The Institute of Integral Qigong and Tai Chi was founded by Roger Jahnke, O.M.D.
The term Integral refers to the practices incorporated in this system, which are based on the primary recurring concepts that have existed throughout the various styles of qigong over 5000+ years of development.
IIQTC practices include Tai Chi Easy™, a combination of Qigong and Tai Chi designed to readily assist mobility of students; and the Ten Phases of Qigong Development, a conceptual road map to assist development of qigong practices for different levels of development.
Wan Jian Qiang was the Director of the Chinese San He Qigong Life Science Research Center prior to moving to the United States.
The term San He means Three Together, and refers to the Chinese philosophy of energy from the universe, the earth, and a human combining together. This concept recurs frequently in qigong philosophy.
In October 1998, Masters Yang Zhenduo and Yang Jun established the International Yang Family Tai Chi Chuan Association, uniting the Yang Chengfu Tai Chi Chuan Centers.
The first Yang Chengfu Tai Chi Chuan Centers were created in the U.S. in 1995 by Masters Yang Zhenduo and Yang Jun and their top students. Currently, there are 28 Centers in 12 countries.
The Yang Chengfu Tai Chi Chuan Centers are committed to teaching Traditional Yang Style Tai Chi as taught by the Yang Family in China.
