Weekly Qigong Classes in Two Dutchess Locations: “No experience is necessary—your practice is based upon never exceeding your own capacity.”
Lorraine Hughes, owner of Empowered By Nature, is now offering weekly qigong classes in two Dutchess County locations. Qigong is a mind-body-spirit technique that combines breath, posture and intention with simple movements. It is designed to have a powerful holistic effect on centering and cultivating life force, Hughes says.
“No experience is necessary—your practice is based upon never exceeding your own capacity,” she says. “Practicing qigong on a daily basis is most beneficial, and taking a class on a weekly basis will help reinforce your daily practice. Consistency is key when you’re adapting to a new modality. As I’m offering one class every Friday during the day and another on Tuesday evenings, practitioners will have the opportunity to be more consistent in their practice.”
Her qigong classes will be offered Fridays from 10 to 11 a.m. at Sandy Dutchess Yoga, in Wappingers Falls, and Tuesdays from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. at Sacred Space Healing Arts Studio, in Beacon.
