Background of Chi Gong Instructor

The practice of chi gong (qigong) is very much tied to the instructor, so I want to tell you a little about my background. The background of the instructor influences the styles she teaches and a good instructor maintains her own practice every day.

Grandmaster Wu: Learning from 1995-2006

Starting in 1995, I followed my mother to learn chi gong, tai chi, and kung fu from Grandmaster Weizhao Wu. Amongst some of his achievements: He recieved one of the highest titles of Qi Gong Master in China,  was considered a National Treasure, Western Fencing champion, and he contributed to the development of the provincial physical education curriculum in the province of Guangzhao. He also was an academic, and lead a 40-person research team into the benefits of his Wu’s eye qi gong program for high school students.

Chi gong (qigong) was his life-long hobby he learned from the mountain schools in China. He came to retire in Canada, he created the chi gong forms I teach today with the essential chi gong (qi gong) movements.

 

Master Teresa: Learning from 2006-Present

Following the passing of grandmaster Wu, I learned from his successor, my mother, Master Teresa, learning how to transform negative emotions such as grief, in the body using chi & chi gong (qigong):

  • Mind-body (psycho-somatic) expressions of stress
  • Embodied spiritual philosophies
  • Importance of honoring our feelings

Education Background

B.A. Honours Psychology
M.A. Early Childhood Studies
Masters of Pastoral Studies, Spiritual Care (Buddhism Foci) Candidate
& Researcher

Because of my interest in psychology and emotions in my adolescence due to my growing pains, I pursued post-secondary education.

When I experienced stress in my career, I began practicing daily and I realized over time that I wanted to incorporate Chi Gong (qigong) into my career. It is a calling to teach.

From Grandmaster Wu, I learned about qi gong for physical healing and through my mother, about chi gong for emotional healing.
