A REN XUE Africa Workshop

Introduction to Yuan Qigong

Join us in Umhlanga (Durban) for

a One Day Qigong Immersive in the first two methods

of the well-established, globally recognised and esteemed 

Qigong system, Yuan Qigong

Saturday 18 May 2024

We know there is great value in paying close attention to what we are able to effectively influence. The fact that our state is responsible for the quality of everything we think, say, and do and therefore activates a series of effects on the world around, is then clearly something worth becoming masterful at. Despite most of us believing that the world around us affects our state, it is in fact the other way around. It is unquestionably in our hands.

Qigong has been known for millennia to help people manage their state. In Yuan Gong specifically, we train ourselves in the practice to become more relaxed, calm, and natural while replenishing the quality and quantity of internal Qi. These states of relaxed, calm, and natural become more stable with sustained practice and begin to positively influence our life, whether our physical health (via a better regulated autonomic nervous system) or our emotional and mental wellbeing. The increase in high-quality internal Qi also adds profoundly to these three areas of Life. Yuan Gong further provides an opportunity to deepen the experience of one’s place in The Universe, offering a whole other dimension to one’s wellbeing.

We invite you to start your Yuan Gong journey with the first two methods: Tian Yuan and Di Yuan. Tian Yuan, a moving Qigong method, gathers primordial Yuan Qi of the Universe deeply into the body and is followed by the nourishing standing form Di Yuan, designed to strengthen and stabilise body and mind.

Please Read Through Our Cancellation Policy


It is our intention to accommodate the reality that things can change unexpectedly. However, there are costs associated with booking a venue and catering, plus administrative costs, which put us at risk should you cancel. Our policy, therefore, attempts to be fair to all involved:

If you need to cancel your workshop registration, please do so early.  Late cancellations may make it difficult for someone else to have the opportunity to attend.  Once you have paid any portion of the workshop fee, administrative and cancellation fees will apply, depending on the cancellation date.

If you cancel your booking:

  • 30 days before the workshop date, we will refund all fees paid minus an applicable administrative charge of R70. 
  • Less than 30 – 8days before the workshop, we will refund all fees paid minus R400 per person cancellation fee.
  • Less than 7 days before the workshop – no refund possible because catering would have been ordered, venue fee paid, and materials printed. The exception is for a qualified medical emergency.

Refunds will be paid within 30 days of receiving a written cancellation notice.


Anyone leaving the workshop early for anything other than a qualified emergency (medical emergency or a death in the family) will not receive any refund.
If someone leaves early due to a qualified emergency (medical emergency or a death in the family), we will refund 60% of the workshop fee. 

REN XUE Africa reserves the right at any time to require that a participant leave the workshop if a participant’s behavior is considered to be either excessively disruptive or dangerous to self or others.  In this case, all workshop fees are non-refundable.

I am really glad I signed up to do this course. Found it just in time.

The practice of yuan gong has a lovely structure and very simple to follow. Once I learned the movements, the flow is easy. I look forward to doing my practice and am already feeling lighter. My heart is filled with gratitude.

With much love and appreciation!


I have been drawn to qigong for a long time and had been looking for qigong classes without success for quite a while. As I googled it once more hopefully I was very excited to happen upon an upcoming qigong workshop in Craighall Park. I immediately made plans to enroll myself and looked forward to the day with much anticipation.

The workshop was everything I hoped for and much more. It introduced me to the ‘real thing’, the authentic qigong I was searching for. The workshop was a springboard to ongoing classes for me that adds so much value to my life. I have tremendous respect and appreciation for the knowledge, wisdom and support that Louise imparts with the workshops and classes.


Who is this for?

People new to Yuan Qigong who wish to have the opportunity to understand and learn the first & second methods and their underpinning principles.

What will I learn?

By the end of the workshop you will be able to practice the first two methods, Tian Yuan & Di Yuan, on your own. You would then be able to easily follow cued MP3 & MP4 recordings and/or join established classes.

Comprehensive notes will be provided.
