Gathering Qi from the Sides, Tian Yuan

Life seemed to encourage me from very young to step forward into fields that helped others be healthier and happier. Sometimes these fields were not yet well known or accepted, but over time they proved themselves. I trust completely that Ren Xue and Yuan Gong will be no different!

It seemed accidental that I started my education with a BSc in life sciences:  Zoology and Microbiology, but it turned out to have been no mistake. That foundation was followed with diplomas and certificates in nutrition and movement, leading to 14 intensive years teaching BASI Pilates. During that same period I was blessed to be part of one of the best Neuro-Linguistic Programming schools in South Africa and did in-depth studies in NLP.  This overall life trajectory, combined with ever deepening self enquiry through spiritual disicplines, including a yogic technology, brought me to a fortuitous place: a colleague and Ren Xue teacher taught me Yuan Gong in 2013!

I practised this exclusively every day, because it simply felt so natural, nourishing and uplifting ~ through some very difficult years. When I was exposed to the deeper principles and theories of Ren Xue, enormous chunks of the puzzle of Life came together for me in an inspiring way. This would not have been possible without the simple but comprehensive wisdom teachings of Yuan Tze's Ren Xue.

Good fortune allowed me to travel from South Africa to New Zealand in 2017 and 2018 to study in the presence of Yuan Tze and in early 2019 I began offering daily group Yuan Gong classes in Johannesburg. During early 2020, the Covid-19 pandemic, moved our classes online.

My Ren Xue studies meanwhile have continued at international online Teachers' Retreats regularly and the daily practice is an ever increasing backdrop to my Life.

I am committed to continue progressing through and refining my knowledge of Ren Xue, while integrating my understandings better, for the benefit of those I am blessed to teach.

It would be my pleasure to have you join our current online group classes, where recordings are made available for a week, within 24 hours, to enable you to practice every day, affordably and at your own convenience.

Please go to our website: renxueafrica.org to the Bookings page and follow the process to book a one hour Zoom class.

You will receive a confirmatory email with your Zoom link for the class you booked and by simply clicking on that 10 mins before the start time, you will be admitted to the meeting room to participate.

Create a quiet, undisturbed space for yourself, with a comfortable place to sit (either on the floor or on a straight backed chair where your feet can rest flat on the floor with your shins vertical, without any awkwardness). Have enough space to also stand up and move your arms freely in all directions. Ideally, we practice without shoes, so keep your feet warm with socks or on a warm, soft surface, even maybe outdoors in the warmer months! You will be guided through the actual physical form in the class, as well as receive weekly layered learning about the theories and principles, essential to deepen your practice.

Followup questions and feedback happen via email (louise.pannell@gmail.com) after class, to preserve a relatively undisturbed recording of the class for your week ahead, daily practice.
