Qi Gong is a Chinese practice of rhythmic breathing combined with slow fluid methods to develop a calm mind and renewed energy. Qi Gong can be practiced by individuals no matter what their current fitness level may be. The session will be led by Debra Strelka, who holds a 5th degree black belt in karate and has practiced Qi Gong for 15 years. Please wear comfortable clothing.
As UWGB embarks on 360° of Learning, Cofrin Library begins 360° of Books!
We have a simple question: What’s your favorite book?
Our goal is to get 360 UWGB students, faculty, staff, and alumni to tell us their favorites. It could be something from your childhood, your most influential book, or something you’re reading now. We’ll share the results and see which books come out on top!
To tell us your favorite book:
- Watch for announcements and post your favorite book on the Cofrin Library Facebook page.
- Follow @CofrinLibraryGB for announcements on Twitter and tweet your favorite book with #360booksuwgb.
- Stop by the library and write it down on our display on the 5th floor.
- Or use this online form to tell us your favorite.
