Qi gong practice resumes at Wyomissing Public Library

Apr 03, 2021

On Tuesday morning April 6th at 9 AM the Wyomissing Public Library will resume its weekly hour-long practice of Qi Gong, an ancient system of coordinated body-posture and movement, breathing, and meditation. The practice, which is scheduled for every Tuesday at 9 AM, will be held either in the library community room or on the lawn at the library at 9 Reading Boulevard in Wyomissing, depending on the weather. Face masks must be worn and social distancing will be in place. Participants should wear comfortable clothing.

Jay Umble, a Certified Qigong Instructor based in West Reading, will lead the practice, as he has in the past.. Mr. Umble is a student of Francesco Garri Garripoli, a world-renowned QiGong instructor and author. According to Umble’s website (, he is “passionate in sharing the life benefits of Qigong practice and Mindfulness meditation.  My workshops quickly demonstrate how accessible Qigong and Mindfulness meditation are for every one of all ages.  I teach that when we find our breath through Qigong practice and Mindfulness meditation practice, we find that often elusive peace that is within all of us.”

There is a $10 fee for the practice, which will be divided between the library and Mr. Umble; it is open to the public, but registration is required: email [email protected], or call the library at 610-374-2385.
