Healthy minds and bodies

Lois Rodgers, front right, follows the motions of Health and Wellness group leader Morris Burch, back right, during the group's morning exercises Tuesday at the New London Senior Center. Burch uses the practice of qigong to help the seniors at the center with their breathing and flexibility. It is a practice of aligning body, breath, and mind for health, meditation, and martial arts training. With roots in Chinese medicine, philosophy, and martial arts, qigong is traditionally viewed as a practice to cultivate and balance qi (chi) or what has been translated as "life energy."
