Lee Holden Testimonials
“Lee’s Qi Gong DVD’s are the perfect tool to help refocus and energise the mind, body and spirit. I found them to be a wonderful aid in connecting me to my body’s natural rhythms and to relax, especially in such a fast-paced world…he’s cute too!“
“It’s the most do-able and relaxing thing that I’ve seen in a long time. You don’t have to turn yourself into a pretzel or anything, and it doesn’t seem like exercise. It feels good for your body. The Upper Back DVD is perfect for me. I feel great, relaxed and open.“
“I began my Qigong study with Lee in the autumn of 2005 at Five Branches Institute. I completed the Qigong Instructor’s course with him and went on to study Buddha Palm and Six Healing sounds over the following years in workshops with him and GrandMaster Mantak Chia. I was in Hangzhou, People’s Republic of China in 2006-7 and worked out regularly in the parks with hundreds of people doing morning exercises. From the depth and accuracy of Lee’s teaching, I was oftimes complimeted on the execution of Taijiquan or certain esoteric and difficult Qigong forms. My praises for Lee Holden have no ceiling. He is Master Holden.“
