“I loved this course…the quality of the teaching is outstanding, the atmosphere of supportive, loving encouragement, openness and rigour is beautiful… this course walks the walk and does what it says on the tin!” Nick 2011
What will I learn?
The course consists of 5 modules. You will find details of each module in the prospectus
Who can apply?
The course is open to practitioners of Qigong, existing Tai Chi/Qigong teachers from all traditions, graduates of Shiatsu and related disciplines who have a personal Qigong practice. No specific academic qualifications are required for this course, however a commitment to practice and reflection on your own educational and learning experience is important. You are expected to attend each of the weekends. In addition there is an average of at least six hours a week of personal practice, reading, assignments and preparation for the training weekends.
Admission onto the course will be via your application form and an informal discussion with one of the teachers during which we will discuss your experience of Qigong or related practice.
Do I need a qualification in Anatomy ?
No, the Shiatsu College’s online anatomy course is part of the Qigong teacher training programme. Blending academic work with experiential anatomy which focuses on movement, stretches and energy work, it can be completed during your first year. If you have an existing anatomy qualification, we ask that you refresh your knowledge and delve into the new paradigms of anatomy that this unique course introduces.
What happens after graduation ?
We have negotiated with the insurers ‘Balens’ for you to take out your insurance with them. At the present time, there is no nationwide Qigong professional body equivalent to the US National Qigong Association. We will keep all of our graduates informed about any developments concerning the creation of a UK organisation.
