Lee Holden, Qigong expert

Lee Holden is an internationally celebrated Qigong expert whose teachings have popularized this ancient practice in the Western world.

His journey with Qigong began at the University of Berkeley, California, after a soccer injury led him to discover its healing powers. Conventional treatments had failed, but Qigong facilitated a swift recovery, igniting Lee’s passion to study intensively under masters like Grand Master Mantak Chia.

Now a familiar face on US and Canadian television, Lee’s books, classes, and workshops have gained global recognition, attracting diverse audiences, including corporations like Apple and celebrities such as Adam Sandler and Rob Schneider.


Lee’s books, stage appearances, and television appearances have transformed millions of people around the world. His Qigong video programs alone have been broadcast to over 50 million American households.

Lee is a certified doctor of Chinese medicine, graduating from Five Branches University in California. He also holds a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and has received numerous certifications from Qigong masters around the world.

In 2009, Lee received a special award from the International Chi Gong Association for his success in spreading esoteric Taoist teachings to audiences around the world without compromising or diluting their essence.
