Qigong At-Home Learning Courses
Yuan Gong methods are easy-to-learn and effective. Yuan Gong is the only Qigong system specifically designed to work on all levels of life – balancing the body from head to toe, improving the Qi condition and calming the mind.
Seven At-Home Learning Guides contain PDFs and audio and video files to fully explain and demonstrate each method (routine) and its underlying concepts. Each Guide has four sets of materials and links, sent weekly to you via email, to incrementally increase your knowledge and ability. Each course also comes with the option to purchase a private online session with a teacher at a discounted rate.
