As a top, internationally known Qigong master, Mingtong will share the qi wisdom that has been passed between masters for 5000 years and shared with people in need. The World Qigong Congress named him World Qigong Master of the Year. “Qigong is a daily mind-body practice that opens your ability to recover vitality, joy and wellness through gentle, non-invasive means,” he said. “Qigong belongs in everybody’s fitness routine at every age to prevent illness and support recovery.” Leading wellness professionals have talked about Qigong, including Dr. Oz who said on the Oprah show: ”If you want to be healthy and live to 100, do Qigong.” He also added that Qigong reverses the aging process.

“Through practice, the right and left brain and upper and lower body start to talk again—quick thinking, resilience, and abundant energy can return at any age,” Mingtong Gu stated.” Even for the new student, the Qigong movement and meditation quickly builds flexibility, clarity and strength.”

Students report profound results through dedicated practice in classes or retreats with Master Gu at the helm. “I went from being a cancer survivor with limited energy to being well, and having my mind, body and entire life revitalized,” Chi Center student Gina Thompson said.

Master Gu founded the Petaluma Chi Center and its Workshops and Retreats based on his training at the largest Qigong medicine-less hospital in China, where people with exhaustion, stress, heart conditions, cancer or back pain came to learn how to reverse the aging and illness process. “Qigong grew so popular, because students quickly realized the mind was just waiting to be woken up to take care of health and joy,” Master Gu said.
