David Silver is a certified Qigong instructor offering private and group Qigong and Taijiquan classes on Cape Cod, MA. He works as a writer, producer, and director of instructional martial arts and health videos, and is the co-author of several books and videos.
David Silver has studied continuously since 2000 to become a certified Y.M.A.A. Qigong Instructor, under Master Yang, Jwing-Ming. YMAA (Yang’s Martial Arts Association) is the world’s leading Chinese martial arts organization, with over 50 schools in 18 countries.
Dr. Yang’s background as a physics professor and Ph.D in mechanical engineering and his Western scientific perspective in his qigong theory teaching appeals to me. I’m interested in a modern understanding of the human energetic circulatory system, with supporting data from current research in the field. I am an editor of Dr. Yang’s articles and more recently his book Qigong Meditation: Small Circulation. In 2007, I co-authored a book with a colleague who works in Boston using the techniques we practice in class to help improve the quality of life of people with arthritis, fibromyalgia, and cancer.
I work as a writer/producer/director of instructional martial arts and health DVDs and I volunteer as project manager of the 10-year training program at the nonprofit YMAA Retreat Center, located in Humbolt County, Northern CA.
