Therapeutic Qigong

Our Therapeutic Qigong program is a two-level certification program designed to teach the theory and practical application of Therapeutic Qigong Therapy to health care professionals as well as lay people. Emphasis is placed on both the analytical/deductive and the intuitive approaches to comprehension and utilization of Therapeutic Qigong Therapy for self preservation, cultivation, regulation and clinical application. Certifications include: Therapeutic Qigong Practitioner & Therapeutic Qigong Therapist.

“Most people are so occupied by the external world that they don’t realize that there is a very rich world within themselves. In this stage, we relax, let go, and learn to appreciate that we have an internal universe.”

Eva Wong

Body

Students receive training in various movement exercises known to develop strength, flexibility, and to repair and promote a healthy body. These include stretching, inner massage, gentle, rhythmic forms of movement that mimic nature's healing cycles.

Mind

An essential part of Qigong training is development of one's mental health. Students are introduced to a series of techniques for developing a resilient, focused, calm mind. Meditation instruction is introduced within a body centred approach.

Breath

It is the breath that weaves the web of the life-force between the body and mind. Students gain a deeper insight into how breath work improves one's health, creates a healthy internal system, including gut health, and allows for a deeper state of wellness.

Our focus for the Therapeutic Qigong Training certificates is to re-aquaint the individual, first, to one's own ability to sense, feel, assess what is taking place in the body and mind, and to recognize one's innate ability to create harmony and balance in one's body, mind, and life, while bringing the awareness that one is not separate from the great mystery, cycles, web of life, but rather, deeply belonging to it.

The next focus of the training is to provide students with the tools to then faciliate this healing journey within the lives of their clients/communities

 

 

When one's body, mind and breath are aligned, only then can true, deep healing arise.
