Who is this Training for?
- It's for Everyone

The Forest Rock Qigong approach is practical, enjoyable and easy to follow and is for anyone at any level of experience.

It begins at a level that anybody can grasp and as the course progresses your understanding of the technical aspects of Qigong and the theoretical aspects of TCM will grow to a higher level.

The practices themselves are very accessible - you don't have to be extremely flexible or have aerobic fitness to perform the movements.


Develop Your
Personal Practice

or Teach Others

You can join the training to increase the quality of your private practice and learn more about the technical TCM aspects of Qigong exercises, or you to learn to teach other people at a high level of understanding of Qigong in both the physical practices and the theoretical level.

Anyone can perform the Qigong systems taught during the training and they are ideal to teach people to help them de-stress and to get tension out of their bodies.

Qigong exercises are good for hyperactive children or to help the elderly with balance and longevity, they can be used for rehabilitation, or to maintain great health and you can share the knowledge you gain to help your family, friends, and your children.

Hear From Our Students

Vanessa Tomasselli

"Peter Caughey is extremely knowledgeable and he uses a communication form that can be easily digested; especially for those who have never hear of Qigong and TCM before.

He also has the power to transmit his knowledge and experience via his Qigong live sessions."

Walter Askins

"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."

Erica 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!"

"Slow motion in the art of Qigong raises our awareness towards ourselves and the place around us. One of the emotions practitioners have is a sense of spaciousness and calmness during it (the Qigong practice)."

- Hamad Alkhalaf

Tommy Mack

"I highly recommend the Qigong teacher training course with Forest Rock Qigong.

Peter Caughey shares his knowledge and practice of Qigong creating an amazing experiential course. The course provided comprehensive and in-depth learning of Qigong practices and techniques.

I feel equipped to confidently teach Qigong to others and have already began teaching and sharing this wonderful practice with my students. Thank you!”

Julia Hackzell

"I'm very humbled to be part of this journey and I've felt the connection.

It's been an anchor in my life as there has been a lot uncertainty and the training supported me in letting go of many things I had no control of.

This course has given me more tools to lean into and encouraged me to 'be' rather than to 'try' more."

Leon Campbell

"This course gave me the greatest detail and depth of knowledge about qigong and TCM than anything I have done before. If you really want to know the true essence of qigong, this is the course.


I knew there was a new pathway I was about to walk and I truly feel I have found my guide. I thank you for your wisdom and open heart Peter."

Our Senior Forest Rock Teachers

Emi Vizhanyo

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.

Mark Beesley

Mark is trained in both classical and modern forms of Qigong with over 900 hours of teacher training experience through the Forest Rock Taiji and Qigong School. This has helped him to teach in a way that combines the Mental, Physical and Spiritual aspects of Qigong.

Mark is also a qualified Addiction/Mental Health Counsellor. He likes introducing Qigong to his clients as it helps to slow down the mind and connects to something outside of us whether it be Earth, Nature or Spirit.
