Changing Lives, One Breath at a Time




Established in January 2003, SimplyAware delivers private, group and organization level training, locally and internationally. Co-Founders Sifu Chris and Sifu Fayne have devoted their lives to distilling rich ancient teachings into clear, accessible training programs. By integrating wisdom and techniques from traditional Chinese Medicine and Western Therapeutic modalities, our Qigong Principles™ based training programs are designed to optimize the human experience on physical, mental and emotional levels.



Our traditional training approach means no short cuts and no watered down technique. We offer only time honored, Principle based training, handed down to us, for you. We focus on fundamentals because without a strong foundation on which to build, nothing else matters. From day one, we encourage Principle integration into daily life. This methodology creates unique opportunities for personal growth. For us, Tai Chi and Qigong forms are simply tools which help uncover each student's unique, personal cultivation path.

  • Integrate body, mind, and heart within your training path and your full potential is within reach."

You have probably heard a lot about the many health benefits of Mindfulness based training programs such as Tai Chi, Qigong and Meditation.  So what makes SimplyAware training programs different?


Each person has to clearly understand their particular limitations on physical, mental and emotional levels before they can understand how to move past them in a safe, healthy manner. Every program we offer is deeply rooted in Qigong Principles. This unique emphasis on core integrity, solid foundation and strong posture allows students to develop from the inside.


Our understanding of both western and eastern traditions and training techniques allows us to produce and deliver highly effective training programs to a wide variety of clients.


Collectively, our team has over 8 decades of training and teaching experience. This gives us the ability to adapt to any student, under any training conditions and deliver a professional, custom tailored, training experience, every time.


Our Advisory Board is comprised of health professionals from Western and Eastern modalities who volunteer their wealth of  professional experience to inform our training programs, techniques  and materials. We are grateful to these special people for their encouragement and support.


Our depth of experience allows us adjust and adapt to any training environment. We have conducted trainings outside, inside, ballrooms, training rooms and even during a power outage. We have adapted training techniques to work with amateur and professional athletes from Golf, Football, Baseball, Tennis and Boxing.


We embody the Principles we teach into our daily lives and believe in their power to transform, down to our very core. For us, this is "Heart work" not "hard work" and we love every moment. We choose our instructors, partly for their depth of experience, but mostly for their passion. We believe that you can not effectively share what you do not understand, at your core.
