completed my training as a Medical Qigong Therapist with Master
Robert Youngs. I completed the program by attending a combination
of intensive courses and regular weekly courses so I am able to
comment on both style of classes offered by Master Youngs. To put
it simply, the learning experience in both types of classes were of
very high quality. The material taught in the course often exceeded
what is covered in the textbook both in scope and in depth. In my
opinion, I got very good value in education for the tuition that I
paid, which I found very reasonable compared to other professional
level training courses that are available.
Master Youngs’ style
of teaching emphasizes clinical experience, which was very appreciated
by all the students because we were very well prepared for educating
clients about qigong and answering their questions in a clinical
context. We got to see the results of our qigong treatments by
working with different clients in the classroom clinic. My
correspondence with other medial qigong practitioners revealed that
Master Youngs is very well respected by other medical qigong
practitioners in North America for his deep qigong knowledge and
commitment to teaching.
At first the thought
of having to drive from downtown Toronto to Pickering during rush-hour
once a week to complete this program is enough to dissuade anyone.
However it only took one class to change my mind as I found myself
waiting impatiently for class each week. In retrospect, I feel
privileged to have studied with Master Youngs because in addition to
his expertise and clinical experiences with medical qigong, he also
has extensive professional and teaching experience in its allied arts
such as acupuncture, meditation, internal martial arts and massage
therapy. It is evident that he has a very deep understanding of
energetic healing modalities from Eastern and Western traditions, but
more importantly by drawing on his experiences, he is able to
illustrate their similarities to students in class to enrich their
learning experience. I found Master Youngs’ diverse background
contributed immensely in giving me a deeper understanding of qigong
and confidence as a therapist. I am convinced that there is simply no
way that I could have received the same level of medical qigong
knowledge from anyone else in Canada. I give him my highest possible
recommendation as a therapist and as an instructor in medical qigong.
Although my training with him has come to an end, I look forward with
great anticipation to attending post-graduate level training seminars
with Master Youngs in the future.

You were there for me and, as a result, the work was deep and profound.
Thank you again."

I am a 58 year
old litigation lawyer. It is a high stress vocation and about fifteen
years ago I began to have very serious stress-related health problems.
My doctor “prescribed” tai chi and that led fairly quickly
to qigong. The results have been astonishingly positive. I am, quite
simply, healthy. I still get sick sometimes but I recover more quickly
than expected. The stress is still in the job but it is dispensed
with through the qigong practices. I am so very grateful to the
people at the Institute for helping me over a long period of time
to achieve the ability to maintain my health.
