Fall  2018

IIQTC Comprehensive Healer Within Medical Qigong Video Program







Want to learn in a safe environment?   This program is suitable for every fitness level.  Research shows that Tai Chi participants show improvement in pain, fatigue, stiffness and well-being!  The benefits of Tai Chi are experienced by all fitness levels. Tai chi helps older adults improve their balance and reduce the likelihood of falling. Research has shown that people who complete the program are half as likely to fall and are less fearful about falling.
The program is intended for community-dwelling older adults, who can walk easily with or without assistive devices.
Participants will learn balance skills, good body alignment, and coordinated Tai chi movements.

Tai Chi Easy™ in a  $3.1 Million Research Trial

 Esteemed IIQTC Certified Teacher and renowned researcher Dr. Linda Larkey is the innovator of a new research trial funded by the NIH for $3.1 million to study Tai Chi Easy™ in a collaboration with Arizona State University and the Mayo Clinic. Dr. Jahnke, who developed the Tai Chi Easy™ protocol is a consultant on the project and was recently in Phoenix to present on Mind-Body and Integrative Medicine at the Mayo Clinic. There is a video of this talk which will be posted.

 This is a huge pivot point for the IIQTC and Tai Chi Easy™! 

 Be sure to keep up your Tai Chi Easy™ skills warm. It was intended that Tai Chi Easy™ become a kind of turning point in the application of Tai Chi and Qigong Principles in the U.S. and even internationally. This research suggests that our intent is being fulfilled. You can share this information as a part of your credibility!

Introduction to Spring Forest Qigong

Monday's September 17 - October 8, 2018

5:45 - 6:45 p.m.


​Spring Forest Qigong (SFQ) is a simple, effective system of movements and meditations that can be done anywhere, anytime, and by anyone. No equipment is needed, and thousands of practitioners worldwide have reported incredible results.

This revolutionary and modernized form of qigong was developed by International Qigong Master Chunyi Lin in 1994 after years of qigong, tai chi, and martial arts practice and a whole month of intensive meditation in the legendary Qiang Cheng mountains.  Grand Qigong Master, Chunyi Lin has a strong conviction that "Qigong is such a powerful tool for healing, the whole world needs to know about it and benefit from it."


Meditation:  Attaining Peace and Calm
Monday's October 15 -November 5,  

​6:00 - 7:00  p.m.


Research has linked a regular practice of meditation to reduced levels of anxiety and stress. Studies have shown that as a result of consistent meditation, the nervous system actually begins responding differently to stressful situations. As you develop your own meditation program, you'll be able to track the benefits for yourself, from changes in your reactions to improvements in your energy and clarity. Learn what meditation is and define how you will set up for it as you learn and practice various meditation processes. You will leave the class feeling more peace and calm, knowing what meditation practices work best for you and having an action plan to move forward on your own.


Preregistration Required.

Must have required minimum number of participants to run the classes.
