A one-day Qigong workshop is planned Saturday, Feb. 10, from 11:15 a.m. to 5:15 p.m. at The Yoga Center, 14 S. Dakota St., Uptown Butte.
Taught by Nancy Oyer, of Butte, “One Thousand Hands Buddha” is a meditation with 14 hand movements, practiced in a sitting position.
The cost is $60. That includes a manual published by the Ling Gui International Healing School in Portland, Ore. Class size is limited to 13. To reserve your spot, send payment to Oyer, Box 146, Butte, MT, 59701. Call 406-490-8989 for details.
A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the “Active Teens” program at the Butte YMCA.
Certified to teach by the Ling Gui school, Oyer has studied and practiced internal martial arts for 20 years. The Ling Gui school says, “Practicing these elegant hand movements can lead to a sense of connectedness with the universe and feelings of physical, emotional, and spiritual opening.” Oyer said: “I can do this form in 20 to 35 minutes. I find it reduces anxiety and worry generated from everyday life.”
