Mario Argento

Mario Argento the founder of Qigong Calgary has emerged as one of today’s most accessible and accomplished teachers of Qigong in Calgary. He presents easy-to-learn practices that will help you relieve pain, clear stress and tension, and harness your body’s unequaled capacity for self-restoration.

He developed his passion for Qigong in 2001 when he turned to the practice as an alternative health treatment to heal his back injury. Since then Mario has studied various schools of Medical Qigong including Eight Silk Brocade, Daoist Qigong, Spring Forest Qigong, Supreme Science Qigong, ZY Qigong, Shibashi Qigong and others.

He teaches Qigong because he believes that it is highly effective in preventing and healing chronic illness and methods such as Qigong will be an essential part of a sustainable health care system.

He understands the need to combine Qigong and natural healing principles into ones daily routine to counter the stress of modern day work environment and keep the body, mind and spirit healthy.

Qigong was his healer and is now his passion in life. He continues to study alternative methods of healing with focus on energy work and has successfully completed Healing Touch Program L4, Spring Forest Qigong L3, Anatomy for Healers, Reiki L2, Pranic Healing L2 and Quantum Touch.

Patti Wardlaw

Driven by a deep desire for inner peace and health, Patti has spent over 20 years learning and experiencing various healing modalities and spiritual teachings. When Patti discovered qigong her long held anxiety and fatigue virtually diminished and her health, happiness and vitality increased substantially.

Inspired by her experience, Patti was compelled to share qigong with others, and in June 2016, she completed the Medical Qigong Teacher Training Certification offered by Mario Argento of Qigong Calgary.

In August 2016 Patti began sharing qigong with others. Located in inner southwest Calgary, Patti now offers group classes several times a week. She also offers private and semi-private coaching sessions and is available to teach qigong at workshops or events.

Patti creates a warm and compassionate space for transformation and healing by incorporating meditation and self-reflection into her classes. She also encourages her students to be humble and gentle with themselves as they find practical ways to integrate qigong into their daily lives.

Patti has been overwhelmed by the positive response to her teachings, and embraces each class as an opportunity to deepen her connection to her students.

Darlene Abraham

From the beginning of my teenage years, I knew that what I wanted to do most in life was to make a positive difference!In so many ways over the past forty-seven years, guided by my faith in the great Divine, I have been privileged to accomplish just that!

In 2007, I was introduced to qigong!  WOW! My qigong practice has come to be all about the healing that can be experienced through the power of unconditional love!  It incorporates Spring Forest Qigong, 8 Silk Brocades, Wisdom Qigong styles and Shibashi Qigong.

Always a learner, I am constantly seeking ways in which to improve and deepen my practice!  I love sharing my knowledge of the amazing wonder of this practice with others, hopefully, at the same time, providing opportunities for each of us to experience the power of our body’s innate ability to transform its own vital energy, clear blockages, and feel better!!!
