The benefits of practicing Qigong?

This type of exercise is all the more beneficial, no matter what your age, since we move gently and firmly on our feet (no swinging on the arms).

Where did I complete my Qigong training?

I am in the process of becoming a Qigong teacher since 2020. I started my education with the Qigong school White Tiger Qigong which was developed by Master Tevia Feng and combines ancient Taoist Qigong, Chinese medicine and modern sports science.

I am currently with the school Forest Rock Taiji & Qigong with Master Pete Caughey. The latter school offers a gentler approach to Qigong and Master Pete Caughey also has a lot of knowledge in Tai Chi and Chinese medicine, having been an accupuncturist for many years.
