Welcome to our 16th UK National Health Qigong® Instructor Training Course 2024
Following the success of our 2023 Health Qigong® Instructor course we would like to invite enthusiasts of qigong to our 16th UK National Health Qigong Instructor Training Course
As the popularity of Health Qigong grows, people around the world start to discover, learn, practise, and enjoy the unique physical and psychological health benefits as well as philosophical perspectives that Health Qigong® exercises provide. The British Health Qigong® Association (BHQA) constantly reflects, embraces, and celebrates the unique system of Health Qigong®, and endeavours to offer an incredible experience in this life-changing method to enthusiasts in the UK and further afield.
With over 200 Instructors from the UK, Europe, North America, Australia, Israel and Japan training with us over the past 15 years, we are proud to be an official Health Qigong® instructor training centre as well as official UK representative formally recognised by the International Health Qigong Federation. Enthusiasts and teachers across the world join our unique courses to develop their own practice and bring this fantastic system to their students.
This year the course content will be conducted online and the assessment in person. Upon booking and prior to the start of the course you will receive the course materials which include book/DVD of your chosen form(s). Please note that this course is not about learning the form but learning how to teach the form in detail.
Full participation is expected during the live online sessions. Homework will be set and feedback given to help with your own personal practice and give you the best opportunity at the assessment. We also encourage participants to form online practice groups between sessions for you to get the most out of the course.
To gain the full qualification please note that the following needs to be achieved:
- Attendance and full participation at each online session (6 in total)
- Attendance for the assessment weekend (2 days)
We provide a course welfare officer so that you have a dedicated contact to help with any issues or difficulties that may arise during the course.
