The: 11/17: Self-Care for Caregivers: Explore the Benefits of Qi Gong

Are you a caregiver? Join me , Ms. Liu, and AARP-CA for a free event this Thursday: “Self-Care for Caregivers: Explore the Benefits of Qi Gong” 

QiGong, a meditative practice of gentle stretching, movement and breathing, has shown the potential to lower stress and anxiety.
For caregivers, finding time for self-care can be very difficult, and yet it is so necessary for promoting overall well-being and to avoid stress and burnout. Professor Kathy Yep, a certified mindfulness facilitator and a practitioner of Dayan Qi Gong, will engage in a conversation with AARP California volunteer and caregiver Lily Liu about the importance of caring for yourself as a caregiver and the benefits of meditative practices like Qi Gong. Dr. Yep will also provide a short demonstration of qigong’s gentle, flowing movements and breathing technique. 

Please do not opt out of event-related emails, as you will be emailed a link to join the class via Zoom prior to the event.
