John is an honored instructor at Wellness Within and he provides Qigong classes in-person at the center and online. In this episode, he shares about how his own journey led him to Qigong and helped him heal. He discusses what is “qi”, breaks down the components of the Qigong practice, describes the power of Wisdom Healing Qigong, and much more.

John has been studying, practicing, and teaching qigong for years.  He is a lifelong educator, versed in making learning effective and fun. He creates a safe, engaging environment through his practice of compassionate communication and empathy. John has been trained in, and will draw from, two systems: Wisdom Healing Qigong with Master Mingtong Gu, and Integral Qigong with Dr. Roger Jahnke.
