My doctor said to keep doing what I am doing – qigong.” W.B., Paso Robles “I was so high-strung I felt like I was jumping out of my skin. The breathing and slow movements of qigong have had a calming effect and I can better deal with the stress of work and home life.” C.L., Templeton Faye invites you to come to your first class for free and discover how Tai Chi & Body in Balance can benefit you!
