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.

Donna Bilozir

We are all on a journey of self-discovery for spiritual, health and emotional well-being.  Life events led me to begin my journey 23 years ago. I have expanded my knowledge, improved my physical condition and eliminated pain through the study and practice of many different modalities.

Each one has added layers of understanding and appreciation for what our bodies can accomplish on their own when chi is flowing and balanced.

I have studied Taoist Tai Chi, Tong Ren, Medical Qigong, Bars™, Reiki, Crystal healing, Pneuma, Aromatherapy and Chinese herbology. Currently I am working through Level 2 of Mastering Alchemy.

After Qigong classes with Mario Argento, I realized the ease and grace that Qigong offers the entire body while being accessible to all.

I am so pleased to be offering classes in the Pincher Creek area.

Using a gentle approach in a nurturing environment, I will hold sacred space for attendees while we gently practice various forms of Qigong (Shibashi, Paida, Eight Silk Brocades) and short meditation.

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!!!
