A REN XUE Africa Workshop

Introduction to Yuan Gong 3rd Method – Ren Yuan

Northern Johanessburg

One Day Workshop teaching the 3rd method

of the well-established, globally recognised and esteemed 

Qigong system, Yuan Qigong

Saturday 22nd April 2023

REN XUE Africa Introductory Workshop to Ren Yuan


For those who have been waiting patiently, we shall be covering the Third Method within the Yuan Gong system, Ren Yuan, in this full-day Johannesburg workshop!

Ren Yuan is a ‘big’, flowing, moving form of Qigong that has an ancient internal method operating throughout. It is designed to unblock all the primary Qi channels in the body, down to the finest ones, drawing primordial Qi to strengthen all physical structures of the body. The muscles, ligaments, tendons, fascia, bones, cell walls, and intracellular structures are all included. At the levels of Mind, Heart, and spirit, Ren Yuan fosters and nourishes complete integration and unification of our ‘Ren’ or Human experience. 

In the ancient Chinese Wisdom teachings, the unification of Heaven, Earth, and Human is esteemed as a normal way of being. We surely would agree with this… 

And so, within Yuan Gong, The First Method, Tian Yuan, cultivates awareness of the natural law of relating to the ‘Heavenly’ realm, the Second Method, Di Yuan, cultivates awareness of the natural law of relating to the ‘Earth’ realm, and this Third Method, Ren Yuan, supports us in experiencing our unified ‘Humanness’ ~ the Internal and External are One. 

Please join us in learning this profound practice to uplift your Life.

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!


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.


As an introduction to a remarkably integrated healing system, the one day workshop was a winner.

Louise and her team were able to make all of us understand some very complex principles about Chi and Shen in a simple  and natural way. 

Coupled to this spiritual nourishment was some delicious vegan food, all dished up in a gloriously uplifting fynbos environment.
