AOMA offers taiji and qigong instruction throughout the year. The program provides students the opportunity to study with faculty who are internationally recognized and provides a variety of teaching styles from which to choose. AOMA believes that the internal development of qi facilitates focus and concentration and therefore enhances the studentsÕ educational experience. Additionally, students learn corrective and therapeutic exercises not only for self-care, but also as an additive to the treatment plans of their patients. Students are encouraged to study in depth the art of their choice and to continue to practice through their academic and professional careers as a means of balancing mind, body, and spirit while teaching their patients these skills. Three progressive levels of each art (taiji and qigong) are required for graduation.
