Bagua Daoyin
By

Rating
Bagua Daoyin emphasizes the perception and training of muscles (jin), bones (gu) and skin (pi), and combines elements of fitness, martial arts and medical science in order to promote harmony and balance in the body and mind. Master He, a fifth generation practitioner of the BaguaQuan line, sets out a programme of study underpinned by theory. He explains the development of Bagua Daoyin from a refinement of Daoist studies into a method of training the body and mind in which every external movement is echoed in the inner tissue of the body. Bagua Daoyin opens up the joints of the body and relaxes the muscles, encouraging an awareness of the body and posture at all times. With simple body movements, one can channel the hidden flow of Qi, or energy, and blood, giving a new lease of life to zones of the body that have lost their vitality and promoting a sense of tranquillity. This fully illustrated guide to Bagua Daoyin will be essential reading for Bagua and Tai Chi practitioners at all levels, students of martial arts and anyone interested in Chinese culture.

Fully illustrated introduction to Bagua Daoyin

About the Author

He Jinghan is a fifth generation practitioner of the BaguaQuan lineage. At the age of 15, he started studying Yang style TaijiQuan but after six or seven years came to a standstill and stopped improving. For several years he tried other styles of TaijiQuan, as well as XingyiQuan, ShaolinQuan and others but they were not his answers. When he was 23, he was introduced to Master Gong BaoZhai and began to specialize in Bagua. He became a disciple of Master Gong at the age of 24. For 23 years he studied this way until his teacher���s death. He Jinghan now focuses his attentions on the cultivation of the arts and the promotion of the BaguaDaoyin.
