Qi Fit 's
The Foundations of Qigong

Discover Australia's Premier Qigong
Program

Welcome to Qi Fit's The Foundations of Qigong program.

The Foundation of Qigong program is an extremely comprehensive entry-level training program designed to lead even the most complete beginner through progressive training modules and toward a deeper, more advanced level of Internal Movement and Qigong practice and onto becoming a Qigong Instructor.

As you will discover, our 2023 program is divided into two stages.

Our Qi Fit Level 1 Certificate Program is a 150+ hour introductory program that is designed to give anyone all the knowledge and practical skills they need to start and build their own home-based Qigong practice.

Level 1 suits anyone wanting to learn Qigong who understands that knowledge is true power and who has either never tried Qigong or who practices a little in classes or events or on Youtube, and/or who has health wellness issues or wellness goals who is now ready to step up into a more potent and transformative Qi practice.

 

As a certification program, Level 1 gives you the tools you need to progress into Qi Fit's Level 2 Teacher Training Program.


If this sounds like you, you should be enrolling in Level 1.

Our Qi Fit Level 2 Qigong Teacher Training Program is a 300+ hour program that continues from the Level 1 Certificate program. Level 2 leads students to develop all the tools and skills they need to become fully qualified Qi Fit Qigong Instructors. 

Level 2 suits people who wish to take their home-based Qi Practice deeper or become fully qualified Qigong Instructor.

As a qualified Level 2 Qi Fit Qigong Instructor, you will be able to begin sharing the profoundly transformative qualities of Qigong with your students and clients in your holistic exercise classes/business, such as yoga, pilates, acupuncturist, massage or personal training, and in your events, retreats, workshops or coaching businesses.

Why Qi Fit Training is not just another Qigong course!

Imagine how limiting it would be if you went to a beginner's Yoga class and that beginner level was all there was of Yoga!?!

No deeper movements, no deeper elements of posture, no practical subtleties to master...just the very basics...

One of the things that Qi Fit is most passionate about is increasing the standard of Qigong training and practice globally, developing the depth of Qigong movement practice to help people fall in love with the true depths that the amazing mind/body movement art of Qigong takes us to - personally, professionally, physically, mental/emotionally and spiritually. 
 

To achieve this higher standard, Qi Fit programs are backed by the Qi Fit Internal Movement Program™. This program introduces students to a whole new level of Qigong practice, empowerment and personal transformation by teaching them how the body movements in order to generate true internal movement and seamlessly incorporate these movement principles into their Qigong practice.

 

The Qi Fit Internal Movement Program™ is an industry first that helps students master the complexities and subtleties of internal movement and Qigong faster than the traditional method of learning years of long forms and the luck that a master likes them enough to give them the secrets.

So if you wish to develop your Qigong practice to a high standard and discover the deeper, more profound, and transformative aspects of Internal movement and Qi cultivation, look no further than Qi Fit The Foundations Of Qigong Levels 1 and 2.

Qi Fit is dedicated to becoming the premier Qigong training provider in Australia and aims to provide high quality, professional Qigong Training to come into line with leading Yoga, and Pilates Teacher Training Programs.

Level 6: Master the Internal Arts: In this Level, you will learn about the small frame movements of qigong forms and how to use this refined internalized way of moving and training in your personal and medical qigong healing methods.  

Follow on levels

The term Gong in Qi Gong literally means working toward virtue, mastery, and excellence.  

Therefore, to help Qi Fit students infuse virtue and reach excellence, our programs are designed to progressively help the student toward mastering the deeper levels of internal movement and Qigong and Tai Chi training.
