Daoist Yoga: Alchemy of Baguazhang - Sun 22 Apr 2018

This workshop will cover preparatory sequences and circle-walking. The Daoist practice of Ba Gua is a physical manifestation of the ideas of the Trigrams (representations of the eight basic forces of the universe) that combine to make up the sixty-four hexagrams of the I Ching, the ancient Chinese oracle text.

The workshop will cover Alchemical sequences designed to improve the strength and structure of the body. We will do this through study of movement and stillness based around the central 'axis' of the body, the pole that connects Heaven (yang) and Earth (yin) through us. In this way we use the practice to balance the energies and forces within us by deepening the connection of mind and body. In circle-walking, the more dynamic aspect of the practice, our movements create a spiral-type vortex with powerfully transformative effects.

Tea will be provided.
