Pa Gua Walking for Beginners  

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. The practice of circle walking, or “turning the circle” as it is sometimes called, is Baguazhang’s characteristic method of stance and movement training. Practitioners walk around the edge of the circle in various stances, facing the center, and periodically change direction as they execute forms.
