what is bagua?

Bagua Circle Walking is a powerful energy movement practice that combines circular moves, firm stepping, and focused intent. Similar to Tai Chi, Bagua produces many of the same benefits for health, healing, and longevity. Bagua will also activate all the energy pathways and points. The basic Bagua forms tend to be easier to learn relative to Tai Chi because there is far less choreography to memorize, yielding a faster way to energy experiences.

“Practicing Tai Chi may help to improve balance and stability in older people and in those with Parkinson’s disease, reduce back pain and pain from knee osteoarthritis, and improve quality of life in people with heart disease, cancer, and other chronic illnesses. Tai Chi and Qi gong may ease fibromyalgia pain and promote general quality of life. Qi gong may reduce chronic neck pain, but study results are mixed. Tai Chi also may improve reasoning ability in older people.”

“Tai Chi is better than brisk walking in reducing several cardiovascular disease risk factors and improving psychosocial well-being, and can be recommended as a viable exercise for building a healthy life free of cardiovascular disease.”
