Pa Gua Walking for Intermediates  

This is a continuation of the “Pa Gua Walking for Beginners” course. Pa Gua Chang is an internal Chinese martial art that is extremely beneficial for older adults. The Chinese consider root to be the foundation of your body. They exercise their root-legs with Pa Gua Circle walking. In the beginner class, we concentrated on walking with fixed arm gestures. For the intermediate class, we will have more arm movements while doing the walking in order to exercise both the upper body and lower body at the same time. We will do the Single Palm change. If we have more time, we will also teach the Double Palm change.
