Ba Gua Zhang in Provence

New York based instructors Tom Bisio and Valerie Ghent were assisted by IAI instructor Pascal Jauffret.  The class focused on Ba Gua Ji Ben Gong (28 Foundational Exercises) and introduced various methods of Circle Walking Nei Gong (Ding Shi Ba Gua Zhang). Students also practiced Zhan Zhuang and the six Qi Cultivation exercises.

The next Ba Gua seminar in Le Beausset is already scheduled and will take place in October, 2015. It will include a review of the 28 Foundational Exercises and Circle Walking Nei Gong. New material will include the 12 Standing Postures of Ba Gua Zhang, a detailed study of Ba Gua stepping exercises and more advanced training in Circle Walking Nei Gong.

Tian Gan Heavenly Stem Nei Gong Class In NYC – March/April 2015

Tiangan.Circle

Tian Gan Nei Gong New Class Begins March 4, 2015

Tian Gan Nei Gong is a profound set of sixteen exercises that improve circulation, energize the body and develop refined strength and power. A rare opportunity to learn this unique and powerful Nei Gong method.

These traditional exercises are used by Ba Gua and Xing Yi practitioners to develop torsional power that is connected directly to the spine and legs, forming the basis of the so-called “silk reeling energy.” For this reason Tian Gan exercises can also be useful to practitioners of other martial arts such as Jiu-jitsu, Aikido and Filipino styles, and can help enthusiasts of sports like tennis and golf, which similarly rely on circular, spiral forces.

The Tian Gan Exercises also function as a powerful health preservation practice, because they literally “wring out” the spine, freeing up restrictions and blockages in the spine and its energetic connections to the internal organs and brain.

Ba Gua Nei Gong Vol. 1 by Tom Bisio

Ba Gua Nei Gong Volume 1: Yin Yang Patting & Dao Yin Exercises

Yin Yang Patting Nei Gong is often the starting point for learning Ba Gua Zhang and for the practice of Nei Gong and other Yang Sheng (Nourishing Life) Exercises. The primary function of the Patting Nei Gong is to begin to open the meridians by patting and slapping along their trajectories. Unblocking, opening and coursing the meridians in this manner is an important precursor to advanced energetic practices.

Dao Yin Nei Gong is often performed in conjunction with the Patting Nei Gong because the two practices have different, yet complimentary actions. While Patting Nei Gong focuses on dispersing energy blockages and their accompanying muscular tension, Dao Yin Nei Gong emphasizes regulating the internal energetics of the body. The Dao Yin exercises directly regulate the Qi Dynamic, stimulate one’s natural healing powers and help prevent disease from taking root. This in turn promotes health and proper functioning of the body.

Daoist Meditation Lesson Six Theory: Dissolving & Clearing Blockages

Image for Daoist Meditation Lesson Six Theory: Dissolving & Clearing Blockages

Lesson Six of Nine Lessons on Daoist Meditation: Dissolving and Clearing Blockages.

In the last lesson we learned that the Qi/Breath does not flow easily through tight, tense muscles and joints. Similarly in Lesson Three: Counting the Breaths, we saw how thoughts and emotions can interfere with the harmonious movement of the Qi/Breath, causing it to move erratically, to dissipate, or even block.

Lesson Six builds on the previous one, by working more directly with dissolving and clearing blockages that interfere with the movement of the Qi/Breath. Read More…
