Qigong Class at the Library

November 29, 2023 @ 8:00 am - 9:00 am

Donna Bunte of Donna Bunte Whole Health will teach a qigong class at Perrot Library on Wednesday, November 29, from 8 to 9 am in the Youth Services Program Room, Radcliffe Children’s Library. The class will be repeated on Wednesday, December 13, 8 to 9 am. (This is not a series; please register for one or both classes.)

Qigong is a form of meditation in motion that is at least 2,000 years old. It is a very calming routine used to increase mindfulness, and it is also used for building strength, balance, flexibility, and resiliency. The practice of qigong can be done standing or sitting and can be practiced by almost anyone young or old.

Donna has been practicing Chinese medicine since 1996 when she graduated from Chinese medical school in New York City and became a licensed acupuncturist in New York and Connecticut. Qigong and tai chi were her first introduction to Chinese medicine and energy exercises in 1980 in New York City, years before she studied Chinese medicine. Donna has studied with a variety of teachers, including Robert Peng and Daisy Lee, and began teaching qigong in Greenwich in 2017.  She has taught classes locally since then, as well as online during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Please register for this free class.
