What The Course Graduates Are Saying
After three amazing and intensive weeks in Thailand, I have finally completed my level 3 training in White Tiger Qigong. A HUGE thank you goes to Shifu Tevia Feng for his guidance and willingness to pass on his VAST knowledge to better the quality of everyone’s life through the practice and teachings of Qigong. This was an incredibly enriching and life changing experience.
I have been to China to train Qigong and Kungfu, but Tevia's training was so much more detailed and thorough explanations that I never got before. I learned more in one day with him than 1 month in China. It was exactly what I was looking for. I will definitely come back to train with Tevia again!
The White Tiger Teacher Training has been an invaluable experience. As a long term practitioner of yoga, I was surprised at the physical increases in strength and flexibility through the Qi Gong practice in such a short space of time. But more than that, the practice opened up a window of expression within that allowed me to truly connect with myself and others. Tevia is deeply passionate, with a heart of gold who truly cares for the students. I am extremely grateful that he would share his life experiences, knowledge and wisdom with us. I can’t recommend this training highly enough.

Week 1-2 Overview & Pricing
In our Medical Qigong Intensive and Teacher Trainings, we offer different Modules (A, B, C), each lasting between one and three weeks depending on your objective, time, and commitment to studying. In this 5 Element & 8 Trigram Qigong (Module C), you will be studying 13 ancient forms of 5 Element Qigong and 8 Trigram Organ Qigong forms. This smooth and flowing style focuses on gently massaging the organs through rhythmically moving the spine in every direction.
You do not have to have completed Modules A or B in order to do this training as they are not in sequential order.
