Open Up To The Possibility Of Change:
Become A Qigong Teacher

Hi, 

I’m Peter Caughey, founder of the Forest Rock Taiji & Qigong School. 

I’m a Doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine, an Acupuncturist, a Chinese medical Herbalist and a Medical Qigong and Tuina Practitioner.

I am also a Master of Qigong and Taiji (Tai Chi) and I have been training and teaching for 30 years.

Qigong is such a beautiful vehicle to bring your mind and body into the present moment and to have experiences of yourself as an energetic being. It takes you into your heart where you get to visit the real you. This can give you an opportunity to discover why you are here, alive on this planet and it may even give you a glimpse of your purpose in life. 

You get to feel a deeper connection to other people and nature. When you walk around, you can feel that you are part of something bigger than yourself. This gives you the ability to look out into the world with different eyes, with clarity and a new sense of wonder. You will see the world very, very differently than you did before. You will see yourself in your life in a new way because of the newly found visions and expressions.

Chinese Medicine sees the physical body energetically and it has been studying for thousands of years how to bring the physical body and mind back into balance to restore harmony. I have studied Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) for 30 years and I am still mesmerised how accurate it is.

Qigong is an integral component of TCM. I teach Qigong exercises with the understanding of their TCM functions, not just the physical aspect of the exercises but with the deeper understanding of how the energy or Qi moves in the deep levels of the body and how it effects the homeostasis of the inner functioning and organs of the body. 

Come and join me for this Qigong Teacher Training. It will change your life and as you open up, you step through a different doorway in your life. 

You will get to look out into the world with very different eyes. You will get to bring more happiness into your life and will experience more joy by doing what you love in life. 

Live with passion and live your new life in your brand new world.

See you on the Training.

Much care,

Peter Caughey

Emi Vizhanyo // Senior Forest Rock Qigong Teacher

Emi’s Qigong journey started when she was recovering from a surgery that didn’t go well. She was left with scars and excruciating pain that affected every aspect of her life. Since very early in her practice, she felt the self-healing qualities of Qigong and that led her through various practices from medical Qigong to the classical sets and to the newest addition, Taiji.

She believes Qigong is a simple path to feeling healthier, happier, and more vibrant.

These clinics typically do not accept insurance (though you may be reimbursed through your insurance provider) and are relatively inexpensive. If situations require extreme medical emergency care, patients are evacuated to Singapore. Due to significant cost evacuation care, it is advisable to check this coverage is included on your medical plan.

There will be scheduled free time each week. However, because this is a 200 hour training and we have a lot to cover, there won’t be large amounts of it.

Hear From Our Students

Erika Eden

“Words can hardly convey the konwledge and skills you will gain from this Qigong Teacher Training.

Open and allow, and you will gain value far beyond just teaching skills; your life will shift and grow magnificently!”

Walter Askin

“This course is much more than Qigong. it is the creation of a community of people coming together to learn and create friendships that could last a lifetime. In a lot of online courses based on Qigong, it is all about the movement, the exercise.

In this course it is about people. People learning about Qigong to help people.”

Dave Hoyle

“It has been a privilege to study with Pete. I’m experiencing myself very differently to how I was 9 weeks ago. Thai massage is my everyday and the way I’m experiencing my work and the way I’m connecting to my clients, experiencing another system and being able to read that, has developed so much.”
