What's new in UHT

Following the on-line class 9th –26th  January 2021 'Instructor Training', we will be organising  Instructor Evaluation class in July with Senior Level 2 Instructor Luc Leyton, on Zoom.  You can apply to certify as Associate or Certified Instructors..

To ensure high standards and easy access, UHT has adapted instructor training, evaluation and certifying procedures to meet the demands of our new global situation. 

Tao Garden Retreat Centre is closed for the foreseeable future, so no more 1-month Retreat intensive training, as in our past Winter Retreat. The Winter Retreat is on-line  January, February & March  2021 with Master Chia, supported by a team of Senior Instructors doing after-class classes.  Master Chia has cancelled his world teaching tours for the next two years, but he will be continuing his teaching on-line.

From now on


  • Step 1:  Become an Associate UHT Instructor and

  • Step 2:  Having taught for a minimum of 6 months, you can go on to take the Certified UHT Instructor training (instead of the one-month Winter Retreat).


UHT Associate Instructors who achieved their level pre-Covid (March 2020 when Master Chia had to cancel his world tour seminars) can become UHT Certified Instructors by updating their knowledge with the online Instructor Training in October and then doing a 3-day evaluation class with a UHT Senior 2 (a new grade of instructor who can now evaluate and award Certified Instructor and Associate Instructor status).

They will be tested in Micro-Cosmic Orbit, 3 Tan Tien Fires & 6 Direction Chi Kung, Passing Energy.

you can download the Case Study form to upgrade from Associate to Certified Instructor and the 'Education Path' is explained.
