About the NQA Conference

For over two decades, the National Qigong Association (NQA) has been at the forefront of promoting the art and science of qigong in the United States. Established in 1996, the NQA has been dedicated to fostering community, sharing knowledge, and advancing the practice of qigong for health, healing, and vitality.

Our in-person conferences have been a cornerstone of the NQA's mission, providing a platform for qigong enthusiasts, practitioners, and experts to come together, learn, and grow. With a legacy spanning more than 20 years, the NQA Conference has earned a reputation for excellence, drawing attendees from across the country and beyond.

Meet Our Speakers

At the heart of every NQA Conference are the renowned qigong experts, teachers, and practitioners who generously share their wisdom and expertise with our community. This year, we are honored to present a lineup of speakers who are leaders in the field of qigong. Here are just a few of the luminaries you can expect to see at the 2024 conference. Stay tuned for updates as we announce additional speakers in the coming weeks.
