 Qi Dragon™ Certified Qigong Instructor Program

Prerequisite: Completion of Level 1 & 2 & 3 Qigong Certificate Program

Our Qigong Certificate Programs are the main steps for training our instructors. Our instructor training courses are much shorter courses focusing on the specifics of how to teach, the guidelines as an instructor and the review of the teaching materials.

To be a qualified Qi Dragon™ Qigong instructor, you are required to familiarize yourself with the original teachings of the lineage and to be committed to transmitting the original teachings of the system.

Currently, our instructor program focuses on training Qigong instructors to teach our Qigong Formal Study Program Level 1 Part I, II & III and our Introductory Qigong. To verify and locate a certified Qi Dragon™ Qigong instructor and what they are certified to teach, please visit our Instructor Referral  Page.

 Testimonials from Graduates

“My experience in the teacher’s program was enriching and empowering. Going through the 3 levels of the certificate program was very transformative and a deep and enriching experience.
Now learning about how these precious teachings can get passed on to others takes the practice to the next level.
I am the kind of person who never quite feels prepared for things, but I have to say here that with the 3 in depth years of study and the teacher’s training I feel both prepared and excited to bring Heavenly Essence out into the world.”           —Sarah Head, L.Ac.

” In the past, I was not certain if the teaching field was the path for me. I had no doubt that Te Yi Medical Qigong was well suited for me from the very start of my Certificate Program training. However, after the completion of the teacher training course that originally I was only intending to take as a further study, I realized that it is an honor and privilege to be given an opportunity to hand down this precious knowledge to those who are searching and open to receiving great wisdom.  I am now actually very excited to have this opprotunity to pass down the treasure I have valued so much. “
                            —Phyllis Whitney

“Benefit others Benefit the world. The instructor training program was and is a natural and logical next step in practice. No matter whether I think I understand or truly do….inevitably, the next class/level in Heavenly Essence Qigong pulls away layers of misunderstanding and reveals more simple truths that cut to the heart and ring true in your soul. Training to become an instructor is no different. it’s one thing to take a class, it’s a whole other thing to teach a class. In Medicine and many other trades there is a saying: “See one, Do one, Teach one.” That is to say, you don’t really know/do something unless you can teach it to another. I want to teach. I am honored to be a small part of what Heavenly Essencen Qigong is and will become. Benefit others, benefit the world!”
                      —Graham Lankford M.S. L.Ac

“The teacher training gave me, once again, another level of appreciation for the both simple yet constantly expansive structure of HE growth. It is useful to recognize that a great way to learn something more thoroughly is to teach it. And a great way to grow in humility is to follow in the footsteps of our great realized teachers.”  
Doug Miller-Fleig, CMT

” I joined the Instructor Training to be again with my Qigong family and our incredible teacher. It was an amazing learning experience and lot of fun seeing my Qigong sisters and brothers presenting different methods. After four years of studying we are looking at the teachings from a different angle. Very interesting! I am excited to teach. ”
         —Marie Hirsch, Yoga Teacher

“After studying Heavenly Essence Qigong, I realize that this program offers a very powerful tool from ancient traditions that can tap into a person’s natural healing abilities and restore one’s vitality.

I have personally found this form of exercise and wisdom teaching to be both deeply meditative and health promoting while connecting me to the natural world of the universe in a single breath. 

It is a great honor to be certified as a qigong teacher in the Heavenly Essence lineage. I am ever grateful to Master Liping Zhu for her instruction and her confidence in me to be one of her certified instructors.”
