Yuan Qigong, Dunedin and Beyond

The heart and mind know a more powerful truth than perhaps we are consciously aware.

It is a feeling beyond words. A feeling of interconnectedness, of deep trust, relaxation and freedom.

This is a precious and valuable way of being.

Yet if we are honest with ourselves, it is a part of ourselves that is often overlooked amidst the busyness and challenges of daily life.

Wouldn’t it be great then to have tools and a clearer understanding that would allow you to access and cultivate this state of being?

About Yuan Qigong

Over the last 15 years I have been very fortunate to have been learning and teaching a beautiful practice of moving meditations, known as Yuan Qigong.

Qigong, which works on breath, body, mind and Qi or Chi (life force energy), is a practice of moving and still meditations that are over 7000 years old. There are many different schools and philosophies of Qigong, and Yuan Qigong draws from these to create something that is both effective, yet easy to learn.

Benefits can be felt very early on and may include:

•Increased energy levels
•A deeper level of relaxation
•A calmer, clearer state of mind
•Reduced stress
•Reduced pain
•Greater emotional stability


‘Be calm, relaxed and natural

Pure Qi flowing with abundance and vigour

Where can illness come from?’

– Yellow emperor’s book of internal medicine.

Going deeper and applying Qigong principles in daily life.

REN XUE is the name of philosophy that Yuan Qigong is a part of. It draws on wisdom found in traditional teachings, such as Daoism, Buddhism, Traditional Chinese Medicine and Qigong.

Qigong practice is about cultivating a deeply calm, relaxed state of being during practice; REN XUE is about taking this special state into daily life as much as possible and, importantly, working on barriers that stop us from achieving this.

My Story

I started learning Qigong over 15 years ago.

Regular, daily Qigong practice and REN XUE has helped me in profound ways. Life is simpler, relationships are more harmonious and I am happier.

What I now understand is that body and mind are connected and it is of upmost importance to look after our energy levels, our vitality, or you could say Qi.

Based in Dunedin, I teach regular classes and workshops in Dunedin and beyond.
