Radiant Lotus Women’s Qigong, Level 1

Daisy Lee has been supporting women in their quest for radiant health by teaching them a self-care practice called Radiant Lotus Women’s Qigong. Passed down to Daisy by her teachers in China, Tibet and the West, this rejuvenating Qigong system has helped thousands of women from all walks of life to reclaim their health and empowerment. RLWQ Level 1 is for women who are desiring optimum health, including those facing serious health challenges. The techniques are simple enough for any woman to do, regardless of age or health condition, with modifications made for those who are pregnant or managing a malignancy.  There are now more than 200 certified instructors in 13 countries who share this simple, natural, yet profound system of self-healing.

RLWQ Level 1 Instructor Certification (Pre-Requisites):

1. Women with a solid foundation of Qigong knowledge, with a minimum of 150 hours of documented training in this or another system of Qigong.
2. Teaching experience in Qigong, Tai Chi, Yoga or another “movement and energy-based” modality.
3. Two (2) years minimum of personal Qigong practice.
4. Candidates who have not had the opportunity to learn this system from Daisy directly must have taken classes with one of her certified RLWQ instructors or, if classes were not accessible, practiced with the ‘Radiant Lotus Qigong for Women, Level 1′ DVD for at least 30 hours in addition to the above.

Instructors-in-training must fulfill the following  before receiving their certificate:

  1. Do an oral group presentation on the final day of the program.
  2. Be able to capably demonstrate the techniques in the Level 1 program.
  3. Commit to an additional 100 days of practice at home.
  4. Pass an online exam after the 100 days of practice.

* Please note: participation does not guarantee certification…in order to be certified as a qualified instructor, due diligence of your practice must be done so that Daisy, the board and your future students are assured of your ability to represent the system well through your commitment to practice, attitude and thorough understanding of the constituent parts and whole of the practice.

To ensure continued quality of instruction for students, RLWQ Level 1 Certified Instructors must verify their teaching is current after 5 years in 1 of 2 ways: 

  • Submit a student registry with total number of hours taught or
  • Submit a class video of themselves teaching and
  •  Attend a weekend RLWQ update every 5 years to ensure quality instruction. (We are currently exploring technology that will allow this to happen online to make it more convenient for instructors if you are unable to travel to the nearest city for the live program)
