Qigong is the foundation to Tai Chi. It is relatively simpler than Tai Chi and has more healing than Ti Chi.
Qigong is the practice of moving meditation, using the body, mind, breath, sound vibrations and Qi (energy) to initiate positive transformation within the body, mind and spirit.
Regular practice can improve your health, immune system, spine, pelvic floor muscles, core strength, serenity, relaxation and inner joy.
Beginners classes start 29 Jan Wed. and 30 Jan Thu. (school term).
Water restrictions have been introduced in Christchurch to ensure there are enough supplies to fight fires.
The ban, the lowest of four levels, means water cannot be used outside between 3pm and 9pm, with use of hoses, sprinklers and garden irrigation systems allowed only on alternate days.
People living at odd-numbered addresses should water gardens on odd dates, even-numbered houses on even dates.

The service, run by regional council Environment Canterbury (ECan), is to be overhauled in a plan that will contribute to a planned 9.8 per cent rates increase – almost double what was previously forecast.

So these loyalty cards, I've yet to benefit from any of them so have stopped wasting my time with it, much to the surprise of the checkout operators.
These cards are to gather information about our individual shopping habits so that the supermarket can hit us up with 'deals' that fit our profiles. I prefer incognito shopping without a spy collecting my data and selling it off to the highest bidder!
How do you find them?
