TAiJi and Qigong Instructors





David Peters L.Ac., LMBT, MSOM






       David has been learning TaiJi and Qigong for over 20 years. He began his journey learning from his dear friend and mentor Rene Ryan at The Light Heart Center in Winfield, IL.. While at The Wellness and Massage Therapy Institute studying for his first bodywork curriculum, David learned Ba Duan Jin (Eight Pieces of Brocade) Qigong. He learned this set of exercises from Rene and Jin Shin Do founder Iona Teeguarden. David also learned 5 Element TaiJi from the lineage of Chuangliang Al Huang. David has explored many forms of TaiJi and Qigong over the years and has been taught by many instructors. While he was attending Atlantic Institute of Oriental Medicine he was taught by Faculty Dean and Director of International Students Hsinpo Chen, M.A., M.S.  He prescribes TaiJi and Qigong exercises to many of his patients to reduce stress, increase circulation of blood and lymph flow, improve concentration and focus, increase balance and mindfulness of the mind-body connection. David has received many benefits from practicing TaiJi and Qigong over the years and desires to pass on his knowledge to anyone that chooses to learn. 

      David has also been studying and practicing the arts of internal practice, called NeiGong. He has been under the tutelage of world  renowned instructor and author Damo Mitchell. David has been teaching and practicing these methods for many years. He teaches Chinese Medicine Doctors and Acupuncturists how to connect with their energy (Qi) so they can utilize these arts in their clinical practices. 

      These arts are a way to connect to nature and its cycles. They are a mindful meditation through movement. TaiJi, QiGong and NeiGong are a way of balancing and harmonizing your own Qi. They are the arts of Longevity and are practiced by the sages and shamans of our time. You too can learn to connect to your body, mind and spirit better through practicing these arts. David invites to explore the arts with him at Long Life Wellness Center.
