Vince Sauter has been studying Qigong and Tai Chi since 1997 at various local classes. He is now a Senior Trainer with the Institute of Integral Qigong and Tai Chi. In 2013 Vince started teaching Qigong and Tai Chi classes locally and soon after was hired by the Omega Institute in Rhinebeck, NY. Since that time, Vince has continued to practice and study to expand his knowledge and provide a powerful learning experience for his students. Among his certifications are the following:
1. Senior Trainer with Institute of Integral Qigong and Tai Chi.
2. Level One Instructor White Tiger 5 Element Qigong.
3. Certified in The Fundamentals of Rehabilitative Qigong and Tai Chi Level one.
4. Certified Qigong Healer.
5. Certified as a Tai Chi Qigong Shibashi Instructor.
Vince has studied with Michael Reed Gach, Ph.D., founder of the Acupressure Institute to better understand the role of the meridians and pressure points in the body and how it all interconnects with the healing aspects of Medical Qigong and Tai Chi. This combination of training has allowed him to connect with his students on a very different level and has helped him build the type of classes and workshops that he had always looked for but was unable to find on his own healing journey.
Vince tries to focus on keeping the cultivation of Qi accessible to everyone by presenting “Tai Chi Easy” developed by Dr. Jahnke, founder of the Institute of Integral Qigong and Tai Chi, as a foundation for learning. This form integrates gentle movements with meditation and self-massage and breath work that will help to reduce stress, improve balance, and improve overall health and well-being. This foundation can then be expanded upon so the student can develop a long lasting personal practice of Qigong and Tai Chi.
In 2018 Vince published his first book “Everyday All day” to aid in developing your own personal practice. The book explores ways to incorporate Qigong into your everyday life to reap the most benefit from the practice.
Since the onset of Covid-19 Vince has taken all of his in person classes online. Links to these classes can be found on this website. He is also doing online classes for the Healer Within Foundation and the Institute for Integral Qigong and Tai Chi. More information about Vince’s classes and workshops can be found at the following website: www.clearstreamtaichi.com. This website was created to provide free information and practice videos for his students to help them in developing their own personal Qigong and Tai Chi practice.
