Brendan Thorson, Instructor

Brendan Thorson, The Noble School of Taichi and Qigong Training

From my first Yi Ren® Qigong class in 1999, I realized this was the best method I had ever found to heal myself. Since then I have devoted my life to healing myself and others and, most importantly, teaching others to heal and empower themselves. I’ve also had five articles published in Qi: The Journal of Traditional Eastern Health and Fitness to help people learn about the many health benefits available from Yi Ren Qigong.

Student Testimonials

I have tried Qi Gong before and it felt so complicated and difficult to follow and I didn’t feel positive affects from it. But in this teaching, I sleep much better, I feel more grounded and I feel much more energy.

-Katelon, Licensed Massage Therapist

My life has made a 180 degree turn for the better since I’ve been taking Qi Gong / Tai Chi classes from Brendan.
