5 Reasons to Become a Qigong Teacher

Category: Date: 3 September 2017 Comments: 5

1. Under Supply and Over Demand Of Qigong Teachers

There are simply not enough qualified teachers and too many students. This is the best problem possible to have from a teacher’s perspective. The Qigong revolution has begun. It is rising fast and many predict it will become more popular than yoga in the coming years. There are a lack of qualified teachers out there. Some schools have very low standards. They are certifying people after just a weekend workshop. If you get a high quality Qigong teacher certification such as White Tiger Qigong’s you will be ahead of the pack.

2. The Health and Wellness Economy is BOOMING!

In 2016, analysts reported that the global wellness economy reached $3.7 trillion and growth is expected to accelerate by 17% in the next five years. With consumer demand for wellness services and products higher than ever, a making it nearly three times larger than the $1 trillion* worldwide pharmaceutical industry. Now more than ever before people are seeking alternative forms of healthcare.

3. New Fitness Trends Give Qigong A Boost

The trend in the fitness industry is moving towards-Mind- Breath-Body principles. People are just plain bored with standard exercise classes and treadmills. New fitness trends that integrate a more holistic approach to fitness are rising fast. In the excellent book, Sweat Equity: Inside the New Economy of Mind and Body, the author, Jason Kelly reveals an incredible new trend in the fitness industry major trend is moving towards exercise that unites the mind and body. Qigong is perfectly positioned to ride this trend.

4. The Yoga Market is Oversaturated and Many Yoga Teachers Are Jobless

There are too many yoga teachers, many can’t even get a job. There are more Yoga teachers than ever before. Lots are working for the same wages that someone working at McDonald’s earns. The Yoga schools have put out so many teachers that the supply of teachers exceeds the demand. White Tiger Qigong has similarities to yoga but some defining differences as well makes it easier for someone trained in Yoga to pick up.

5. Help Others While Helping Yourself-The Most Rewarding “Job” in the World

One of the most rewarding things in life is helping others help themselves. I knew I would teah Qigong the rest of my life when i was teaching my first cancer patient in China at the clinic Medical Qigong. Before he was started training with me he could not eat, could not sleep and could not smile. After just several training sessions he was able to eat, able to sleep and even started smiling. The relationships and bonds I have created with my students are priceless. Seeing others empowered, healing and finding their own inner potential can bring tears to my eyes. I love teaching because instead of just sitting in an office, I am out with my students doing what I truly love. For more advice on the practice, explore our Qigong blog.

      Hi Niki, thanks for your message. I am happy to hear Jo has recommended White Tiger Qigong, she is wonderful. Your question is a very good question. For Yoga teachers I recommend starting with the 5 Element Qigong. For Yin Yoga teachers I recommend the 8 Trigram Organ Qigong. The good thing is we have a Qigong teacher training for both Qigong forms in September. Please see here https://whitetigerqigong.com/event/5-element-and-8-trigram-medical-qigong-intensive-and-qigong-teacher-training-thailand-september-2018/
      You can also view these online courses here: https://whitetigerqigong.com/shop/ and if you purchase the online courses and then decide to take the teacher training we will credit your purchase towards the cost so no risk for you.
      I recommend to register early as our last two Qigong teacher trainings have sold out. Let us know if you have any further questions.

        Hi Tevia!

        I had apply but can see that the teacher training is sold out but when I go to payment it doesn’t say so. I would really really want to come but can’t pay unless I know I have spot.
        Please advice if it’s sold out and if I can go through with the payment.
        Keeps my fingers crossed that I have a spot!!
        Thanks in advanced.
        Kind regards
