Robin’s history with the HWF and Dr. Jahnke, the founder.

I studied tai chi and qigong with Roger Jahnke from 2016 to 2019 during three intensive seminars. In 2019, I completed the 200 hour teacher training program with the IIQTC, the Institute of Integral Qigong and Tai Chi Being part of this community, or Qi Family, has been a wonderful support as I continue to grow and learn in my practice.

Dr. J published his book The Healer Within in 1997 and I am not exaggerating when I say that working with him and learning these practices has been life-changing. I am indebted to Dr. J and his many insights on self-healing through Chinese techniques. They have helped me enhance my health and I am committed to sharing these simple but profound self-healing practices with others in our community.

Interestingly, the Healer Within Foundation was founded in 2003 and is an IRS 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization┬ábased in Santa Barbara, California. You can learn more here: There are many archived practice sessions on the HWF’s Youtube channel.
