🐉MOVE LIKE A DRAGON - DAOIST WALKING MEDITATION - BAGUA NEIGONG🐉

Ba Gua is the ultimate Nei Gong exercise because it is the culmination of a tradition of Dao Yin (guiding, pulling and leading qi exercises), Tu Na (breathing exercises), Nei Gong (internal Exercises), Martial arts, Daoist meditation and Daoist alchemical practices, and other Yang Sheng (Life Nourishing) practices that date back at least as far as the early Han dynasty.

Ba Gua Master Li Zi Ming summarized the importance of walking and in particular Ba Gua Circle Walking Nei Gong by simply saying:

Hundreds of exercises are not as good as simply walking;
Walking is the master of hundreds of exercises.
