Dragon Crane's Qigong Teacher Training program is scheduled by appointment with Sifu Robyn. Teachers learn via a combination of Zoom or In-Person sessions. No experience is necessary to become a teacher under Dragon Crane; however, your previous experience is considered as we develop your learning experience.  

Expectations

  • We expect teachers in training to practice what they learned from the previous session every day.
  • We expect teachers in training to learn and understand the history of the art. 
  • We expect teachers in training to honor and respect all people without judgement.
  • We expect teachers in training to represent Dragon Crane and its programs with integrity and honesty.

Process

  • Sessions are scheduled directly with Sifu Robyn and will take place weekly on Zoom.
  • As you progress in your training, you will be expected to demonstrate your abilities during these sessions. 
  • At the end of your program, you will submit a video of yourself demonstrating the Level for which you are training as well as a written test of your knowledge. After passing these two elements of your training, you will need to set up a live teaching experience with an individual, or small group. You will then submit a video of this experience.
  • You will need to submit a new video for each level of certification you pursue. You must actively teach a level for 12 weeks before pursuing the next level.
  • Once all of these elements are reviewed and approved by Sifu Robyn and Master Jeff Larson, you will participate in a virtual promotion ceremony and receive your certification in the mail. 

Cost

  • Generally, Level I teacher training runs 8 weeks and costs $300. There is a $60 promotion fee for certification.
  • Level II training typically runs 16 weeks, $620, with an $80 certification fee.
  • Level III Qigong is advanced and will also require 16 weeks of training at $620. The certification fee is $120.

What People Say

Slide

I have been taking QiGong classes with Sifu Robyn for several months now and can feel the beneficial effects in my body and mind. I always feel better after every class. Sometimes, during the class I think this is so simple and slow, how can it be helpful? I feel the meditative benefits of the movements with the deep focused breath work. I feel improvements with my balance and strength. I had a goal of being able to play Pickleball and I am now doing it! I'm very grateful for this experience.

I have really enjoyed the Qi Gong class you offer. What I love about the class:
- getting grounded
- movement - muscles I don't use every day
- massaging my internal organs
- getting healthier, stronger, better balance
- the pace is perfect for me at this time.
Many of the movements we do are similar and reinforce my P.T. exercises.
Thank you so much for offering us this opportunity

As I age, Qigong is the perfect class for me. Anyone at any age or physical ability can learn and practice it. No special equipment or clothing is needed. It meets me where I am on any given day.
- The in-person class with time for questions, explanations and demonstrations is very helpful.
- As a result of the class I have noticed an increase in my energy level. I am less stressed. I feel physically and emotionally stronger and more flexible. The benefits are subtle yet profound which reflect my opinion of the actual practice as well.
