Frequently Asked Questions

General

Do you have online courses on medical qigong?

We have quite a few courses that may interest you. We don't have a "medical Qigong course" however our courses are "medically integrated". I suggest you start with 8 trigram qigong. You can also see all the Online courses available.

Please note that these courses do not make you a certified teacher as we cannot personally assess your form and performance. All certified teachers are assessed personally through our Teacher trainings Events.

Can I be an apprentice to Master Tevia?

We have a standard Teacher Training Certification and apprenticeship System. We also have a downloadable curriculum for your reference. Please see our Teacher Training Certification for more details.

What is the difference between 5 Animal Summer Roads and Winter Roads?

To explain the difference of winter roads and summer roads could fill a book so I suggest to purchase the ebook and or check the online course as it contains all the roads. 

Levels 1-10 are the summer roads and levels 11-20 are the winter roads. They are sequenced, but it is not a progression of increasing difficulty which is why it does not matter which one you do first.

My suggestion is to choose which date works best for you as the style of Qigong won't be so different.

What is the difference between 5 Animals and 5 Element qigong?

The differences between 5 elements, 5 animals summer roads and 5 animals winter roads is quite a vast topic to discuss. Kindly refer to the Blog for more detailed readings. You can also refer to our Youtube channel for more.

I do not have years of experience in Qi Gong and thus was wondering if I would still be able to accumulate enough knowledge and confidence to become a teacher after the training (and the practice+test)?

Every person learns at a different rate and progresses at a different speed so no one can answer your question if you have what it takes to become a teacher until you begin the course. Tevia has designed a step-by-step system of Qigong learning so that if you practice dedicatedly and follow the program he has laid out then you have a very high likelihood of being able to pass the certification tests. He has had complete newbies come and pass the test through dedicated practice.

How do I get a Teacher training certification to teach?

For you to have a Teacher training Certification, you will have to finish 4 levels or  You will get a certification only if you pass the test and submit the requirements, which is a video analysis and online theoretical test.

Would I be able to teach after I finish level 1 of the training?

You will receive a Certificate of Participation for each week attended. If you want to become a Certified White Tiger Instructor, you will need to complete all three weeks of one Module (200hrs) and take a written test as well as submit your forms for a video analysis after completing the Module.
