So what is Qigong?
We like to say that Qigong is a simple practice that delivers profound results.
It’s the ancient Traditional Chinese Medicine practice that is the foundation for acupuncture.
Qigong (pronounced “Chi-gung”) uses simple physical movements, breath work, and guided meditation to promote greater relaxation, sharper focus, and better physical health. The moves are low-impact, simple, and adaptable, making Qigong accessible and doable for people of any age and any level of physical health.
Qigong, like yoga and Tai Chi, is a practice. That means that you’ll see the greatest benefits from Qigong when you make it a habit. The health and wellness advantages accumulate over time.
We are committed to supporting you in your journey to greater health. That’s why we created the Qi Club.
What’s the Qi Club?
As a member of the Qi Club, you get anytime access to our interactive, online class platform, resource library, and community designed to bring you vibrant health, positive support, less stress, and increased wellbeing.
It’s an on-demand gateway to peace of mind!
The idea for the Qi Club came about during the 2020 pandemic when our regular public classes were moved onto the web.
For about three months, we offered free classes as our way of giving back and to help people cope with the drastically changing environment.
Once we all began adjusting to “the new normal,” we felt it was time to put some skin in the game. That’s when the Qi Club was born.
As active members of the Qi Club you’ll become part of a positive, conscious community — during a time when so many people are isolated.
How do classes work?
Classes are held online. We meet on Zoom, Monday through Thursday at 8 AM Pacific time. Each class is a half hour long.
Why real time classes?
Because participating live, even online, isn’t the same as watching a recording. The energy is different. Moving in unison with other people around the world, even if you’re not in the same room, is powerful and magnetic. There’s a great positive vibe.
It’s also a whole lot of fun!
Classes are interactive. Qi Clubbers have the chance to ask questions via chat at any time during class. Many times we are able to pivot on the fly to help you with issues you’re experiencing right now.
Every class is fun and different. Still, if you can’t make the live classes, the recordings will be posted and made available later that day. Also, you will have access to exclusive videos that are only available on the membership site — like our monthly members-only vlog and the very first 7-Day Qi Challenge.
Members can practice anytime it’s convenient for you. Recordings are available for up one week after each class, so you can join in whenever it suits your schedule.
Qi Club members also get answers to your health-related questions live on the Zoom chats, as well as on our “Frequently Asked Questions” tab, and/or by emailing us directly. A personal response is a valuable, exclusive benefit offered only to Qi Club members.
New classes will be added in as time goes on. Enjoy Qi Revitalizer with Chris, Stretch and release with Parisa, and others by our certified teachers and guest instructors.
Are Qigong and Tai Chi proven to get results?
Lower blood pressure and improve heart health.
The National Library of Medicine found that Tai Chi is an excellent alternative exercise program for patients with cardiovascular diseases and has benefits for patients with Coronary heart disease.
Pubmed article (PMID: 18487898)
Reduce the negative effects of stress.
In 2014, a study in the International Journal of Behavioral Medicine found that Tai Chi interventions have beneficial effects for various populations on a range of psychological well-being measures, including depression, anxiety, general stress management and exercise self-efficacy.
Pubmed article (PMID: 24078491)
Improve immunity and provide cancer protection.
On a study of 592 cancer patients, the Hospital of Guangzhou Medical University in China found Qigong and Tai Chi among the most effective significantly helped reduce fatigue, improved immune function and lowered cortisol level in the majority of patient treatments.
Pubmed article (PMID: 24559833)
Reduce chronic pain.
“Not only does Qigong and Tai Chi help to lower blood pressure and reduce stress, it also helps alleviate chronic pain.”
A study of treating degenerative joint diseases such as osteoarthritis and joint pain by the Peninsula Medical School in 2008 found significant pain reduction in patients practicing Tai Chi compared to routine treatment. Researchers also found some evidence of improvement of physical functions and activities of daily living in the Tai Chi group.
How long does it take to see results?
Obviously, everyone’s different. However, these are the patterns we regularly see, and what our members report:
On day one, Qi Clubbers get familiar with the live classes or catch the daily replay. They will immediately feel more calm and relaxed. By day four, they’re often aware of previously blocked emotions. They’ve started on their journey of self-discovery and healing.
After one week of daily classes, members report feelings of physical and mental relief, less stress, and a better mood.
After 2 weeks, participants often begin to feel more energy.
And after 3 weeks, we have reports of increased mental clarity and confidence.
One month of regularly attending classes in the Qi Club works wonders for members’ sense of health and well being.
By spending 30 minutes a day for the next 30 days, you’ll experience the positive impact Qigong and Tai Chi (with some yoga thrown in) can have in your life. You will have boosted your tolerance for challenge — stressing less and loving life more!
But don’t take our word for it. See what some of our members have to say.

Eric the Trainer
Hollywood Physique Expert
Chris empowers people to heal…at home when they’re doing Qigong on their own.
“As a health-and-fitness professional, I don’t know many people in the world who can do what Chris can do. He empowers people to heal on the table when he’s in the room and at home when they’re doing Qigong on their own.”

This is vital information that everyone needs to know and their health will benefit from knowing it.
“After watching the video series I realized that this is vital information that everyone needs to know and their health will benefit from knowing it. It seems like common sense the way Chris explains it… I’m excited to see Qigong blossom and for multiple people to learn about it!”

Mr. Shelton used Qigong to fix me. Doing Qigong exercises are really cool!

Frequently Asked Questions
We’re betting you have questions. (Everyone does, at first. That’s good. 😉)
So let’s dive into the most common things our members typically ask before they join.
Yes, to all the above. Here’s the deal. Truly, anyone and everyone can benefit from practicing Qigong. That’s because all the exercises can be modified. You can do them standing, sitting, or even lying down. The meditations and exercises will certainly give your Qi (life force energy) a workout, but you will finish feeling revitalized and refreshed rather than strained or exhausted. Each day of practice should bring greater and more significant benefits, gradually refining your health and vitality — relieving pain and helping you to be your absolute best self, no matter where you start.
Not at all. Qigong moves are easy to learn and practice, and require no special training. You can come as you are. You don’t need a mat, loads of space, or expensive equipment. You don’t have to wear fancy silk pajamas or a cloak. Just wear anything that’s comfortable. Do it indoors. Do it outdoors. Do it anytime. Be yourself, relax, and have fun with it.
Yes! To our Western minds, it seems incredible that these simple movements and meditations can have such profound effects. No surgery? No drugs? But it’s true. All you need is 30 minutes a day, and in a couple weeks you can begin to notice this healing for yourself. Qigong has been scientifically proven to reduce stress and depression, ease chronic pain, fibromyalgia, and chronic fatigue, lower blood pressure and increase heart health, and boost the immune system, among other benefits. We also have loads of personal stories from happy clients, attesting to its effectiveness. With all this going for it, can you really afford not to give Qigong a try?
Great question. Qigong is similar to yoga in that it’s a physical and spiritual practice, but it’s different in some important ways. The movements in general are less challenging and more meditative while yoga requires more strength, flexibility, and balance. Does that mean Qigong isn’t challenging? Not at all! The focus is just different.
You will be identifying and clearing the emotional blocks that are keeping you from achieving your best health. That means Qigong will help you be the best you can be, whether you do yoga or Crossfit, walking or weightlifting, boxing or basketball. And one of the coolest things about Qigong is that it’s not a belief system — meaning, you do not have to believe in it for it to work. If you have a hard time accepting the concept of Qi or the theories about how it works, then you can (just as Chris did in the beginning) ignore it all! Do the exercises and see for yourself.
We have over 50 years of cumulative experience working in the health and healing industries. We’ve witnessed countless healing transformations for all types of people (and animals!) — including people of all shapes, sizes, and ages. Our clients come with different conditions and from different circumstances. We’ve helped them become pain-free using simple Qigong services that are so easy to learn and inexpensive, we seriously don’t know why more people don’t do it! As a result, we make Qigong fun and accessible. We don’t use complicated jargon and we keep our tone light. Healing is serious stuff, but laughter, smiles, and positivity are always the best medicines.
No problem. Recordings will be posted and made available later that day. You can practice anytime it’s convenient. Recordings are available for up one week after each class so you never have to miss a day. Also, you’ll have anytime access to exclusive videos — like our monthly members-only vlog and the 7 Day Qi Challenge — so there are always lots of options to choose from.
One of the greatest benefits of Qigong is that you gradually can become your own superior doctor. Doing these practices will put you in touch with your body in subtle ways. You’ll develop sensitivity to both the emotional and physical conditions in your body. The whole idea is that eventually, you’ll be able to detect disease before it sets in. You’ll know the first signs of imbalance because Qigong teaches you how to listen to your internal wisdom.
Yes, there is 😃😃😃
