Join us for the 100hr Qi Gong, Chinese Meridians & Yin Yoga Teacher Training in Sayulita, Mexico! This training is an integrated teaching course that infuses the ancient art of Qi Gong and Yin yoga practice. Qi Gong has become increasingly popular in the West. It has tremendous benefits including lowering stress and anxiety, preventing cardiovascular diseases, increasing mental focus, and the list goes on. Qi Gong is one of the primary branches of Traditional Chinese Medicine. It has been a healing tool for patients in China for many decades.
What is Qi?
Qi (or pronounced as "Chee") refers to the life force or vitality of life that flows through the whole universe. Gong (or Kung) means skill cultivated through steady practices. People of all ages and abilities are welcome to practice Qi Gong. Many people choose to do Qi Gong to maintain their health, calm the mind, heal the body, and reconnect with their spirit.
Yin yoga compliments Qi Gong seamlessly as both have their roots in the Daoism. Yin yoga, on its own, has tremendous benefits in reducing stress, increasing flexibility, sharpening mental focus, and decreasing insomnia. When practicing both Yin yoga and Qi Gong, you'll increase your sensitivty to subtle energies, and heighten your senses within. It is the goal of a yogi to get in touch with his or her subtle energies and eventually reaches the state of Self-Realization.
This training is led by Dr. Tyler Cole, who has attained his doctorate in Medical Qi Gong. Dr. Cole has a vast amount of knowledge in Traditional Chinese Medicine and Daoist philosophy.

Lead trainer, Doctorate in Medical Qigong
Tyler has 30 years of experience in practicing and teaching Chinese Kung Fu. He holds a doctorate degree in Traditional Chinese Medicine specialized in Medical Qi Gong.
Tyler's journey into the Eastern healing and martial arts began in 1984 with Yang style Tai Chi Chuan. Six months later, Tyler began his studies in Tai Chi and Northern Shaolin with Sifu (master) Jerry Alan Johnson at the Ching Lung school. In 1986, Tyler earned his black sash "student level". Continuing his studies with Master Johnson, he turned toward Shing Yi Chaun, and Bagua Zhang in 1990. Gradually Tyler became interested and immersed fully in the study of the Three Treasures: Tai Chi, Shing Yi, and Bagua.
Throughout Tyler's training, there was an underlying rule that " If you break it, you fix it". Stemming from this rule, Tyler began to learn about traumatology and herbology as part of his training curriculum. He came to realized that the best martial artists were doctors and the best doctors were actually martial artists. With this in mind, Tyler enrolled and began his formal study of Medical Qigong also known as Qi emission therapy in 1998. In 2007, Tyler entered into Taoist Mystic studies and by 2009 became the 81st generation disciple and Daoist priest of Mao Shan (Shang Qing) Daoism. In 2011, Tyler was ordained as the 66th generation disciple and priest of Long Hu Shan (Tian Shi) Daoism. In 2012, Tyler finished his studies with Master Johnson at The Temple of the Celestial Cloud in Monterey California.
Tyler currently lives in Monterey California with his wife Elise and baby Lily.
