Become a certified qigong instructor in paradise! Join Marisa Cranfill and the YOQI team for an eight-day immersion that will train you how to effectively sense, feel, transform and work with qi (life force energy/prana) and teach others how to do the same. Learn, practice, integrate and tap into your internal power while basking in the light of sand and sea.


Join Marisa Cranfill and the YOQI team for a life-changing 8-days in Ko Samui, Thailand. Learn how to connect to nature in nature. The YOQI Module 1 Training Program is an in-depth study into the practice of Qigong, Neigong, Taoist Pranayama and meditation based on the YOQI yoga + qigong system. Included in the course are exercises, theoretical lectures and tools for self-healing, stress reduction, energy enhancement, emotional balance and spiritual insight. The program uses the Seven 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. In one phrase, this program teaches you the theory and practice of Energy Medicine.

While the atmosphere is one of relaxation and nourishment, this is an accredited training program meant to cultivate discipline, will power and refine your skills to practice and teach qigong. Each day of the retreat will begin with an active morning YOQI Qigong Flow class followed by a silent meditation. Morning practice will focus on yoga + qigong purging exercises and dantian qigong. Lectures are accompanied by experiential learning techniques and the daily afternoon sessions are structured as workshops with interactive groups and adjustments. Mid-way through the week, we will take a half day off for integration, reflection and/or an island excursion of your choice.

The habitat, VIKASA, is a resort run exclusively for healing, wellness and spiritual cultivation. To support your training, an international buffet of healthy organic meals will be provided as well as an afternoon snack. In between sessions treat yourself to a massage with a VIKASA practitioner, enjoy social time with fellow students, relax at the swimming pool, or simply put your feet up and bask in the pure air of the sea. Selected evenings will have optional events such as dance, Six Healing Sounds guided practice, and other shared activities.

You will be provided with a YOQI Training manual, audio meditation CD and bean bag. In addition to training materials, it is highly recommended to follow the accompanying YOQI M1 On-Line Video Course as a preparation and follow up review to the live immersion. The On-Line Course is a valuable resource to ensure that you have access to all of the training information to review even after the 8 day immersion has ended.


Upon completion of the 50 Hour YOQI Immersion Training + 50 documented hours of home practice, the student will receive a 100 Hour YOQI Qigong Associate Instructor Certificate that certifies them to teach YOQI Qigong Fundamentals curriculum.

Marisa Cranfill

Marisa Cranfill is the founder of YOQI yoga+qigong. Frequent trips as a child inspired Marisa to study academically and work in Asia for over 15 years. While living in China and Thailand she received direct transmission from qigong masters, nuns and healers in both the Buddhist and Taoist traditions. Marisa is a certified 500 hour yoga instructor and a certified qigong instructor under two qigong lineages: Master Mantak Chia (Universal Healing Tao lineage) and Master Robert Peng (Dan Ming lineage). Marisa has been described as a generous and light-hearted teacher who guides her students through detailed theory, multi-cultural perspective and direct experience. A global citizen at heart, she speaks English, Spanish, Italian, Thai, Chinese and teaches around the world while offering free videos on the popular YOQI You Tube channel. She currently divides her time between homes in Bangkok, San Diego and Panama.

Pavel Bahushevich

Pavel Bahushevich started practicing qigong eighteen years ago. During this time he also studied meditation, yoga, sufi practices and modern techniques to work with energy. But spiritual practices were more like a hobby until he seriously injured his spine and wasn’t able to walk or sit for three months. After choosing not to go through with the operation that required fixing his spine with metal bars, he focused on qigong healing methods to heal himself. After successfully curing his spine through qigong he went on to become a certified Universal Healing Tao Instructor specializing in Iron Shirt, Tao Yin and Healing Love practices. He also has trained in medical qigong theory and form with Master Tan.
