Baguazhang is an internal martial art from China that applies Ying Yang philosophy to a martial body movement system. It harnesses wisdom from Daoist and Buddhist principles dating back to the founder of Shaolin Kung Fu and Zen Buddhism. Bagua, as a high conscious level martial art practice, is also a powerful tool to combat physical and emotional ailments because it teaches how to fight with the spirit.
About Khoomei throat singing
Biphonic singing, part of Khoomei throat singing, is a buco-nasal technique in which simultaneous sounds are produced. It has been used in central Asia as a language that replicates different sounds and natural presences. It comes from shamanic and animist practices based on the knowledge that elements of nature, animals, and plants have spirit. n the west, this type of singing has been used as a therapeutic technique. It activates the functions of self-healing in the bio-psychic system and reestablishes internal balance and concentration.
