Exploring Asian Health Exercises at the Southern Saratoga YMCA

Thursday, January 12, 2012

I am excited to attend  a special workshop being held at the Southern Saratoga YMCA on January 21st from 2:30 - 4:30 pm called Exploring Asian Health Exercises.  Taught by Sal Casano, Certified Tai Chi/Qigong Instructor and Veronica Casano, Reiki Master,  this workshop will offer the following sampling of Asian healing traditions:

Tai Chi Chi: A movement exercise focusing on balance and circulation of chi or internal energy.

Crane Animal Qigong: A beautiful set of graceful movements based on the movements of the crane. These movements connect the mind, body and breath.

Sitting/Standing Meditation: Smile and follow your breath as you experience visualizations designed to promote a peaceful and relaxing mind-body connection.

Exercises/Massage Techniques for the Hands: Exercises to increase circulation (important during the winter months). Massage to soothe and relax the tendons, muscles and joints in the hands.

This is a fundraiser for the YMCA's Reach Out to Youth Scholarship program which allows children and families across the Capital District, who otherwise would not be able to afford YMCA programs and services, to participate fully.  The cost is $30.

For more information, please contact Lori Donato at (518) 371-2139 x5532 or by email at LDonato@cdymca.org.
