JACKSON COUNTY LIBRARIES OFFER QIGONG AND TAI CHI CLASSES
Jackson County, Oregon (September 7, 2018) – Three Jackson County Libraries will offer free Qigong and Tai Chi classes this fall. Gentle and adaptable for any level, Qigong uses intention, relaxation, physical movement and breathing to maintain health and calm the mind. Tai Chi was originally developed for self-defense, but has evolved into a graceful and meditative form of exercise that's often practiced to reduce stress and address a variety of other health conditions.
