Qigong instructor certification Course
“Activate your peaceful Warrior”
Teaching QiGong is an art and a science. Our approach in this immersion is similar to an apprenticeship. As you deepen in your own practice and mastery, you will naturally learn to share these practices with others.
While the information around QiGong is more readily available that at any time in history, the process of learning and the transformations that accompany study are no less challenging.
Students into this program are accepted via application - there are a limited number of spots available and we encourage early connection, especially if you are not currently a Radiant Living at Yoga Farm student.
The program is focused on a modern form of Qigong, based on the 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 teach a class, and is suitable for movement teachers, therapists, educators and personal practitioners.
This is a comprehensive, 100 hour training. 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.
This will provide you with all the skills you require to simply augment teachings in yoga and meditation, to teach standalone classes in your area, 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. This course provides the support for your journey.
QiGong is a gentle yet powerful movement, meditation and healing system that literally everyone can do.
