2020 Camp Schedules

This year we will celebrate the 23rd annual June intensive training camp, where the group will begin Part II of GM Feng Zhiqiang’s 38 move Sabre form. It will also be the 14th year for which Dr. Yang has offered an Instructor Certification Camp for his evidence-based introductory EBQ and EBT programs (EBTQ Essential). Dr. Yang will offer a T'ai Chi for Stress and Chronic Pain Camp following the EBQT Essential Camp.

These relaxing (yet invigorating) camps offers insight into useful nuances of Chinese philosophy, and it provides an abundance of practical self-nurturing exercise. The newly developed EBQT Camp for Sleep and Anxiety, for example, represents a thorough system for dealing with the daily stresses that life throws at us. Like others in this series, these retreats will likely leave participants refreshed and eager for the next camp.

You are most welcome to apply for any camp that you would like to attend. The camps are identified as Beginning, Intermediate, and Advanced for relative comparison. Dr. Yang personally teaches all of the camps, and several teaching assistants are present to help answer any questions.
