Louise Pannell Qigong Teacher Johannesburg

Louise Pannell

Having had a brief but potent first taste of a martial art form of Qigong in 2001, I instead settled into the daily practice of Kriya yoga and was a committed practitioner for 15 years.

Life knew better though and I only needed a brief taste of Qigong again in the form of Yuan Gong around 2014, to feel an instant resonance with the practice and Yuan Tze, its creator.

Little had I realised that Ren Xue Yuan Gong was so much more than just a traditional Qigong practice. It had the integrity, depth, and breadth which 30 years of studying different systems had not satisfied. Within two years of practicing Yuan Gong, I had been exposed to enough to know that teaching this comprehensive health and life upliftment system was a rare and significant gift I could offer to others.

The ability for Yuan Gong to empower people to heal themselves: body, mind, heart, or ‘spirit’ is vital at this time in the world and I bring my commitment and devotion to teaching this.

As a habitual knowledge-gatherer, my classes reflect the deeper Ren Xue Yuan Gong principles and theories to expand your Qigong experience.

I trust the ‘spirit’ of every one of my students to guide their journey with Great Wisdom; I simply offer the material in its purest form. With Love and Gratitude.

Please use the booking form on the front page to sign up for a class. There are various time slots available during the week. I look forward to welcoming you.

Louise is currently teaching two Beginner/Intermediate classes a week at the tranquil, well-established retreat centre Living Essence, nestled within the hear of Craighall Park. The peaceful, nurturing space for a maximum of 8 students at a time, ensures that each class of 75mins leaves you feeling refreshed, energised, and inspired to integrate your Yuan Qigong practice into everyday life.
