YOQI TEACHER TRAINING PROGRAM
YOQI ONLINE TRAINING COURSE STARTING IN JANUARY 2019
The YOQI Training Program is an in-depth study into the practice of Qigong, Taoist Yoga, Pranayama, Buddhist and Taoist meditation. Included in the course are exercises, lectures and tools for self-healing, stress reduction, energy enhancement, emotional balance and spiritual insight. In one phrase, this program teaches you the theory and practice of energy medicine.
The YOQI Training Program is three core modules with an optional teacher training module for those who wish to become YOQI certified teachers. It is designed in a way that will create a space for you to experience the natural and effortless unfolding of your internal power, based on classic qigong forms and Traditional Chinese Medicine principles. The program follows the Six Energetic Phases of Qigong Flow, a method designed to train you how to effectively sense, feel, transform and work with qi (life force energy/prana) and teach others how to do the same. Through repetition of these six phases throughout each module, deeper layers of experiential and intellectual learning can be integrated with ease.
Each on-line module is 20 hours of instructional video learning + 30 hours of documented practice through guided video routines, audio meditations and suggested solitary self practice + 5 assigned reflection essays to total 50 hours. Each module can take up to one year to complete. Some people may finish as quickly as 3 months. Results come from consistent practice over time. The subscription time to the video training library is 1 year. The purpose of this is to help you focus your practice and complete the course. In special circumstances, and extension can be arranged.
In addition to the on-line course, 50 hours of YOQI Live Immersions/module are encouraged to be attended by everyone, and are mandatory for those who are enrolled to become a YOQI certified teacher. If you attend all 3 of the core YOQI Live Immersions and document practice hours, the on-line course is not required but is encouraged.
After full completion of each on-line module, the student will receive a ’50 Hour YOQI Yoga + Qigong Training Certificate’. 50 hours means that documented hours and reflection assignments are submitted and a 1-1 Session with a certified YOQI teacher has been completed either on-line or in person. After completing all 3 on-line modules (Module 1, Module 2, Module 3) a final '150 Hour YOQI Yoga + Qigong Training Certificate' will be given.
TEACHER TRAINING CERTIFICATION
Aspiring YOQI Instructors are required to complete 300 hours of training (Module 1, Module 2, Module 3) plus the 25 hours Live Teacher Training Immersion Course for a total of 325 hours of training. Each module consists of 100 hours of training that includes the 50 hour live 8-day immersion training course + 50 hours of home practice, including self practice, on-line video, audio meditations and reflection essay. The on-line video course program is an optional part of the teacher training curriculum, but is recommended and can be included in the home practice hours, which is a helpful tool to stay on track.
After completion of the live immersion and course work for each module, the teacher in training will receive a ‘100 Hour Certificate of Completion’. After completion of the live immersion and course work for all 3 modules and the 25 hour Teacher Training Course, the teacher in training will become a ‘ 325 Hour YOQI Certified Instructor’. A 500 hour advanced certification allows a YOQI teacher to teach others to become YOQI teachers, becoming a 'YOQI Certified Teacher Trainer'.
Note that both On-line and Live Immersion courses use the same manual and additional selected videos from the YOQI Video on Demand subscription library.
What is a reflection essay? Throughout each module you will be asked useful reflection questions that correspond to the coursework. This is not a research paper or serious thesis! A reflection essay is a way to reflect on your own experience and track the development of your practice. You can make them as creative, visual, academic, descriptive or simple as works for you!

FEEL YOUR QI STARTER KIT

Maximize your learning capacity! The Feel Your Qi starter kit combines both on-line learning with live immersion training. On-line training courses give you the ability to repeat and review material as many times as you need at your leisure in your own home. Live immersions are imperative for teacher to student transmission, corrections, postural adjustments and hands on experience. Learning in a group environment also creates a “qi field”. Combining these two modes of learning is an ideal way to start your qigong training.
