INTERNAL MARTIAL ARTS


Introduction to Ba Gua class with Ellen Shankin
Fridays, 8:30-9:30 am   «»  Class fee: $35/month or $12 per drop-in (first class is free)
Open to everyone, no previous experience required.

Intro to Ba Gua is a continuing class with open enrollment.  Anyone can join the class at any time and be brought along to learn the full range of the form we train. In this class we learn a fundamental practice called Ding Shyr .  It is a meditative slow circular walking form that cultivates and circulates energy, encourages good alignment , improves balance and has a elevating effect on mood and well being.
After thorough warm ups, which encourage rotating and stretching all parts if the body,  we spend the remainder  of the hour learning to walk Ding Shyr.  While there are 8 hand positions in the form , those new to the class can easily follow along limiting themselves to 1 of the positions and gaining much benefit until more aspects of the form are learned.  Come join us for the hour!
