Chairs will also be available. Prepare to enter a zone of deep relaxation, rejuvenation, reflection, and inner peace. Fee: $20. Register with Lisa: 860-783-5597, or text 860-985-9719.

Five Animal Frolics Qi Gong: THE MONKEY & THE TIGER Friday, December 14, 1:00-5:00 pm
George Hoffman - We'll teach the Monkey and the Tiger, the shortest of the five movement sequences, together. The Monkey is quick witted, alert and nimble but conceals a watchful calm and focus. We will work to incorporate the Monkey's agility and flexibility with balanced, quick movements while maintaining an underlying inner peaceful calm. Play with the Monkey's sense of mischief and with its lightening speed and appreciate its internal element of stability. The Tiger is the most external and dynamic of the five - fierce and awesome, the king of the animals, externally strong, inwardly supple, deliberate and calculating. Tiger moves like a whirlwind yet is tranquil like the moon. We'll play with the spirited eyes and fierce claws of the animal and seek to replicate its awe inspiring power. Over time, continued practice of the Tiger will greatly increase our strength both internally and externally. Fee: $45. Call 860-742-5892 by December 12 to register. Limit 12 students.
