He has over 30 years of experience in Qi Dao and other Energy Arts taught by his Grandfather who was the last Grand Master of this unique style of form-free Qigong.

Lama Tantrapa’s coaching has inspired many professional athletes, speakers, dancers, singers, writers and actors to open up to the infinite source of intuition that exists within everyone. He is the founder of Academy of Qi Dao – the first and only School of Qigong Coaching in the world.
