I am grateful and happy to announce that I have found a wonderful new location for our Bagua Zhang classes! Starting tomorrow morning, Saturday, October 1st, I will be offering class at beautiful Wilcox Park in Lynnwood.
This park will be much easier to get to for those of you a little further North of Seattle, and there are many bonuses to our practicing Bagua at this lovely park.
- First, there is plenty of off street parking, with two separate parking lots–one in front and one in back!
- Second, there are proper, easily accessible bathroom and drinking fountain facilities.
- Third, there are two covered shelters for practice in case of inclement weather–one smaller band shelter that could be a small space for a one-on-one lesson, as well as a larger, covered picnic shelter a little higher up the same hill.
- Fourth, this park is located very near my new home, and my fiance, Ana Maria and I have decided that the most practical solution to an indoor class space during cold weather should be our living room, which we intend to set up as a convenient Bagua practice space, as well as one conducive to meditation and yoga.
In addition to all of these positive aspects of our new practice location, my favorite things about Wilcox Park are it’s gorgeous wooded areas, with sizable, mature trees, and that there several places within the park where we can actually practice with more serenity and privacy. Not only do the trees provide excellent shade cover for many parts of the park, but I found a few specific, really awesome spots within the canopy of trees, which are large enough to accommodate a decent sized class. These areas feel to me like a natural, open air temple, and the whole area feels very uplifting and inspirational for practicing Bagua. I trust you will love this park as much as I do!
The resonant feel and privacy of various practice spots within Wilcox Park, and the prospect of bringing classes into my home in case of cold or rainy weather, will offer a more welcoming, personal, and family atmosphere for us all. I am really excited about this, as I have desired this sense of community for our classes for some time.
Speaking of family, one last thing to mention about this park, is that it has a children’s playground and a basketball court for those of you with children, in case you care to bring them and someone to watch them while you practice!
