If you have answered yes to these questions my Qigong teacher training might be for you!
As Qigong grows in popularity, so does the interest in becoming a Qigong Instructor and sharing the knowledge and benefits with others. I have thought about an instructor program for a long time and wanted to create a practical course that gives instructors a platform to grow their own business and spread the joy and benefits of a regular Qigong practice.
This training is open to those who wish to teach Qigong but equally open to those who wish to deepen their knowledge and build confidence in their own practice of Qigong.
I am excited to announce this course is now open for it’s next enrollment!

What’s The Course Structure?
My teacher training is based upon the understanding that we learn best from experience. Therefore, I wanted to create a syllabus that allows you to integrate a theoretical knowledge of Qigong with practical teaching in an easy and harmonious way. The teacher training will include a mix of theory and practical components with an emphasis on the practical elements. It’s broken down into 2 main phases:
Phase 1 - Self Study Course
Embark on a journey through the art and science of Qigong with my self-paced teacher training course.
Dive into "Qigong For Health & Wellbeing" and understand the benefits of Qigong as a tool for holistic health. Learn to understand the essence of health and wellbeing through Qigong, recognize the physiological, psychological, and sociological impacts, and learn how to foster a regular Qigong practice among individuals to cultivate better mind-body connection and resilience.
In the "Technical Knowledge and Skills" module, discover the core definitions, conceptual principles, and delve into intricate techniques like the transformation of Qi for holistic health and spiritual growth. You'll get hands-on experience with at least one complete form from the system, ensuring a deep-rooted understanding of the practice.
Lastly, the "Plan, Prepare, Deliver, and Review Qigong Exercise Sessions" module equips you to curate sessions tailored for various objectives, from fitness and health to spirituality and wellbeing. You'll master the art of designing safe and effective Qigong programs, adapting to individual needs, and evaluating session outcomes for continuous growth. Whether managing stress or ensuring inclusivity, your Qigong sessions will cater to every participant's unique journey.
Work through 50+ videos that will help transform into a knowledgeable and adaptable Qigong instructor!
Phase 2 - Teaching Sessions
Join our weekly teachers group where you will have the opportunity to teach other people on the program at different stages. Receive feedback, build confidence and develop the skills to confidently teach a beginner’s Qigong class.
Once you feel ready, you will be asked to teach 10 hours (one hour per week) to the Qigong community in my virtual studio.
This experience will show your ability to hold space, guide students and build your confidence as a teacher. This is an ideal way to practice and hone your skills in a live environment as well as starting to build your profile. I will give you feedback as well as that collected from the participants to help you improve where necessary. If you successfully pass this stage you will be issued with a provisional Qigong With Kseny Teaching Certification and you will be able to start teaching.
How Am I Assessed?
Phase 1 Assessment
Video Submission - as the weeks progress through the self paced course, you will be asked to submit videos demonstrating your knowledge and practical skills of specific aspects of the classes you will teach. Feedback will be given to ensure you are on the right track. Once you have passed all the video submissions you will join phase 2.
Phase 2 Assessment
Online Teaching - after you have successfully completed the self paced course, you join our weekly teachers group where you will have the opportunity to teach other people on the program at different stages. Once you are ready, you will be asked to teach 10 hours (one hour per week) to the Qigong community in my virtual studio. If you successfully pass this stage you will be issued with a provisional Qigong With Kseny Teaching Certification and you will be able to start teaching.
In order to convert your provisional certificate to a full one, you will have 12-18 months to attend an in person assessment weekend. The in person assessments will be held 1-2 times per year and will either be in a retreat center, a chalet, or a hotel conference room and you will be tested on everything you have learnt to date. You will also have to teach 25 hours either in your local community, online or through one of my platforms.
Qigong is a lifelong vocation and regular practice is essential. Once you have passed your certificate it will be valid for 3 years, after which you will need to keep an active profile and demonstrate your continued ability to teach to the required standard.
Is It Right For Me?
The Qigong With Kseny Teacher Training won’t be right for everyone. Some key questions to ask are:
- Do I have a genuine interest in Qigong, breathing, mindfulness and mediation?
- Do I embrace the philosophy of less is more, do no harm and listen to our body?
- Am I a kind, positive, supportive, open minded, accessible, patient and joyful person (at least most of the time!)
- Do I want to actively teach Qigong With Kseny’s classes, either online, in person or both?
Ideally you will have been practicing with me for the last 2 years on my membership site or another instructor for a similar period of time and commit to practice 5-10 hours per week in your own time.
How Long Does It Take?
•The minimum time would be 6-8 months for a provisional certificate to teach, then you will have 12-18 months to teach 25 hours and attend a 2-3 day in person workshop. This is dependent on your background, aptitude and commitment to the practice. A more realistic timeframe for the provisional certificate would be 12-24 months.
When Can I Start?
•The self study course will be available from 15 January 2024 onwards.
How Much Does It Cost?
•Phase 1 & Phase 2 - Eur 2,400
•In Person Assessment - Eur 100 and includes 2-3 days of teaching and assessment in person (does not include travel, board or meals - you will be able to stay somewhere locally that meets your budget).
Are there any refunds after committing to or starting the course?
No there isn't, therefore please be very sure before enrolling.
How long do I have access to the teacher training materials?
•You will have access for 3 years from when you start the course.
What if I don’t pass the video submission?
•You will receive feedback and be able to submit the video again after a certain time period e.g between 7 and 30 days.
What if I don’t pass the video submissions on a repeated basis and/or fail the online teaching?
•The certificate is not guaranteed, it’s important to reach a satisfactory standard to be able to teach.
I have a lot of experience with Qigong and am certified with other instructors, can I fast track my certification?
•As long as you pass the video submissions then it is possible to reduce this initial time period.
Can I pay in installments?
•The only option is a one-time payment of Eur 2,400. When you book an in person assessment a fee of Eur 100 will be payable at that time.
Will I be certified to teach Medical Qigong?
• No, this is a practical course that will allow you to teach a beginners Qigong class for general health and wellbeing as opposed to a Traditional Chinese Medicine course. During the course you will understand the limitations of when and where you can help people and how important it is to refer people to medical professionals when nescessary.
What are my prospects after completing the course?
•You will be able to start, grow or develop your wellbeing business and be able to teach material that you have learned during the course. You will be listed in my online teacher training directory. You will have the opportunity to appear on my YouTube channel. You will have the opportunity to be paid to teach in my virtual studio depending on your availability &/or make money from teaching directly on the platform.**
