LOCALS are being encouraged to try, for free, the ancient art of Qigong - a form of gentle exercise and moving meditation closely related to Tai Chi.

The free sessions, running from May 28 to June 3, will take place at a variety of locations across the local area, including Horfield Common, the Downs, St Andrews Park and Cotham Gardens.

Nicola Ley, artist and teacher from Ashley Down, set up ‘Qigong Bristol’ last year for local practitioners. She said: “We believe that Qigong is just so good for you that it is our mission to make it available to more and more people. What better place to do it in Bristol’s greenest spaces?”

Those attending the free sessions can learn some introductory movements and meditations, and also find out about regular classes. Sessions will run whatever the weather.
