Qigong Teacher Training & Certification

 

 

Medical Qigong Teacher Training & Certification

Do you wish to deepen your practice through an intensive training? Or do you want to become a certified Medical Qigong teacher? As a certified teacher, you can help others who are seeking alternative forms of healthcare feel empowered, heal, and find their inner potential.

Qigong Modules

In our Medical Qigong 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. One full Module of three weeks is equivalent to 200hrs of practicing and studying. The Modules are not in sequential order. This means A, B and C can be taken in any order throughout the year. E.g. you can start with C one year, and then do B or A. You will learn different Qigong forms depending on Module A, B, or C. The weekly schedule and overall design is similar in all three Modules, following the Body-Breath-Spirit principle. This means you will learn the sequence of the forms in week 1, adding Qi and the breath in week 2, and gain proficiency as well as study the theory and practice needed for your teacher certification in week 3.

Qigong Certification

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 White Tiger Graduate Instructor by completing all three Modules or nine weeks of trainings (600hrs).

See the pathway to Certification below.
