Tai Chi Lisa Appolonia


Throughout the 200-hour Integral Qigong and Tai Chi Teacher Certification Training, we will explore simple forms of Qigong, Integral Tai Chi including Tai Chi Easy™, Transmitting Qi and Qigong Healing with focus on priniciples and practicality.

The tone of these trainings is one of reverence, joy, introspection and community. We will create a deep experience with moving and sitting meditations, mindfulness, spiritual enrichment and we will refresh your well-being with daily Qi cultivation.

Days will begin with morning practice, followed by breakfast. There will be ample time to have a leisurely breakfast before class. Class will be a mixture of lecture, practice, and small and large group exercises. There is a longer break at lunchtime, and then more class time in the afternoon, dinner, and one last time to meet during the evening. It is training!

You will be both busy and engaged as well as encouraged to find quiet time for you to do some self-study and get additional rest if you need it. Bring your journal, your favorite inspirationa books, and a sense of openness. You will gain practical experience in leading Qigong and Tai Chi community practice in a collaborative group setting that is non-competitive and a lot of fun and make lifelong friends in the process.
