     Bill Wrenn will do a free demonstration of Qigong on Wednesday, April 23 at 11 a.m. Qigong is an ancient Chinese health care system that integrates physical postures, breathing techniques and focused intention. The gentle, rhythmic movements of Qigong reduce stress, build stamina, increase vitality, and enhance the immune system. It has also been found to improve cardiovascular, respiratory, circulatory, lymphatic and digestive functions. Qigong can be performed standing or seated.
     Call 203-594-3620 to register for this or any other activities.
