Lee Holden

Lee Holden first discovered the healing power of Qi Gong and tai chi after experiencing injuries that nearly sidelined his varsity soccer career at the University of California, Berkeley. Impressed at how these ancient practices healed his body and allowed him to return to playing, he made their study a priority. Today, he is an internationally known instructor in meditation, tai chi, and Qi Gong, as well as a licensed acupuncturist, herbalist, and author. Lee graduated from UC Berkeley with a BA in Psychology, and is also a graduate of the Five Branches Institute in Santa Cruz, a leading acupuncture college in the United States.
