About Us

John Millar
Co-founder

John’s passion is in making the ideas and practices within the Chinese moving meditation of Qigong fun, accessible and relevant to a modern western audience.

This passion has led him to work with a wide range of corporate and healthcare organisations in the UK, mainland Europe and the Middle East. He is a regular speaker at the Integrative Health Convention, an active member of the College of Medicine and a regular contributor to Integrative Health events in the UK and Europe

Since being introduced to Qigong in 1997, John’s exploration has led him to study with some of the most highly regarded teachers of Qigong in the UK, Europe, Australasia and China.

Along the way he has studied with 7 different schools and qualified to teach in 4 different system before finding his chosen path with Zhineng Qigong.

On a pure qigong basis, John now offers classes and one to one consultations from his home in Suffolk as Energy Play Qigong and works with Jeremy to run retreats and teacher training through Three Monkeys School of Qigong.

Jeremy Colledge
Co-founder

Jeremy Colledge was born and schooled in Edinburgh and then moved to learn business in South Africa and eventually in the City Of London.

Jeremy describes himself as a “good at plate spinning, but in a nice way, not like a politician!”

15 Years in the City as a broker almost killed Jeremy, so he sought refuge in Tai-chi, Yoga and finally settling into Qigong.
Jeremy has been a teacher and healer of Qigong since the late 90's.
Jeremy studied with three different schools of Tai Chi, then with Master Lam Kam Chuen and with Grand Master Chen Xiaowang.
His journey then took him to the International Institute of Medical Qigong for a two year course which saw him qualify as a teacher and healer.
Jeremy’s life’s work is to open a Qigong Medicine-less Hospital in the UK
After the City, Jeremy became and then a Co-Founder and Director of Positivetv.tv - PositiveTV was all about creating positive Media as a counterbalance to the stream of negativity we experience in traditional media.
Currently living and teaching in Bath, Jeremy is a father, husband, pet lover, carpenter, mediator , healer, Brazilian Portuguese and Chinese language student and general tech head. (not necessarily in that order!)

Jeremy offers One to One healing consultations and group exercises classes at www.quantumqigong.co.uk

Caroline Whyman
Co-founder - retired

Caroline Whyman was a driving force in the formation and development of the Three Monkeys School of Qigong. After 5 years, a move out of London to Devon and an increasing demand for her teaching abroad she has chosen to refocus her energies in other aspects of the Zhineng Qigong Community and step out of her role with Three Monkeys.

Caroline Whyman has had an interesting career as an artist, lecturer, and writer who made unique, inlaid porcelain, which was exhibited worldwide. She spent time as an ‘Artist in Residence’ in Japan, Poland, Israel and Hawaii, and worked as a lecturer in post-school Education.
Before becoming successful, she had endured a prolonged period of a mystery illness - now known as ME, or post viral fatigue syndrome, which robbed her of six years of ‘normal’ life!  Regaining her health was a long process; after three years of regular acupuncture treatment her health began to return.
This was a time of deep self discovery, and she began searching for something she could do to support her own progress - an article in a Sunday paper led her to Qigong, and her first teacher, Simon Lau (with whom she studied for over 20 years).
Within the first six months of practising ‘Wisdom Form Qigong’ or Zhineng Qigong, her health, and wellbeing had returned in force, and she knew, very deeply, the power of this practice!
Caroline has always been passionate about teaching and trained as Qigong teacher at ‘The Elemental School of Qigong’, where she made friends with her teaching colleague John Millar.
In 2008 she travelled to China where she met Jianshe Liu, at the Hexju Qigong Centre and her love affair with China and with the wonderful community of Zhineng Qigong teachers began!
Caroline regularly travels to China, to train with various   Zhineng Qigong Teachers,and also leads groups of people to experience Zhineng Qigong and the culture of China, and  likes to practice speaking a little mandarin Chinese, which she has been learning for the last 4 years.

Caroline is no longer with Three Monkeys.
Caroline’s influence remains strong within the Three Monkeys and she is an integral part of our online training.
We wish her well in her new ventures
