YOQI TEACHER TRAINING PROGRAM
YOQI ONLINE TRAINING COURSE IS LIVE!
The YOQI Training Program is an in-depth study into the practice of Qigong, Neidan, 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.

During the live immersion you will have the opportunity to teach in groups daily with the guidance of YOQI Senior Instructors. Upon completion of the 8-day Live Immersion Training and completion of the reflection questions/ documented home practice hours you will receive a ‘YOQI Qigong Associate Instructor Certificate’ that certifies you to teach YOQI Qigong Flow curriculum and join the international instructor search page on the YOQI website.
*We highly recommend using the M1 Online Course as a supplement and tool for learning. Once you complete both the a live training immersion and the Online Course you become a YOQI QIgong Flow Certified Instructor.
YOQI QIGONG FLOW - CERTIFIED INSTRUCTOR (200 HOURS)
To become a YOQI Qigong Flow Certified Instructor one must complete the Module 1 Qigong Fundamentals Online Course and participate in the Module 1, 8-day Live Immersion training. Included in the course material are mandatory reflection questions, exercises and one home video presentation. During the live immersion you will have the opportunity to teach in groups daily with the guidance of YOQI Senior Instructors. Becoming a Certified Instructor is the first step towards full YOQI Instructor certification of all 3 modules and gives you the opportunity to teach qigong with Marisa, teach YOQI at Yoga Studios and establishments, use the YOQI logo on your materials and post your title on international instructor search page on the YOQI website.
ONLINE TRAINING PROGRAM (50+ HOURS)
Each on-line module includes 50+ hours of instructional video learning through guided video routines, audio meditations and suggested solitary self practice, reflection questions and exercises. 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. While the Online Course is an in depth qigong program, it does not certify one to teach YOQI Qigong. To become an Associate Instructor or Certified Instructor you must attend a live immersion for in person testing.
After full completion of the M1 Online Coursework is submitted, the student will receive a ’‘50 Hour Certificate of Online Participation’’. After completing all 3 On-line modules (Module 1, Module 2, Module 3 + 50 home practice hours) a final '200 Hour Certificate of Online Participation ' will be given. 200 hours means that documented practice 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. This does not certify you to teach, but after attending 1 live immersion you can become a YOQI Qigong Flow Certified Instructor. Some people will start only on line and then do the live course. Others will do a live immersion then the Online course. It is up to you.
CERTIFIED yoqi INSTRUCTOR (500 hours)
Aspiring YOQI Instructors are required to complete 3 Live Immersions & 3 Online Modules (Module 1, Module 2, Module 3) plus the Live Teacher Training Immersion Course for a total of 500 hours of training. Each module includes the 50 hour live 8-day immersion training course + Online Coursework, home practice, including self practice, and reflection essay. The on-line video course program is a mandatory part of the teacher training curriculum. Exceptions to this are those who are already certified Qigong Instructors through the Universal Healing Tao or Master Peng system of Qigong.
Note that both On-line and Live Immersion courses use the same manual in different formats and additional selected videos from the YOQI Video on Demand subscription library.
What is a reflection questions? Throughout each module you will be asked useful reflection questions that correspond to the coursework. This is not a research paper or serious thesis! Reflection questions are a way to integrate the learning, 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! Included in the reflection questions is an exercise to design your own Qigong Flow Classes. Often students use the classes they have designed when they start teaching others.
