Portage Library Wellness Series continues with "Qigong and Tai Chi for Stress Relief" Dec. 13

HOUGHTON -- The Portage Lake District Library will host its monthly program in the Natural Health and Wellness series from 6:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 13.

Darlene Basto will present "Qigong and Tai Chi for Stress Relief," and she will explain and demonstrate how these practices are used to help us relax and revitalize. Participants will learn and practice qigong and tai chi movements as well as learn self-massage, breathing, relaxation, and meditation techniques.

Everyone is encouraged to wear comfortable, loose clothing and flat, slip-resistant shoes, and to bring a water bottle for rehydration afterwards.

Basto is a certified Qigong and Tai Chi instructor and teaches weekly classes in Calumet. Her workshops and teachings focus on health and on practices to relieve stress that allow the body to work with its own natural healing abilities.

The Natural Health and Wellness series is held on the second Thursday of each month. All library programs are free, and everyone is welcome. For more information, please call the library at 482-4570 or visit
