Principle Based Training

A lifetime of training in centuries old knowledge, distilled into 8 foundational principles, within each breath. We are focused on the functional application of mindful movement as a tool for personal evolution. You will explore the structural mechanics, applied science and energy behind the practice with your entire physical, mental and emotional being. You will learn to embrace and work with challenges, not push them aside.
We offer solutions, not band-aids.

Just some of what you can expect from our training.

PAIN MANAGEMENT

Pain is not the enemy. It is your body asking for help. We teach you to listen deeply and develop tools to reduce or even eliminate chronic pain. Are you ready for relief?

STRESS MANAGEMENT

As a leading cause of dis-ease, holding on to stress literally, and slowly steals your health. Learn how to identify root causes and gain tools to reduce stress from your world.

EMOTIONAL BALANCE

Emotions are part of the human experience and sometimes they can be overwhelming. When we understand them, our emotional balance improves greatly. Are you in control?

STRENGTH

Persistent, gentle effort is more effective at getting results without threat of injury. Develop your core strength, stabilize injuries and release guarding, safely and effectively. What do you want to strengthen?

FOCUS

In this bigger, better, faster world, learning to truly quiet your mind is no easy task. There are many techniques, from many disciplines. Which one is right for you?

HAPPINESS

With a strong body, a quiet mind and balanced emotions, your heart becomes free. This freedom gives you permission to express yourself unconditionally. What does happiness feel like to you?

A Truly Unique Training Model

Principle Based Training Explained

Our unique, proven training model invites you to explore our 8 Qigong Principles, one month at a time. These principles focus on developing physical, mental and emotional integrity. Each SimplyAware instructor is specially trained in these 8 Principles and shares them with you though the filter of their training and personal experience. Because these Principles are about the human experience, they can be applied to virtually any training discipline.

Focused Attention = Greater Results

Each month, we bring attention to a different Qigong Principle . We invite you to bring that specific Qigong Principle into your focus and explore how it can impact your training and personal life. This concentrated attention heightens your awareness and understanding in a way that no other training can.
