Styles of Qigong being practised worldwide approximate to over 3,600.
Many individuals have studied studied and practiced over a period of years with a teacher but do not have the confidence to teach in public. Conversely, there are those that have heard of Qigong but have no idea what it is.
Additionally, there are those who have limited knowledge and skills of Qigong but wish to progress their learning but do not know where to turn.
