The title “A Walk with the Master” was chosen because in ancient times, if a student was working hard to learn the Masters art, the Master would take them aside and instruct the student to: “walk with them”. It was during these walks that the Master would talk with the student about the principles, philosophy, and theories to help them better understand the art they were learning. Such moments were often the highlight of a student’s training life.
In Level I you will learn the theory, movement and breathing techniques associated with each of the Qigong programs. With practice the many benefits which the programs give you will become more and more apparent. We look forward to being here to support you in your experience and in your journey.
