RESIDENTS of a Ross-shire commuity are being invited to try qigong – and help keep a class running regularly.

Garve and District Development Company has suspended classes meantime as it assesses whether there is enough demand to continue.

Qigong is a system of coordinated body-posture and movement, breathing, and meditation used for the purposes of health, spirituality, and martial-arts training. It is practised by millions of people around the world.

It is viewed throughout Asia as a practice to cultivate and balance qi, which can be roughly translated as life energy.

The group posted: "We need more takers for qigong to continue. At least four participants must be booked for a class to go ahead. Please share with your friends in the surrounding areas and encourage them to give it a try with you.

"If a different day or time would suit you better, let us know. Any questions, please ask.

"The class will be suspended until we receive enough bookings to go ahead."

Reviews of the class have been positive with comments ranging from "so relaxing" to "great for community spirit and I get to meet more lovely people".
