Testimonials

What previous graduates have to say...

Extremely worthwhile, even for a non-teacher...

Joel P

Even though I’m unlikely to do any formal teaching, I found this course to be extremely worthwhile. I had been learning qigong by following YouTube videos, including Nick’s, since just before the pandemic started shutting things down. This training has provided me with a fundamental understanding of qigong and a solid framework for developing my daily practice. I go back to the videos I had been following and now understand why this form or why that routine. Nick is a wonderful teacher. The three hour classes are well balanced between lectures and practice. He brings esoteric Chinese spirituality and medical theory into terms and concepts that we Westerners can relate to. I highly recommend this training for anyone who wants to deepen their qigong practice, whether or not they intend to teach.

"I can't wait for Level 2!"

Devi (Deborah)

I discovered Qigong around March 2020 and fell in love with it. I have been practicing and teaching yoga for 20 years and found Qigong to be similar to yoga but deeper, more fulfilling, complete and full of “super-sized” goodness (if you will). I started taking various online Qigong classes until I found Nick’s classes. I stuck with Nick because he has such a fantastic way of teaching that helps you understand how you’re supposed to move your body and breathe and helping you to feel the energy within. His visualizations help you get lost in the flow and let go of your stress and worries. His teacher training was also filled with this amazing process which made it easy to remember how to move and lead students to find their inner balance. I can’t wait for level 2!!

"You have taught me things that I never learned from any other teacher"

Maria P

I participated in Lee's Teacher Training program not only once but TWICE. I regularly attend his live subscription classes, I never miss a Master Class and I have trained with Daisy Lee, Roger Jahnke, Nan Lu, Master Ming Tong, Kathy Yang and Ken Cohen. While each one of those teachers is incredible in his/her own right and I have learned so much from them, you have taught me things that I never learned from any other teacher. You are extremely humble about how much you know and I appreciate the wonderful way you have woven so much detailed information into each and every lesson.

I was in Nick's first group of students in the "Teacher Training" program and loved it! You will learn so much about the history of Qigong. Nick gives you the tools for starting your own business. You will learn about anatomy and safety (yes, it is an exercise program and you can become injured). Nick is a great illustrator and communicator of all the moves, whether it is standing postures, stretches, purges, or flows. You will learn how to structure your practice, and how to modify a position based upon your students abilities. You will learn many practices (my favorite practice is the "Secret Sounds") plus some calming and soothing meditations. Nick is exceptional at answering questions and following his FB group. I could go on and on how much I appreciate his expertise and knowledge. An amazing benefit of joining, you will have access to a library of the movements and have access to recorded course lessons. If you are looking to delve deeper into Qigong, or to become a certified teacher, think about signing up for his course. Not only will you feel better, you can share this gift with your friends and family.

FAQ

  • Can I do this if I don't want to teach?

    Yes! The course is set up so that you can simply skip the lessons that are about teaching and business skills. About 80% of the course is just about learning Qigong, so you will get a lot out of it still.

  • What if I can't make the Live calls?

    No problem! You can submit your questions by email and I will answer them on the group call, which you can watch as a replay. We can learn a lot from each other's questions!

  • Is there a payment plan option?

    Yes! At the top of this page you will see a price with a little arrow. Click that to see a drop down menu with payment options.

  • Will I be certified from this? Can I get insurance?

    Those who wish to be certified will, after completing all the materials, write an exam, and do two private Zoom calls with me so I can check your forms and teaching skills. The certification is not through any official body other than my personal seal of approval, but you will be able to get liability insurance through websites like Namasta.com

  • What lineage is this school a part of? Where did you learn?

    I interned with Lee Holden for 3.5 years. He did a similar arrangement under Mantak Chia, who's school/lineage is called the "Universal Healing Tao". While Chia was Lee's first and closest teacher, he also studied under many masters across Asia and in the USA. Lee also became a Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioner at Five Branches University in California. Suffice to say I had an amazing teacher, who taught me a lot from his knowledge and experience as a student, teacher, and healer. You might say Lee is passing on Mantak Chia's torch, but I think Lee really created his own style of Qigong that drew from his multitude of influences. Likewise, while much of what I teach comes from my time with Lee, I also draw from my training as a Yoga teacher, and my studies with other Qigong systems, such as those shared by Jerry Alan Johnson, Damo Mitchell, Ken Cohen, David Verdesi, and others.

  • When are the Live Q and A's?

    I plan to run these on Sundays at Noon (Pacific USA). If this doesn't work for a number of people I'm happy to shift it around each week so that everyone has a chance to get on the Live calls.

Ready to Upgrade Your Practice And Career?

Teach full time, or make it a side-hustle to support another business like acupuncture, massage, or coaching. Qigong makes a versatile career addition. This course will prepare you not just to teach Qigong well, but to make a solid business out of it.

Nick Loffree

Nick has been interested in health and fitness since he was 12 when he began to explore strength training and sports conditioning. Thanks to this, he had some short-lived success as a football player... until he discovered the wonders of mind-altering substances. At 17, after a few years of heavy drug use and head traumas, Nick wound up hospitalized and medicated for paranoid psychosis. Two years of medication left him with cystic acne, eczema, depression, compromised digestion, and chronic brain fog. Not being one to take "impossible" for an answer, Nick ignored the cynicism of the doctors and psychiatrists he encountered and forged a path back to health for himself. He explored many different paths of yogic, buddhist, and taoist practices, as well as just about every specialized dietary philosophy available, and slowly uncovered the principles that helped him to heal. For his formal Qigong training, Nick spent 3.5 years apprenticing with world famous Qigong Master Lee Holden, and later made a name for himself as a Qigong and Taoist Yoga teacher across silicon valley. Nick was an on-site movement teacher at 1440 Multiversity, the mindfulness retreat center of companies like Google and Apple. He also taught Qigong as PTSD therapy to police, firefighters, and military through the non-profit Resiliency First, and shared Qigong with youth drug offenders and mental health patients at Evolve Treatment Centers. He was teaching at the most popular Yoga studios and gyms in Silicon Valley, with a thriving local business, but gave it all up when COVID hit to grow his business online. Besides Qigong, Nick is also formally certified in Vinyasa Yoga, Taoist Yoga, Asian Bodywork, and Tai Chi, and has trained extensively in various martial arts, sports, meditation techniques, and strength and fitness modalities. He now lives in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains with his fiance Sarah and their cat Obi Wan and dog Kona.
