rate.
