What is Infinite Chi Yoga?
‘Two Great Ancient Arts Merge Into One’
Infinite Chi Yoga™ is a unique path to spiritual awakening, created by Master Jason Chan. It is based on a dynamic fusion of Chi Kung and Yoga philosophies, techniques and practices. Infinite Chi Yoga™ thus combines thousands of years of treasures from these two complimentary paths to personal radiance and spiritual wisdom. Through a new synthesis of Chi Kung and Yoga, Jason Chan aims to bring greater richness, depth and beauty to these two life-transforming arts.
Yoga and Chi Kung truly enhance each other when practised together. Each art is very deep and rich, and practising either in a systematic way will change you in ways you cannot begin to imagine. Synthesising both arts will speed up your personal and spiritual growth as you begin to master your body, your breath and your mind and prepare yourself to receive the divine grace that is your natural birthright.
In time, the practice of Infinite Chi Yoga™ will bring flexibility, suppleness and nourishment to the joints and muscles whilst massaging the vital organs and glands with life-enriching Chi. Respiration and circulation will also be improved, thus ensuring a rich supply of nutrients (oxygen, chi , prana) to all the cells in the body.
The advanced practitioner of Infinite chi Yoga™ will ultimately discover the Truth of Life itself that is always available to us here and now. Once they have tasted this Truth, advanced practitioners will know that henceforth their only purpose in life is to serve others with all their heart, mind and spirit.
Infinite Chi Kung
‘To harness the power of the universe’. Infinite Chi Kung comes from the Tao.
‘Tao can be expressed but not the eternal Tao. Names can be named, but not the eternal name. As the origin of heaven and earth the Tao is nameless, but as the Mother of all things, it is nameable’ (Lao Tzu)
‘Like the Tao, Chi cannot be described. It can only be experienced. Universal Chi is inexhaustible. The more you cultivate Chi the more you will be able to hold it. The more you can hold it, the more you will be able to extend it out to others. The more you extend chi outwards to support the others the more you too will receive its great benefits’ (Jason Chan)
A simple translation of Chi Kung is energy work. Chi means breath, air, energy, vitality Kung means work and is used to refer to any technique or skill that requires time, effort, aspiration and constant practice to perfect or accomplish one’s art.
When a Chi Kung practitioner has reached a level of great quality and refinement of their art, the Chinese will say that they have achieved great depth and strength of their ‘Kung’.
When the power of chi is combined with virtue this is an expression of the ‘Tao’.
Through balancing and harmonising the power and wisdom of heavenly cosmic forces, combined with earth’s nature forces and human forces, we can enjoy radiant health and vitality, attain physical strength and longevity, enhance our mental awareness and spiritual insight and eventually overcome our fear of life and death. The ultimate goal of Chi Kung practice is to realise the primordial immortality of our Human Spirit.
A perfect description of the presence of a truly accomplished Chi Kung practitioner is: ‘Be still like a mountain. Flow like a great river’ (Lao Tzu)
When practising Chi Kung it is essential that every movement and all stillness is guided by Spirit or ‘clear consciousness’. In Chi Kung there is stillness in each movement and movement in stillness.
Yoga: A Royal Path towards Enlightenment
The word yoga literally means ‘to yoke, bind or join’. Yoga can also mean union or fusion. The ultimate aim of yoga is to merge with the ‘One’ The path of yoga is the path of self-mastery.
The Self to be realised beyond the ego is ‘Atman’ or pure consciousness. Through disciplined yoga practice, the adept will eventually discover this intuitive enlightened state. In yogic terms this is known as ‘Samadhi’
As a mirror once tarnished by dust shines brightly again once it has been polished, so the accomplished yogi becomes free from grief and fear after once tasting the true nature of the Self.
Patanjali indicated that there are two ways to transcend the ‘waves’ of the mind: practice and non-attachment.
He defined practice as ‘effort or vigilance toward steadiness of mind.’ When this practice is ‘well attended to’ with all earnestness for a long time and without a break it will become effective and ultimately effortless.
Patanjali sets out the eight limbs of yoga or the eightfold path.
a) Ahimsa – non violence – or living without harming others by thought, word or deed
b) Satya – truthfulness
c) Asteya – non-stealing
d) Aparigraha – abstaining from greed
e) Brahmacharya – celibacy – to walk with God / higher consciousness
2 Niyama – Observance
a) Sauca – purity / cleanliness of mind and body
b) Samtosa – contentment – facing reality without reacting with strong emotions c) Tapas – austerity or self-control – to burn
d) Svadhyaya – continuous learning / studying spiritual books
e) Ishvara pranidhana surrendering to higher intelligence / devotion to God
3 Asana – the practice of postures
4 Pranayama – balanced breathing / restraint (or control) of life forces
5 Pratyahara – withdrawal of the mind from external objects and distractions
6 Dharana – pure concentration or fixed attention
7 Dhyana – Meditation or contemplation
8 Samadhi – the transcendental state of bliss, super- consciousness, Self-realisation
Infinite Chi Yoga™ is simple, direct and faithful to Patanjali’s Eight Limb Path.
Infinite Chi Yoga™ has been created to embrace the essence of Yoga in its purest form.

Teaching is demonstrating. We are all demonstrating something to ourselves and the world each time we do anything.

As we become more aware of our own higher potential and purpose, so we will demonstrate and teach differently.
Two Approaches to this course
There are two ways to approach this course. First, you may be inspired to become an Infinite Chi Yoga teacher. To train to be a teacher requires your inspiration, dedication and unwavering commitment. This commitment to training, practising daily and working ceaselessly on your own personal growth should not be taken lightly. Taking the teacher training path involves certain levels of attendance and achievement that are outlined below.
Although this curriculum outlines a three-year course, some students who are inspired to become Infinite Chi Yoga teachers may take longer to graduate. Some students reach the standard required of teachers in just three years. Others may take up to five years. It all depends upon an individual’s enfoldment.
The second approach to the course is to take it for the purpose of self-development. Many students take this course not to become Infinite Chi Yoga teachers but simply to enhance their own health and spiritual growth. This in itself will benefit and enhance the lives of others. It is possible, having started the course for personal development reasons only, to change to commit to becoming an Infinite Chi Yoga teacher if that is your new inspiration. This change of approach is subject to certain requirements that are set out below. It is also subject to you reaching certain levels of ability.
When commencing this course you will need to make clear to the Infinite Ats which approach you are taking. Course teachers will be available to discuss your options with you either before or during the course. We will always endeavour to give you our support. We are here to serve your best interests throughout your years of training with us.
Course Teacher reserves the right to ask a student to leave the course at any point if he decides that such a decision is in the best interests of the student concerned and/or the other students on the course.
