Health Qigong is easy to access toward learning any form of Qigong; from the old school classics to modern-day adaptations thereof.
It is well suited for individuals who struggle with finding a routine, have an overactive spirit, or mastering the combined action of meditation, breathwork, and technicalities associated.
Not interested in teaching. You are welcome to train and receive merit without having to teach.
The methodology used is simplified steps toward acquisition. First, learn the sequence, next fix technicalities while applying the 3 regulation adjustments.
Our uniqueness; besides over 30 years in Qigong practice? We take it a step further by applying the “old school” principles for profound therapy in action.
Start at the beginning regardless of experience, It is always beneficial to approach with the view that you would be teaching one day. Always ask the question how well do you know the technicalities to teach it if required to do so.
