Hunyuan Taiji & Bagua Lessons
Matthew is now teaching group classes in Hunyuan Taijiquan, Xinyiquan and Baguazhang for serious students of Daoist internal cultivation who have made the commitment to practice daily. Beginning January 2024, Taiji Quan class will be held on Monday from 9:00 to 10:00 am and Bagua Zhang class will be held on Friday mornings from 9:00 to 10:00 am. If you’re interested in joining a committed class, please attend the Tuesday and/or Thursday morning Qigong class(es) for at least a month and then speak with Matthew privately about your aspiration.
For Prospective Students:
The Hunyuan Taiji Qigong System is a martial art, spiritual practice, and health cultivation discipline with deep roots in the Daoist tradition of China. The foundation of the taiji form is stillness, which is cultivated through qigong movements as well as standing and seated meditation. The Baguazhang Matt teaches is based in Cheng-style but has been influenced by the deep internal cultivation of the Hunyuan Taiji Qigong system.
Learning the internal arts is not a shallow endeavor, and requires lots of attentive practice. At this time, Matt only accepts dedicated taiji and bagua students who have made the commitment to practice daily.
Please peruse this site under the Martial Arts Classes tab for detailed explanation of class content. For more information about the curriculum call Matt at (541) 579-1153.
