Welcome to The Three Monkeys School of Qigong.

Would you like to study to be a Qigong Teacher?

The Three Monkeys School of Qigong

It takes a certainly alchemy to make a good Qigong teacher, and then mix that with years of study and physical practice.
It’s easy to cram your head with theory, but that won’t fly in the real world!
Caroline, John and Jeremy have been boiling in that cauldron for many years each, and finally have decided to take the distillation and pass it along to the next generation. We realise that our 15 month course won’t make you into the “complete” Qigong teacher, but our on-going commitment to you and our school’s community will help you along this tricky path.
Besides the offerings of our fantastic over-seas teachers, Caroline, John and Jeremy will provide a complete syllabus, covering the History, basis in Traditional Chinese Medicine, spiritual roots and the modern day relevance of Qigong, with an emphasis on Zhineng Qigong. (Find details of the Course Syllabus here)
The complete course runs over approximatly 15 months with 30 contact days.
The course is split into THREE Moduals:-

  • Five teaching weekends (Normally in London) – with the Three Monkeys Teachers
  • Our 12 day Summer Retreat (Normally in Scotland) – lead by Chinese teachers
  • Our 5 Day Winter Retreat (Normally in Suffolk) – with the Three Monkeys Teachers
  • In addition we also offer about six Introduction / Practice days, round the country – with the Three Monkeys Teachers
  • On successful completion of all THREE units, the student insurance that covers you during your training will be extended and you can become a fully insured UK teacher of the Three Monkeys School of Qigong!

    The Full cost is in the region of £3,000 (We think this is excellent value to start your new career as a Qigong teacher!)

    Zhineng Qigong is still relatively unknown in the UK and there is a huge shortfall in the number of qualified instructors who are able to teach this powerful, healing form of moving meditation.
    Here at the Three Monkeys School of Qigong we are committed to building and supporting an open, experienced community of Zhineng Qigong Teachers through the highest quality training. By combining our understanding of how Qigong works in a western environment with the authenticity and depth of knowledge offered by visiting Chinese teachers, we are now able to offer truly unique and comprehensive training courses to those who are committed to deepening their knowledge of this life changing Qigong form and sharing their understanding with others.
