  • Patrick W. Tacoma WA. Attorney 1/7/2015

    “When I first signed up for the Level 1 Yi Ren qigong weekend seminar with Brendan Thorson I was a little skeptical about the whole seminar. A close friend of mine had recommended the seminar because he had received great benefits from it, but I still had my doubts about qigong in general. On the very first day, I was surprised to discover how practical and ‘down to earth’ the Yi Ren qigong seminar was in general. I also appreciated Brendan’s personal account of how the practice had transformed his own life. I was also surprised to experience an undeniable healing energy working in my body during and after the seminar ended. It became readily apparent that the practice was not just theoretical, but that I could receive immediate benefits from the practice. I would highly recommend taking qigong classes from Brendan. He is not only a very experienced and knowledgeable teacher, but he is also not afraid to address any concerns or questions that you have in regard to the practice. Take his class and you will not regret it.”

  • Brittany L. Woodinville, WA. 11/22/2015

    I was briefly introduced to Qi Gong while I was attending a program at Evergreen State College back in 2013. A few years after I returned to Seattle I decided to find a real Qi Gong expert (Master) nearby to help me resolve reoccurring disruptive thoughts and emotional instabilities. Throughout the years I have tried many forms of treatment (both traditional and non-traditional) in hopes to recover my vitality and stop the destructive cycle of addiction, paranoia, and depression in my life. Some types of treatment I’ve tried have helped some haven’t; nonetheless, the help I received before was limited and my search for the cure lead me back to Qi Gong. While investigating online I found Brendan’s website (TaichiQigongSeattle.com), after reading through the site I decided to reach out to him.

    During all of our personal sessions I’ve felt safe, fully attended to, and free to ask questions or share feelings I was experiencing. His teaching style is empowering, grounding, and comprehensive. In addition to teaching he offered DVD’s and a manual (for purchase) to reinforce what was taught. Brendan Thorson has been teaching Qi Gong for over a decade and it shows! His presence has instilled trust, curiosity, and awareness within me. Another strong quality Brendan has is his patience to complete a lesson and flexibility to find a time that works for you.

    I will continue to follow his lead; I am so excited to see what lies ahead. Reflecting over the last few weeks the most significant changes I’ve noticed are emotional. Often times after we finish a practice I feel more in touch with my body, mental clarity, and openness to engage with others without losing my sense of self. The urge to use or react to triggers is slowly starting to diminish. Old vicious thinking/behavior patterns are starting to become weakened and hollow. The voyage to health continues. I encourage anyone else who is interested in regaining internal balance to contact him!

    Brendan’s Qigong instruction was the best I have ever received. Why? Because the skills I learned from him helped to save my life. A few years ago I was thrown an unexpected challenge that knocked me off balance in a big way. I wasn’t sure how I could cope let alone recover and hopefully flourish. As fate would have it, I soon found myself in one of Brendan’s Introductory sessions. At the end of that one hour I felt so much better and asked if I could immediately start a series of sessions with him.

    In the months that followed I learned many things I didn’t know including ways to connect with and increase my own energy. I started to become comfortable in my body as a sense of ease and deep peace began to grow. Most importantly, I learned to reach for the positive and be kinder to myself.

    I’ve known several people who have benefited from Brendan’s healing sessions, including a dear friend who was very sick and near the end of her life. In his genuine and caring way, Brendan tuned into each of our specific circumstances and tailored the sessions to our individual needs.

    Brendan is truly a gifted teacher and healer who practices what he teaches and shares what he knows. I would recommend him to anyone who needs a little, or a lot, of support, understanding and help with their personal growth.

    I’ve had the good fortune to come across Brendan as a Qi Gong Student and quickly noticed how patient, thorough and knowledgeable Brendan was with the application of focused awareness. He has displayed in-depth knowledge of the Qigong system that he teaches (Yi Ren) and was instrumental in advancing my interest to take serious approach to this system as a life-changing modality that I had long searched for, often in vain. I was encouraged by the process that was applied in finding contact with my body’s internal energy and noticed during the seminar work many energetic openings inside of my body that gave me indication that i was relaxing into a deeper state, letting go of long-held old tensions/fears that I had been previously unable to do on my own or with other practitioners. Similarly with his body work techniques he has shown that he is very strong and firm, consistent yet gentle. Brendan applies (apparently) very advanced knowledge of the body’s structure and function to enable release of long held aches and pains, as well as emotional burdens that are held unconsciously. If you are not in a hurry and want to find a path that will bring you to inner peace, I recommend Brendan For his Qi Gong teaching and experience. I have had 3 other Qi Gong instructors, and none of them came close to the depth and breadth of knowledge and power that he brings to the room. If you have body work needs and can handle deep body work, then he is also an excellent choice.

    My experience with Brendan’s therapeutic approach to connect mind and body has turned out to be extremely helpful. In the last two years, his knowledge and guidance helped me in coping with my pains and stiffnesses. Also, I have noticed that since I practice the YiRen QiGong with Brendan, I feel emotionally and physically more stable and more joyful than before. I also appreciate that he has been able to give me very simple exercises for my daily routine, which still noticeably improve my condition.

    Brendan works very thoroughly and is very sensitive in finding the right treatment for your specific situation. I fully recommend Brendan’s movement therapeutic approach.

  • After years of PT, Massage Finally Releases My Arm & Shoulder. Nancy, September 2009

    I did physical therapy for two years for my stuck shoulder and arm, but it didn’t improve. So I decided to see if Brendan could help me with his massage. After one session with Brendan, my arm and shoulder was moving without pain and stiffness. Brendan did deep massage above my shoulder and under my armpit to break up the stiff muscles and my arm and shoulder finally feel normal again.
