Dragon & Tiger Chi Gung

4 Tuesday Evening Classes

July 24, 2012 - 7:00pm to August 28, 2012 - 9:00pm

Hilltown resident Michael Alterman will be offering an introductory course in Dragon & Tiger Chi Gung this summer at Earthdance in Plainfield.  Chi gung is a form of gentle exercise that balances, harmonizes and strengthens energy flow in the body.  It is related to tai chi, but is simpler and easier to learn, while providing many of the same health benefits.
