Walking the Dao: Introduction to Bagua body Movement Part I
This class is open to everyone, no experience necessary
Baguazhang is an internal martial art system from China that applies Ying Yang philosophy to a martial body movement practice. It harnesses wisdom from Taoist and Buddhist principles dating back to the foundations of Shaolin Kung Fu. The Bagua system creates combat strategies within a circle and contains in the practice a deep philosophy of movement through the tendons and connective tissue.
The class will teach the principles of internal martial arts through standing postures and movement practice. Theoretical context for understanding the origins of the practice will also be incorporated during the training session.
Stacy Dawson Stearns curates this season of mojo training for Monday Morning Class at Pieter. These classes are offered with the intention of deepening and complicating the dance, movement, and artistic practices of the participants. Los Angeles takes things to a different level and dance is never just dance. Poetry is never just poetry. Pipes are never pipes. Induce your bodymind to go to the MOJO and get thee to class!
