  • Alignment Principles

  • Taoist Philosophy & Medicine

    Learn the foundational principles of Taoism and Traditional Chinese Medicine that underly the practice of Qigong. Become familiar with the 5 elements, yin and yang, the 3 forces, the meridians and acupoints, the Tan Tiens (or energy centers of the body), Taoist nutrition and psychology, and how they all fit together to inform our practice.

  • Meditation Practices

    Learn meditation techniques for you own practice or to teach. We will cover a wide variety of techniques from simple relaxation exercises to healing imagery and Nei Gong (Internal Cultivation), with a specific focus on the Five Elements.

  • Teaching & Business Tools

    Get started in your Qigong business on the right foot with help from someone who has done it all from scratch! I went from teaching once a week to a full time business in just a couple months, despite the fact nobody had even heard of Qigong at the time. There is a need for Qigong out there in this crazy world, but in order to get people in the door you have to teach a really good class, and be able to market yourself. In this program we will cover both extensively.

Instructor(s)

Nick Loffree

Nick has been interested in fitness since he was 12 when he began to explore strength training and sports conditioning. 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 doctors and psychiatrists 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 years apprenticing with world famous Taoist Arts master Lee Holden, and has since made a name for himself as a Qigong and Taoist Yoga teacher across silicon valley. Nick is an on-site movement teacher at 1440 Multiversity, the mindfulness retreat center of companies like Google and Apple. He also teaches Qigong as PTSD therapy to police, firefighters, and military through the non-profit Resiliency First, and shares Qigong with youth drug offenders and mental health patients at Evolve Treatment Centers.
