It is estimated that over 100,000 people are practising Qigong in the UK and over 80 million people practising worldwide.
Of the styles of Qigong being practised, it is estimated there are over 3,600 different styles.
The number of people teaching Qigong in the UK is unknown.
Moreover, many of our reputable Qigong Teachers have witnessed and are well aware of the many who profess their knowledge, skills and Qigong Teaching ability.
Some of these people have succeeded in learning everything there is to know about Qigong over a weekend course, others have studied for many years with a teacher but do not have the confidence to teach in public, and, there are those who have knowledge and skills of Qigong and rebuff networks and organisations such as our own Qigong Teachers Association.
The intention of the Qigong Teachers Association of the United Kingdom is to call on
A) Already established Teachers to engage with us in raising the standards of Qigong in the UK via an academic approach in benchmarking Qigong in the UK and assisting us with your knowledge and skills in developing Qigong via Courses.
B) Those already Teaching but unaware of the style being taught, it’s lineage and links, or to advance your skills and knowledge of Qigong to join us as members initially.
C) Those interested or compelled to study Qigong to join our courses that will lead to Certification by examination.
Overall, the intention of QigongTauk is to continually strive to raise the standards and skills of Qigong throughout the UK
