Jewish Qi Gong and Mindfulness
Join Nancy Fried-Tanzer and Robin Wald for an enjoyable hour of Jewish-themed Qi Gong and mindfulness. Together we will integrate Jewish wisdom with gentle physical postures, movement, breathing and guided mindfulness practices. This workshop offers an opportunity for improved health and vitality, relaxation, mental discipline, spiritual connection and deeper Jewish understanding. All ages, abilities and fitness levels welcome. No prior experience with Qi Gong, mindfulness or Jewish study required. Comfortable clothing and sneakers or bare feet are suggested, no mats required.

She is an instructor of Chronic Disease Self-Management Programs developed by Stanford University in addition to "Matter of Balance" (fall prevention strategies). She incorporates many of these strengthening and joint lubricating exercises into the warm-ups of her Qi Gong classes. Robin Wald, RYT, is a yoga and mindfulness instructor and Jewish educator.
