Frequently Asked Questions


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.

Qigong Intensives & Teacher Trainings

Will Tevia Feng be teaching this course directly?

Yes, Tevia Feng will be teaching this course directly. He also has senior instructors assisting him. In the event of unforeseen circumstances, his presence is not guaranteed. In that case a senior instructor will lead the course.

Is this course suitable for beginners?

YES, absolutely this program is designed for both the beginner and advanced practitioner. It is a step-by-step program so you go at your own pace.

I am severely obese, can I still do this course?

We will be doing at least 1.5 hours of physical practice in the morning and afternoon. If you can handle this then yes you can. Always consult your doctor if you have any doubts.

Can I learn qigong if I'm already well with age?

Qigong is for everyone to enjoy. We do teach modified versions of the forms for all ages. 

I have already done this course before or a similar one, should I still take this course?

Yes, Tevia Feng will be able to give you new, more advanced techniques to add to your existing techniques

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 3 levels or 1 full package course of your choice. This will allow you to have 200 hrs of training or equal to 3 weeks of training; 1 level per week. You will get a certification only if you pass the test and submit the requirements. 

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.

If you wish to continue this journey and add the other Modules, you can achieve the White Tiger Graduate Instructor by completing all three Modules or nine weeks of trainings (600hrs).

See the pathway to Certification for details.

What is the Teacher Training available for this year?

The list of all our scheduled teacher training is on our Event's page.

Do you teach treatment techniques or you only teach Qigong forms?

Part of the program is teaching treatment techniques and not just the forms. The forms are specially integrated with Fascia, Anatomy and Chinese Medicine, which will give the patient/student superb knowledge in both Qigong forms, and the science behind each form. 

What is the security deposit for?

The deposit is to guarantee your spot. When we first started running courses years ago some people did not show up and we could not sell the space back. 

Paypal guarantees your security as they have a dispute channel as well as a credit card. By bank wire you would have to trust our word and if you doubt this please see our many reviews and testimonials.

If you are still in doubt, I can arrange a call for you with the Master Instructor, Tevia. Thanks.

Should I stay onsite?

Aside from the exclusive food and accommodation packages for White Tiger Qigong students, safety, accessibility, and overall qigong experience are what we want our students to have. Spa, treatments and other programs can also be available on-site (depending on the venue). It also creates a more cohesive environment making your practice more motivated and efficient.

How many students are there per teacher training?

We cater to a maximum of 40 students only, depending on the course and typically have 2-3 assistants to help Tevia. However, if you wish to train privately with Master Tevia, we can also arrange it too.

I do not want to become a teacher is this course still for me?

Yes, absolutely this course is for you. If you change your mind later and want to become a teacher you will get credit for this course towards your teacher training.
