Qi Foundations Class

Learn how to improve your Qi condition to set a good foundation for life.

This six-week series introduces the basics of Qi management and provides a small taste of what Ren Xue is about. You will learn the first two methods of Yuan Gong (Tian Yuan and Di Yuan) in order to gather and nourish Qi.

Come prepared to move and relax into these graceful, flowing mind-body-Qi methods.

You will have a week between classes to practise and then bring your experiences and questions to the next class. This is a great way to embody these teachings.

Level: Beginners with no experience and people coming from another Qigong system

Please let me know if you have a health condition that may require modification of the physical movements.

*Please also see “Workshops” page for one-day Qi Foundations

Creating Consciousness

Are you holding back your progress in life but you “just can’t” change?

These classes offer a way to explore your consciousness in a safe and playful way. We will combine creativity and Yuan Gong’s Ling Yuan method to find the root patterns at the heart of your problems. This interactive class offers a path to change by gradually replacing the old patterns with healthier, more life-enhancing ones.

What parents around the globe have to say about Yuan Gong in their lives:

“Children {are}amazing teachers and mirrors to how we personally are dealing with life.  By transforming our own fears, worries, stress we really help our own children to do the same.”

“I enjoy parenting a whole lot more”
“I have more fun with my kids”
“I love and appreciate my kids more”
“I feel more connected with my kids and this just keeps deepening”

“Since I am more honest with my feelings when a situation arises, my children tend to do the same and that is very enjoyable for everyone… we are on a path together of being more and more authentic, so we do feel a sense of fullness growing up together as a team, with no one pretending much anymore…”

“Understanding Yuan Gong prior to making babies and during pregnancy brings a whole new level to connection with self, your baby and nature.”

“Having fun by doing the simple things in life together, like being out in nature or preparing food – Yuan Gong brings life back into a simpler, more harmonious state; one with which most kids resonate.”
