350 Hour – Fertility and Longevity Qi Gong Teacher Training
What would two or three years of regular Qi Gong practice bring into your life?
This course is for those who want to go in-depth into the Foundations of Qi Gong and learn more advanced practices and skills to support people who are focused on improving their Fertility or Longevity.
In this time of high stress, economic insecurity, spending more time at home, working, socializing, and learning online, becoming a Qi Gong teacher makes a lot of sense.
If you are looking to train for a new career, studying Qi Gong is a process of entering deep states of meditation and instinctual readiness, emotional acceptance and spiritual reunion.
That will be your homework for a few hours a week. Awareness, Adaptability, Flow, Resistance, Release, and Stillness.
Becoming an experienced and confident Qi Gong teacher takes a few years.
There are many exercises, skills, principles and forms to learn, remember and practice regularly. To succeed in this kind of training you will need to commit 3 to 4 hours of practice every week. You can choose if you want to practice
Standing Qi Gong
Seated Qi Gong
Qi Gong on the Mat
Shaolin and/or Daoist Meditation
You will have access to the recorded content for life, so you can always review the exercises when you need to. The recorded video content is organized and edited to ensure you have quick access to the skills or forms you are looking for.
The weekly live sessions are usually on the website within 24 hours if you cannot be there for the webinar class.
When you feel that you have the experience, expertise, and clarity with the content to begin teaching, then Welcome to the team!
The best way to learn to teach is to teach! If you plan to teach, then I will do my best to help you get there!
The 350 Hour Fertility and Longevity level of training is for those who feel called to teach Qi Gong while guiding people on their journey to better health and viitality.
There are Two Phases and Seven Levels to this comprehensive training opportunity.
Each level takes you deeper into the journey of Embodied Awareness, Somatic Healing, Mindfulness, Vitality, and Daoist Inner Cultivation.
The 350 Hour Program Begins with the 200 Hour Foundations Course
Phase One Training
Qi Gong Foundations Instructor

Everyone starts here!

Once you have completed this phase of your training, you will be ready to teach Foundation classes in your own studio, a local studio, a recreation center, a Senior’s center, a corporate retreat, or other retreats or gatherings.
Phase One includes Levels One, Two, and Three – see below
If you have a few years of experience with Qi Gong, Martial Arts, or Yoga, and you can commit to 5 hours a week of practice, you could complete this training in one year!
Movement, Posture, Breath, and Stillness
You will begin your training by gently stretching and toning every muscle, joint and nerve in your body. You will notice changes in your postural alignment and energetic awareness very quickly.
Deep Stillness and Precise Coordination
In Level Two you will explore the Eight Pieces of Brocade form, and the subtle Balancing Heaven and Earth form along with several essential Qi Gong Principles

At this level of training, you could easily work in (or run) an Integrative medicine clinic. It would be easy to build an online brand as a Qi Gong for Fat Loss, Fertility, and/or Longevity expert. You could consistently fill up specialized weekend seminars with this level of knowledge.
Shaolin Qi Gong is highly sought after in many martial arts schools.
Phase Two includes Phase One and Levels Four – Seven – see below
Therapeutic Movement and Shamanic Healing
Level Four focuses on Shamanic Healing, Embodied Prayer, Therapeutic Exercises, Trauma Release and your Microcosmic Orbit (Xiao Zhou Tian). Qi Gong began as a Shamanic practice. The Great Reunion with Nature – Tai Li Fa will be your next immersion into connecting with the forces of nature.
Shaolin Temple Qi Gong
The Shaolin Monastery is considered the birthplace of modern Kung Fu and Chinese Buddhism.
You will begin your Shaolin training with a deep dive into the next level of the life-changing Muscle Tendon Change (Yi Jin Jing)
Opening Your Meridians and Energy Gates
In Level Six, you will learn the Daoist ‘Willow Dance,’ a Shamanic way to explore and open your Meridians (Jing Luo).
Yang Sheng Fa – Nourishing Health Principles
This combination of experience, skills, and practices can be the foundation of a life-long practice as well as a part-time or full-time career.
Consistent and Spontaneous Support
In my experience, mentoring is always about Guidance, Evaluation, and Support. For an Athletic, Qi Gong, Meditation, Shamanic or Medical Student to feel confident, they naturally require consistent opportunities to connect, share, inquire and explore whatever skills and knowledge they are trying to master.
Successful learning and the building of confidence rely on support as much as anything.
This program includes three forms of live, interactive and essential support.
Weekly LIVE Webinars
The first form of support will be weekly LIVE webinar events. Over the next few years of your training, we will be spending a lot of time together!
EVERY WEEK, (or two) we will focus on the most essential, foundational and tangible principles of Qi Gong practice, Step-By-Step, Level By Level.
Monthly Group Collaborations
The second form of support is Monthly LIVE group co-teaching, Q&A, sessions, and seasonal webinar events. Every month we will gather as a group and take turns teaching and sharing – when you are ready.
Private Personal Mentoring
The third form of live and in-person, (or in e-person) connection will be your Private Review, Evaluation and Guidance sessions.
These Bi-Monthly One-on-One sessions will give you a chance to demonstrate what you are learning, ask questions, share breakthroughs, and get some feedback on the subtle details of your practice.
How Much Does This Training Cost?
If you are not certain how deeply you are invested in this practice or the information available in this program, please look into my shorter and more specific programs.
If are already a Qi Gong student or practitioner and are certain that you want access to the essential skills, theory and knowledge base but are uncertain if you want to become an instructer, this training is still a great value.
If you feel drawn to becoming a professional Qi Gong teacher, I can say with absolute confidence that this program is the best online training available today.

If you are completely new to Qi Gong practice, I encourage you to give yourself the time you need to feel familiar and confident with your practice before sharing it with orthers.
If you have enough experience and feel ready, I encourage my students to start a volunteer ‘practice with’ group in your second year of practice.
This is basically a chance to show a few people (for free) what you are learning. Imagine taking some friends and curious strangers through a 40 minute well organized and inspiring experience. Every week.
You don’t get paid, but you get a chance to shake off any nervousness and work out any bad habits before you start asking for money. In your third year of training AND teaching, you will be asked to teach a regular class. As a teacher in training, you can offer this by donation.
In your final year you will offer a weekend workshop. If you charge a moderate fee you wil recover your investment for this training.
