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.


Yunuen Rhi is a martial artist and healer has roots in Mexico, United States and Korea. She started training Baguazhang and healing arts in Beijing, China in 2008 and was initiated into the 6th generation of the lineage by her Master, Liu Xuyang in 2010. Since last year she has also been under intensive training with Li Baohua holder of the 4th generation Magui Bagua lineage in Japan and is in continuous study of her practice. Her studies in anthropology and exploration in performance art inform the pedagogy of her practice. She shares her practice with artists, activist and the community at large since 2012 through workshops across Europe, Mexico and the United States.
