What is Qigong?
Qigong is a system of knowledge that comprises at least 5,000 years of human evolution and covers all the fields of human interest. As for the definition, it is officially known in China as the science of human potential and development. There are many styles of Qigong available so it is important to understand what makes our style unique. White Tiger Qigong are Taoist Qigong exercises that harmonize the body, breath and mind. White Tiger specializes in extremely dynamic
Qigong exercises known well in Wuyi Mountain and Wudang Mountain but has very little exposure in the West. Specialties include longevity & medical Qigong, breathing techniques, meditation, and Qigong based martial arts.
We have a total of three Qigong systems that serve as the foundation of the White Tiger Qigong system. The three Qigong systems are:
Body Mind Breath
In every type of Qigong the body, mind, and breath are synchronized to become one. Whether moving, standing or sitting, every exercise requires these 3 harmonies. When the body, mind and breath become one, the spirit and the body can become unified.
Flexibility Strength Fluidity
A signature feature of this Qigong is that it trains the practitioner to become flexible, yet strong and fluid all at the same time. This is practiced in our Dynamic Qigong forms. Dynamic forms range from balancing, deep stretching in low stances, to spinal twists that are most often derived from animal forms and dragon movements.
Paths Of Qigong
This path is for the practitioner whose aim is optimum health and self-healing. Healers and Chinese Medicine doctors practice to enhance their ability to heal themselves and others typically practice medical Qigong. It is based on applied Traditional Chinese Medicine Theory to our existing exercises, which then can be prescribed to a patient.
Martial artists who wish to enhance their martial power practice Martial Qigong. The techniques can be applied to just about any martial art to increase the power of strikes, kicks, self-awareness and energetic movement.
Maximum Human Potential (Scholarly Qigong)
In ancient times, scholars, royalty and the high class could afford Chinese Medicine doctors so there was no need for Medical Qigong. They could hire bodyguards so there was no need for Martial Qigong. They practiced Qigong to explore the depths and capabilities of the human body. They wanted to know what their maximum human potential was. How far they could extend their Qi? How hot or cold could they make it? How strong and flexible yet fluid could they become?
This path of Qigong is for those who seek enlightenment with Qigong. In Taoist tradition, in order to attain enlightenment they would first have to strengthen the body and be able to protect themselves so they practiced martial Qigong and Qigong for health. Once they reached a high level of those practices they believed the body was prepared to attain enlightenment of the spirit. This method of Qigong is beyond the scope of our school, as it requires the practitioner to live a life of seclusion from society. If a student has reached a proficient level of Qigong in the above-mentioned paths we will introduce you to some monks in China who can guide you down this path.

Qigong Can Be Dangerous without Proper Guidance
Many beginners are learning very advanced techniques of Qigong from books and videos that are known to be dangerous if not practiced correctly such as Micro-cosmic orbit and others. You need a teacher who can answer your questions as you move along. What if you have some unusual Qi feelings and you need to discuss with a master what it means?
One time when I began learning a special form of lung Qigong I felt what I thought was incredibly strong Qi sensations. After I told my master he told me I was not ready at that time for that Qigong because the Qi feelings I was having were not good. I would have never known that if he wasn’t there to guide me. Only once you have deep experience with a variety of forms could you possibly understand how to study many forms from a video.
It takes time and guidance to understand both the energetic and physical properties of Qigong. I suggest people use the videos as a study guide to what they have learned in person and not learn new forms from a video. Also, some people posting videos on Youtube have very little experience or are not qualified to even be teachers.
What Students Say
Retired - USA
I recently completed an intensive 3 week Qi Gong class with master teacher Tevia Feng. If you ever want to learn Qi Qong from a fabulous teacher look no further.
Qigong Teacher / White Tiger - USA
Tevia is such a gifted Qigong teacher. He walks his talk and knows his art.Whether you are new to Qigong or have been practicing for years, Tevia will meet you where you are and help you to deepen your practice. My wife said I was glowing after every session and in a couple months I was able to learn a few series of movements that will improve my health for a lifetime. This has been a life changing practice and I am now in the best shape of my life!
Kamau Bakari Abayomi
Just finished a 5 day immersion in 5 elements Qi Gong with the powerhouse of a brother, Tevia Feng. The man is a gold mine of knowledge and experience in the Martial Arts. Thanks for the sessions.
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!
