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.
