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 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, this teacher training programs is only the beginning of your 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 a valuable form of continuing education for teachers of yoga, meditation and other self-care practices.

The Module 1 Modern Qigong Teacher Training program is accredited by the International Institute of Complementary Therapists and Nicole Lee Qigong is an Accredited Training Provider.

The program is focused on a modern form of Qigong, based on the integrative approach as taught by Lee Holden and other masters who teach contemporary approaches to this ancient healing practice. The training program covers all aspects, including how to communicate and teach a class, and is suitable for movement teachers, therapists, educators and personal practitioners.

Although the Module 1 is only 60-hours, it’s comprehensive. The purpose is to transmit the initial knowledge and skills needed to teach and share the practice. This course is intended to be the beginning of your journey into becoming a teacher and facilitator of Qigong. Depending on how you wish to share Qigong this may provide you with all the skills you require, for example you may wish to simply augment teachings in yoga and meditation, or use it for personal self-care and healing.

Teaching and sharing Qigong in a competent, skilled and proficient manner can only be achieved through mastery and commitment to personal development.

Modern Qigong is a conscious and mindful based movement practice that incorporates theory from Traditional Chinese Medicine, modern and traditional movements of Qigong, Tao Yin, Tai Chi, as well as incorporating mindfulness, breath-work and visualisation.

We offer several trainings, the place to begin is the Module 1, it’s a 60 hour program that comprises 36 contact training hours and 24 non-contact practice hours. This Qigong Teacher Training focuses on three modern qigong forms, along with postures/movements that prepare the body for qi flow and make up a typical 60-75 minute practice.
