Bagua Circle Walking
I am excited to announce a weekend workshop coming up from local longtime teacher Mary Christianson. I have been taking Tai Chi classes from Mary for over a year now and heartily endorse her teaching style and content. Bagua is a great art and I look forward to beginning to learn it with you. Hope to see you there!
BAGUA ZHANG CIRCLE WALKING: THE ART OF CHANGE
January 4 & 5, 2020, 10:00 am - 5:00 pm. North Market, 4414 Humboldt Avenue North, Minneapolis. $175.
For hundreds of years Taoist monks walked the circle to be healthy and flexible enough for long hours of seated meditation. The martial art Bagua Zhang uses it as the primary practice for its spiraling, circular movements. Learn the techniques that transform simple walking into a powerful Taoist Internal Art for health, meditation, and martial arts. This dynamic and highly aerobic practice will make you strong and resilient. It will give you the ability to remain stable and relaxed while encountering and responding to change, first on the material plane, then mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. Circle walking is an excellent aerobic practice to do indoors during Minnesota winters, requiring only a small space.
