Jim Roselando: Last Class of 2011

Date: 12/19/11
Subject: Last Class 2011!

Hello,

First I would like to send a big THANK YOU to everyone for making this semester at MIT nothing short of fantastic.  I truly enjoy sharing this art and to be able to exercise with such a nice group of dedicated people is wonderful.  I would also like to thank everyone such a generous and thoughtful Xmas Card!  Tonight will be our last Qigong session for the semester.  We are going to finish off 2012 with a one hour Wuji Zhuang.  I look forward to working out with everyone tonight and would like to wish you a very Merry Xmas & Happy Holiday season.   

We will be off for the next two Monday nights returning in three weeks.  For those who have a little extra free time over the holiday's I am providing you with a number of links to some scientific research papers on the subject of Qigong and internal health.  Merry Xmas and Happy Holiday's!
