Reyna Lerma is the co-owner of Present Moment Living® LLC, and QiCore® Inc. She currently hosts Zhineng Qigong classes, workshops, and retreats worldwide, often coordinated with other certified international instructors. Programs are offered both online and in person. She also continues to offer private instruction and individual Hunyuan Qi Therapy to clients who request those services.
She has studied Zhineng Qigong for 14 years and in that time, has logged over 5,000 personal practice hours and has been in retreat with Master Teachers for more than 1,500 hours.
Reyna was introduced to Zhineng Qigong in 2009 by Fay McGrew and worked closely with her for nine (9) years, becoming certified by the American Tai Chi and Qigong Association (2016) to teach Qigong. During that time, she also studied with Jane Jin, Jianshe Liu, Hou Hee Chan, and Master Yuantong Liu.
Reyna received certification to teach Chilel Qigong from Hou Hee Chan in 2014. Hou Hee Chan is the founder of Chilel Wellness in Rocklin, California, and was among the first teachers to officially introduce Zhineng Qigong to students in the United States.
Her work with Master Yuantong Liu of the Life Qi Center based in Meishan, China, began in 2012 and included attending retreats in Hawaii, China, Greece, Spain, and the US. During this time she became a Certified Hunyan Qi Therapist (2017) and received QiCore Improvement Certification (2018). She is also certified to provide Teacher Training in QiCore Improvement. In 2019, she traveled to Qingcheng Mountain to continue working with Master Liu and refine her teaching of Level 1 and Level 2 Zhineng Qigong.
In 2021, Reyna became a Certified New Point of Life Coach based on Master Liu’s personal philosophy in which he explores the principles and laws of living a conscious life to manifest the results of the soul’s intention. She became an End-of-Life Doula in 2018 certified by Deanna Cochran, Quality of Life Care, LLC, during which she was trained to care for the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of the terminally ill during the death process.
Born in Tijuana, Mexico, Reyna and her parents immigrated to the United States when she was three months old. Growing up, her parents instilled in her a strong work ethic, discipline, and a deep and lasting appreciation of her Mexican heritage. However, as she entered her youth, she felt a subtle but persistent emptiness. Deep within her there was a discontent that interfered with her innate joy and happiness, and something told her there was more. When she discovered Qigong, everything fell into place. This practice opened her both energetically and physically to new dimensions of herself! Nothing had the power to liberate and heal like this wisdom tradition of Chinese Medicine.
Reyna has now shared Zhineng Qigong in the US and Europe. She knows that her Spanish-speaking brothers and sisters could also benefit greatly from this work, and she plans to expand her offerings to include additional classes and programs taught in Spanish.
