Meditation and Movement for Relaxation and Self-Healing: Participants are invited to explore and have fun while learning the basic techniques to relax and center themselves. The session will include a guided meditation, breath practice and movement exercise that can heal, relax and energize the body. Included are easy-to-follow Qigong exercises to cleanse and activate the lymphatic system, regulate circulation, restore the organs and cleanse the liver.

ARTFUL HEALTH is a series of programs presented by the Bronx Museum focused on an array of health issues of extreme relevance to the Bronx community. Considering the prevalence of health conditions such as asthma, obesity, diabetes, sexually transmitted infections, and mental illness in the borough, we hope to provide safe, engaging, and dynamic public spaces for South Bronx residents to learn more about these issues, gain access to health resources, and share their experiences through diverse art forms to which they may not otherwise have access.
