Enjoy a quiet, mindful stroll through the woods at the North Carolina Arboretum. A silent hike takes us to scenic treasures on the arboretum property where we will do a restorative qigong practice. Qigong is a series of simple flowing movements that supports the body’s natural healing processes, promotes healthy circulation, invites inner calm, and releases tension from the body. Hikes will be mindfully-paced and qigong practice easy and accessible. Limited to 10 participants for healthy distancing.

Tai chi is a safe and effective form of meditative exercise consisting of relaxed and focused movements that clear the mind and relax the nervous system while improving balance, strength, flexibility, stability, coordination, joint health, memory and attentional skills. Video practices will be provided to assist participants in practicing on their own time between sessions or in the case of a missed session. REGISTER
