Qigong Teacher Training

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 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, Chi Space is a Continuing

Education Accredited School with Yoga Alliance Australia.

 

Our 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 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 a starting point. It is by no means the end and teaching 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 an Integrative Qigong Teacher. This training can also be utilised to augment teachings in yoga and meditation, as well as for personal self-care and healing.

Integrative Qigong is a conscious and mindful based movement practice that incorporates theory from Classical Chinese Medicine as well as modern and traditional movements of Qigong, Tai Chi, Taoist Yoga, as well as incorporating mindfulness, breath-work and visualisation.

We offer several trainings, the place to begin is the Module 1, 3-day (18 hour) program. This Qigong Teacher Training focuses on one form, along with movements that prepare the body for qi flow and make up a typical 60-75 minute practice.
