Qigong ‘the new yoga’ offered to veterans across Cumbria via DMWS

Defence Medical Welfare Service (DMWS) are excited to offer Qigong sessions to veterans across Cumbria along side the welfare service DMWS provides. Qigong, labelled the ‘new yoga’ is an ancient practice with heaps of rewards including helping with physical and mental well-being.

This is the chance for veterans to engage in something new, benefit from improved well-being, and physical health, develop a new skill and meet other veterans. The sessions will be at not cost to the veteran and have been made possible by funding from the AFCTF Positive Pathways programme.

Qigong Instructor Claire Gray will begin providing the Qigong sessions from April.

Qigong is an ancient Chinese practice that combines the mind, body and breath. It has many benefits including lowering blood pressure, increasing energy, improving balance, increasing bone density, helps manage pain, and strengthens the internal organs of the body.
