Nick Headshot.jpg


Nick Loffree has been interested in health and fitness since he was 12 when he began to explore strength training and sports conditioning with his Mom, who was making a career change into fitness coaching. A few sharp turns later (involving drug use and head traumas), at 17, Nick wound up hospitalized and medicated for paranoid psychosis. Two years of medication left him a mess of chronic health conditions, including cystic acne, boils, eczema, depression, irritable bowel syndrome, anxiety, and brain fog.


Not being one to take "impossible" for an answer, Nick ignored the cynicism of his doctors and psychiatrists and forged a path back to health for himself. He explored different paths of Yogic, Buddhist, Christian, and Taoist practices, Ayurvedic medicine, Chinese Medicine, the Paleo Diet, Vegan Diet, Keto Diet, Juice Cleanses, the Ray Peat diet, water fasts, coffee enemas, clay therapies, antibiotics, conventional medicines, and countless forms of "Biohacks". Most things led to a mix of benefits and side effects, but gradually, with many ups and downs, Nick found the principles and paths that led back to health and vitality.

The healing resource Nick found most useful on this path was Qigong. So, in 2014, he moved from Toronto to California to spend 3.5 years apprenticing with world famous Qigong master and Chinese Medicine practitioner Lee Holden.


After his internship, Nick stuck around in California and made a name for himself as a Qigong and Taoist Yoga teacher across Silicon Valley. 


There, Nick spent 4 years as an on-site movement teacher at 1440 Multiversity, the mindfulness retreat center of companies like Google and Apple. He taught Qigong as PTSD therapy to police, firefighters, and military through the non-profit Resiliency First. He helped teenagers with drug addiction and mental health issues at Evolve Treatment's outpatient mental hospitals. He taught everywhere from Yoga studios, to cancer patient retreats, to sports team training facilities, to kids summer camps, to nursing homes and retirement communities.


During those 4 years Nick found ways to make mindful movement and self healing accessible to a wide variety of populations.


He now applies those lessons to his online teaching, where he reaches out through Youtube, TikTok, E-courses, coaching, and teacher certifications to spread the power of mind/body medicine far and wide.

Nick lives part time in Japan, part time in the USA, and part time around the world, with his wife Charity and daughter Meadow Mei.
