Long Island Qi Holistics offers classes and private study programs based in the Thai Qi Holistics system, a method developed in Thailand which integrates the dual wisdoms of Medical Qigong and locally inherited “dhamma,” the Buddhist science of mind. Core to this approach is the in-depth study of personal alignment. Through mindful motion, individuals build awareness of the habitual body posture, movement, and breathing patterns that cause them suffering, both physically and mentally, in daily life. Through this process, they become empowered to recognize, accept, and transform the habits which do not serve their health and life goals, and learn to shift them toward a state of optimal wellbeing and confidence. In the TQH system, building body-mind awareness and understanding the body’s inherent capacity for healing are the foundations for spiritual growth.
Thai Qi Holistics education and healing center is located in Chiang Mai, Thailand. Grounded in Medical Qigong and Chinese medicine, its treatment programs offer tools to reclaim body-mind-spiritual health.
Services include: health rehabilitation programs, holistic education courses, retreats, and instructor qualification courses for students and patients of all nationalities. It is the principle training center for TQH Instructors worldwide.
Long Island Qi Holistics
Ashley Baldwin is a Long Island native whose Taiwanese family roots have guided her towards a global approach to life. Feeling limited by the allopathic paradigms of health that did not support her own wellbeing, she decided to pursue a career that would allow her to provide sustained holistic health, both for herself and others. In 2015, she was introduced to the TQH system of Qigong, immediately drawn to its capacity to support individuals in their continued physical, mental, and spiritual growth. Witnessing her own health and empowerment develop, Ashley began daily training under Qigong master and Chinese Medicine doctor Ajahn Toh, founder of the TQH system, in 2016, moving her base to Chiang Mai, Thailand. Since then, she has taught internationally in Thailand, Indonesia, and USA, and holds online sessions with students of various nationalities. She regularly teaches Qigong for senior health courses at Thailand’s Payap University and on Long Island, New York. In 2020, she began guiding Instructor trainees under TQH’s international Instructor Program; a true privilege and deeply humbling experience.
Currently, Ashley is a Senior Instructor at Thai Qi Holistics Central in Chiang Mai, Thailand; offers private and group instruction online; teaches and coaches USA-based TQH Instructor trainees; and is involved in the development of holistic health education and empowerment programs.
Ashley’s professional training includes TQH Qigong, Qi Massage therapy, and holistic diagnosis and treatment. She is a TQH Qualified Instructor under the Association of Thai Traditional and Alternative Medicine, recognized for developing future doctors and therapists in Holistic Medicine.
She has yoga teacher certifications from Om Sweet Om in Port Washington, NY (200-hr), and in Advanced Integrative Yoga in the Darshan Method from the Darshan Center in Chicago, IL (500-hr). She holds a BA in English Literature from Oberlin College.
Ashley is proud to introduce the TQH system in the USA – starting with her home community.
