Sharing, instructing and teaching Qigong is both an art and a science. This approach to Qigong Teacher Training is a modern one, historically these teachings would be transmitted from Master to Student over a period of many years. Similar to an apprenticeship – ongoing training and process of personal experience and mastery.
We are very fortunate to now have this knowledge more freely and readily available, although that doesn’t mean that the journey into sharing and teaching Qigong is any less of an odyssey.
Qigong is a practice of mastery, our teacher training programs are only the beginning of the journey into teaching this amazing self-care practice. Qigong Teacher Training students are accepted via application only, there are 8 spaces available in each training event. These trainings are also a valuable form of continuing education for teachers of yoga, meditation and other self-care practices.
Our Modern Qigong Teacher Training is focused on the integrative form, based on the modern approach as taught by Lee Holden and other masters who teach integrative/modern approaches to this ancient healing practice. Our programs covers all aspects, including how to communicate and teach a class, and is suitable for movement teachers, therapists, educators and personal practitioners.
The training that we offer is comprehensive although it is by no means the end! Teaching and sharing Qigong in a competent, skilled and proficient manner can only be achieved through mastery and commitment to personal development.
Module 1 is the beginning of your journey into becoming a Qigong Teacher. This training can also be utilised to augment teachings in yoga and meditation, as well as for personal self-care and healing.
