  • “I have been doing qigong and taichi for years, and I find the course simple and at the same time meticulous. Structured in a simple way to learn and at the time for thanks to the different sections.”
  • “Great class this my third video with Des,I always learn something.”
  • “Excellent explanation of the subtleties of wu ji. I felt an immediate shift while practicing under the guidance in this video. Alot of these subtleties are overlooked, but here they are explained with great clarity. Thank you for creating this course!”
  • “Clear instruction and demonstrations. Feel the chi when do the movements. Each movement has multiple parts. Plenty of follow along repetitions and tips to get the patterns. Thanks.”
  • “Thanks Des-I’ve been ‘practising’ Tai chi and qigong for many years and not been taught properly and was confused by the flowery language that often seemed more like poetry than guidelines.Your two current online courses turn theory into application and precise practice in very effective ways for me.I look forward to absorbing this knowledge at a gentle pace;so it’s great to have it available whenever I need it.”
  • “A great Teacher of Qigong, it was a privilege to take this course! I could feel the Qi moving while performing each exercise. Quick response to questions asked, much appreciated! I look forward to taking more courses in the future. Humble thanks!”
  • “I found this course to be well organized and well presented, by an instructor who clearly embodies the Qigong he has learned. The content is excellent. Thank you.”
  • “Another good course from Des Lawton. From the course introduction and explanation of terms which are nice and clear, to the well structured lessons with lots of detail of what to focus on which enhances the exercises the course is well authored. Des is certainly well versed in Qi gong and has a good presentation manner which makes learning enjoyable. For me this course has enhanced my understanding of the workings of Qi gong and will improve my practice of other forms. I would recommend this course to both beginners and experienced practitioners as it is written and presented in such a way as to be easily followed by either.”

From Connecting Heaven and Earth Qigong: –
Qigong Course Reviews from Connecting Heaven and Earth Qigong

  • “This Qigong course is so applicable and well done–a real treasure to add to your toolbox for promoting wellness. Instructor Des Lawton of “Connecting Heaven and Earth Qigong” is an adept teacher of ancient and complex material, whose method transmits the essentials to students, allowing them to achieve a meaningful practice immediately, creating the foundation for continued study. There was emphasis on developing self-awareness and attunement to the mind-body connection which is helpful in all aspects of improved quality of life. An example of this was the lesson on posture that through practical exercises brings to light awareness of one’s body’s habitual balance developed over a lifetime so that the student can develop correct stance and connection to maximize energy flow and centering. Another amazing asset is that unlike many other online course instructors in this discipline, Mr. Lawton is personally accessible and answers questions, truly caring about providing each one of his students an engaging, rewarding experience. I look forward to learning more from this gifted and professional teacher!”
  • “Excellent course. Great explanation of theory and good, clear instructions. Well paced. Highly recommended.”
  • “The descriptions of the movements; external and internal are so clear. The discussion on what to focus on after learning the movements helped me immensely. Extremely well taught.”
  • “I’ve tried about 90 different styles of qigong before but I still learned a lot from this course. Sensing the qi is the most important new lesson that I have not been taught from other teachers.”
  • “I very much enjoyed this course from Des Lawton. I will be enrolling in his other courses and any future courses he publishes. I learned a lot besides just how to mimic the movements – in fact just the lesson on Wuji stance was worth the price of admission.”
  • “The depth of seemingly simple movements, described in a clear manner. The view from the front and side simultaneously gives you a lot better idea how the movement is made. A big help if you are new to qigong. If you are a seasoned qigong practitioner, this course holds plenty of gems to deepen your practice. Thank you! Tony”
  • “Course explained some points I was unclear on. Very helpful in my qigong experience and learning.”
  • “Very clearly and concisely explained.”
  • “Des is thorough and very measured in his teaching. I like the way he has broken the form down and each movement is performed multiple times for better learning. I also like to see the side and front views simultaneously.”
  • “Introduction to self and Qigong very clear and understandable. The explanation of key words by text where the learner can review them later is very helpful, (also a good reminder for experienced learners). Breakdown of the moves were very well explained and gave ample time to practise. Explanations were very clear and understandable and directions easy to follow. Demonstration of the full movement was again very clear to follow and gave ample time to practice. Overall I feel this course was well put together, well presented and met the expectations. Course is ideal for both beginning and experienced learners, I myself was reminded of many aspects in relation to my Qigong practice which is always helpful. Having attended courses delivered in person by Des Lawton I can see that he has applied the same open indepth instruction here as he does in person. I would recommend this course to those new to Qigong and experienced practitioners.”
  • “Course is well structured and very detailed, using the methods taught in the syllabus I feel more confident of my practice of this qigong sequence and have a better understanding of the internal aspects of the practice to focus the mind to develop my practice. The individual break down of each movement is very helpful and gives you the internal meridian points to focus your mind on as you perform each movement, the completed sequence is very calming and I can already feel improved reduction in tension throughout the body the longer I perform the movements. The listening exercises are interesting and the changes in sensations vary with time and focus during practice . I would highly recommend this course for beginners and experienced qigong practitioners.”
  • “The course is very well explained and taken right from the beginning so that it’s not necessary to know anything about it first. It’s important to get an understanding of the background to Qi Gong too. Very helpful.”
  • “Very comprehensive and multi-layered:a real masterclass!”
  • “He’s very thorough”
  • “Excellent course. Clear and detailed video instruction building up the set/sequence slowly and carefully. Great student support. A real sense of one-to-one teaching with a personal touch from an expert.”
  • “Easy to understand. Now need to put it into practice.”
  • “this course is excellent! the pace is perfect with detailed instructions, the camera angles of the instructor, along with the meridian lines and points are also very helpful. The instructor is 100% knowledgeable and sincere.”
  • “As a complete beginner to Qigong the pace, explanation and content is well presented and easy to understand. “
  • “enjoyed course learned several things I did not know even though I have been practising Tai Chi for a number of years”
  • “Excellent course. The instructor is very knowledgeable, and explains all aspects of qigong very thoroughly. I would definitely recommend this course.”
  • ” found this course to reinforce the best of what I have learned over the last four years of serious (or should I say light-hearted) Qigong practice and study. The teaching is thorough and well-spoken. I appreciate the time the instructor takes to have the student experience each component of the teaching without any sense of rush – just as it should be! Thank you.”
  • “These are wonderful forms. The teaching is very clear. Anyone who practices qigung seriously should experience this form.”
  • “Very easy to follow and well explained.”
  • “very clear explanations setting the outline and expectations clearly and encouraging participants to continue. the illustrations during the movement sequences were particularly helpful”
  • “Excellent information and, rarely shared insight about the subject!”
  • “Clear instruction and demonstrations. I could feel the chi after doing the movements.”
  • “An absolute gem of a course which I wholeheartedly recommend to anyone looking to begin, or to improve, the practice of Qigong. A very knowledgable, experienced instructor communicates what you need to know, in a natural, friendly, understandable way. Detailed images show important focal points on the body, and video footage gives a superbly clear demonstration of how to do the physical movements – the excercises shown both frontally, and in profile. The most common beginner’s errors are explained, as well as how to correct them, and the deeper experience that comes through repeated practice is intimated, but left to the individual to discover freely for themselves. Navigation back and forth to refer to various points is so easy, the content so well organised, that the result is a truly flexible, effective learning tool – and a resource you can keep and refer back to anytime! The instructor responds promptly and fully to any questions about the course matter too, so it’s as near as you could wish to having one-to-one tuition from a teacher in the privacy of your own home! This course offers an authentic, user-friendly means to enable practice at your own pace, and the reassurance that your instructor is there if you have any doubts or questions. Thank you Des Lawton!”
  • “very simple and clear lecture”
  • “A very simple series of movements to learn from and memorize. Good job!”
  • “This is the best Wuji stance explanation I’ve found. Very very good teacher. I am happy and grateful that I found him. He explains all in detail and slowly. It is exactly what you need when you are new to this.”
  • “Great course very well delivered in a sincere and freindly manner,thank you.”
  • “Highly regarded both qigong set itself and teaching style…………….. The set and the Teacher are highly recommended.”
  • “Very good. Good explanations, a good breakdown of each move and then a sequence to follow.”
  • “Nice explainations delivered very clearly. Like the glossary of terms.”
  • “Mr Lawton was recommended by my teacher Laura. I am a student of the Glasgow School of Shiatsu. My teacher mentioned to take a few Qi gong classes which will help enhance my learning and knowledge……… All I know, is that I would definitely attend a live class session if I ever got the chance. I liked how to listen to my Ki as I had been wondering how it was done.”

From the Five Taoist Yin Qigong: –
Qigong Course Reviews from the Five Taoist Yin Qigong

  • “”The Five Taoist Yin Qigong” course offers detailed instruction and explanations regarding both internal and external aspects of the practice in addition to the instructor modelling poses, often shown from two angles and with arrows and lines added to highlight key areas of attention in posture and activation of qi: Des Lawton demonstrates teaching-integrity and respect for his students, and knows how to facilitate student understanding, awareness and true progress, encouraging the students’ desire to learn. I’ve taken other courses from people who may know how to go through the outer movements with good form themselves and have impressive “temple” credentials and an exotic nationality, but they lack the ability to impart knowledge which is the essential attribute of a teacher and also calls into question their own depth of understanding. Other aspects of this course that lead to more rapid personal growth are paradoxically the emphasis on 1) form and awareness versus speed and 2) cultivation of listening jing, which both initially require an exercise of patience. The course supplemental materials are helpful, including the subtitles, and it is also a tremendous resource that Mr. Lawton makes himself available to answer questions.”
  • “Professional course with fair bit of detail – by FAR the best information I have been able to find on the Daoist Yin Qigong moves. I’m reasonably experienced in taiji and qigong, and found this helpful, including the repetition of the basics (you really can’t get enough of that). “
  • “Clear and well explained.”
  • “The best, most detailed, course in everything-important tai chi. The teacher is sincere in striving to relate all the nuances. LOVE this course and very much appreciate!”
  • “Very good explanations and contextualisation; the subtitles reinforce the very valuable content.”
  • “Very clear explanation”
  • “A great wealth of detail presented in a very clear way. Following the instructor as he carries out the exercise gives me a chance to experience the ‘Chi’ flow. Setting and quality of the recording (picture and sound) is excellent.”
  • “I like the instructors openness with regard to his own experiences and his aims for the course. The lessons which he intends to impart will lead to a truer understanding of Chi.”
  • “Very detailed and useful. I feel that this is authentic qigong with all the benefits that go with it.”
  • “clearest Wuji stance definition I’ve ever received :)”
  • “Excellent course and detailed instructions as to how to do the movements – in particular the Wuji stance is explained in detail and very thoroughly. This stance has such a lot of different and confusing explanations online and in Qigong/Tai Chi books.”
