Senior Citizens, Inc. (SCI), a nonprofit dedicated to enhancing the quality of life for area seniors, received a grant to offer Qigong, pronounced (chee guhng), at the Thunderbolt and Port Wentworth Neighborhood Centers. Qigong is a Chinese system of physical and breathing exercises.

The classes are being taught by Lisa Moore, a professional Qigong instructor. The classes were made possible because of support from The Savannah Community Foundation by the Nora L. and Henry Cunningham Fund.

Moore has been providing an hour of instruction at each Center two times a week since October. Classes end in early February. Research shows that Qigong enhances sleep, boosts the immune system, increases certain neurotransmitters, and improves the quality of life.

This class is another example of many life enrichment activities taking place at the Centers every day. SCI has Neighborhood Centers in Port Wentworth, Thunderbolt and Hinesville. To learn more or to attend contact SCI at (912) 236-0363.
