Case Study - Misa Tsuyoshi, Spring Forest Qigong Certified Professional


We would like to introduce you to one of Spring Forest Qigong’s Certified Professionals - Misa. Misa lives in a small city in the suburbs of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. She came to Spring Forest Qigong as a Tai Chi instructor, but it was a significant health challenge which brought her to Spring Forest Qigong to learn how qigong could help her in her own healing journey. Her personal experience recovering from a major illness and surgery helped her realize this simple fact - when both the physical and mental energy are balanced, self-healing and recovery takes place faster and more completely. She saw first-hand how the simplest movements have such great power in healing.

Misa began her Spring Forest Qigong career in May 2017, becoming one of the very first Certified Trainers through Spring Forest Qigong’s new school – Energy Healing International. It took Misa a little time to step out of her comfort zone and into her confidence of being a Spring Forest Qigong teacher but once she taught that first class in Milwaukee, in February 2018, she taught five (5) Spring Forest Qigong for Health classes (Level 1). Within her first year of teaching, with a total of 43 happy students leaving her classes with the knowledge that they “are born a healer”. Since she started teaching, Misa realized that her job is to make it easy for each person to find and strengthen his or her uniqueness by helping both the body and mind energy to be balanced and nurtured. This way, she believes, everyone will experience one’s optimal health and happiness.

Not only did Misa help her students learn how to help heal themselves, which is invaluable in and of itself, she also generated the needed financial support to continue her work. This is how it worked for her: She determined a location, the date and the price for her class. When she submitted that information to Spring Forest Qigong (SFQ), SFQ marketed her class by creating a webpage on the SFQ website, sent out direct emails to SFQ’s email list, reaching thousands of people that would not have been possible for Misa to reach on her own. Her class was also promoted in SFQ’s Qi-Full Living monthly newsletter. SFQ also took care of student registrations and payments so that Misa could focus on preparing herself to be the best teacher possible for her students by accessing and studying all the teaching materials in the Toolbox for Success that is provided to every Spring Forest Qigong Teaching Professional. Her very first class had 16 students and $2,384.00 in gross revenue. After paying her 20% royalty fee to SFQ, venue rental and miscellaneous costs for holding her class, her income was more than enough to cover the training cost of $799.00 and lodging/commuting she spent to attend the Certified Trainer training. Once Misa completed her class, SFQ sent her a check and she them had money in the bank to grow her business!

Misa saw the impact on her Level 1 students and wanted to do more for her students and the communities she serves. Her teaching has brought her to greater understanding of herself and her life and soul purpose. She continued to learn and grow by practicing, taking classes, and teaching. In less than two years, she went on to become a Spring Forest Qigong Certified Healer and the highest level of certification – a Spring Forest Qigong Certified Instructor. Since she continues to invest in herself with higher certifications, she can now teach other advanced Spring Forest Qigong trainings (Level 2 and Level 3). By stepping out and working in partnership with Spring Forest Qigong to market her classes and enroll new students, Misa has personally trained 62 students in her Level 1 classes in her first 2 ½ years as an SFQ Certified Professional. By working in partnership with Spring Forest Qigong, she was able to generate income and invest into her advanced certification training.

As a Certified Qigong Instructor, Misa became a part of the SFQ extended leadership team, creating an impactful business in her community, nurturing and training new SFQ teachers and healers, and sharing the power of Spring Forest Qigong as a community leader forwarding Master Lin’s vision of “teachers teaching teachers...”. She was awarded the Trainer of the Year recognition from Spring Forest Qigong in 2018 for her dedication to spread the word that everyone is born a healer. From the growing number of students she has taught, Misa is also able to naturally develop a strong client-base for a robust Qigong healing business.



Certified Qigong Instructor Misa Tsuyoshi The Certified Trainer training taught me not only how to teach, provided the wisdom from the masters but gave the experience of how it FEELS to teach others--- then it became confidence. Learning the business portion and having the tools to keep the quality of what I do have been helping me to walk toward a successful SFQ professional. To this day and beyond I am and will be grateful for being guided by the masters/faculty members as well as meeting other trainers. I also remember the CEO Debra Lin said, "You are my babies."---I felt the love. And her words are true since I have been supported and nurtured, always.
