Workshop Details

Master Yang is a traditionally trained, internationally recognized taiji and qigong grandmaster who has distilled essential aspects of these arts into an easy-to-learn program suitable for people of all ages and physical abilities. His Evidence-Based Taiji and Qigong (EBT and EBQ) programs were originally designed for research interventions to yield maximum benefit in the shortest amount of time. During this five-day workshop, participants will be shown static and dynamic qigong exercises and taiji form movements designed to nurture energy, develop the mind-body connection, and enhance well-being, tranquility, and positive thinking in daily life. Master Yang’s teachings embody the ultimate purpose of taiji and qigong practice: With your whole being, develop your life. Integrated with Master Yang's teachings will be one-hour presentations by special guest instructor Robert Sheeler, MD. Dr. Sheeler, editor of the Mayo Clinic Health Letter, will discuss the pragmatic aspects of mind-body medicine. Both the weekend (August 5-7, 8.5 contact hours) and 5-day (23.5 contact hours) workshops with Dr. Yang are required for those seeking Level I (EBQ) instructor certification; however, the courses are non-sequential and may be taken in either order. The 5-day course is designed as an immersion training, allowing participants more time to work with Dr. Yang and to deepen their understanding of the material.
