Energy Bagua is a simple and easy-to-learn self-cultivation practice that integrates slow motion with stillness. Having grown in popularity around the globe, Energy Bagua has attracted people from all walks of life.

Given that it is comprised of slow walking movements, is Energy Bagua a suitable practice for pregnant women? Let’s listen to Grandmaster JinBodhi’s advice.


Can pregnant women practice Energy Bagua? This is a good question. Under normal circumstances, for a normal, healthy woman, exercising during pregnancy is usually fine. I have seen foreign specialist doctors posting pregnancy education videos which advocate yoga, swimming, light running and even table tennis. Engaging in suitable exercise is fine.

But it is different for some pregnant women, those who experience miscarriage easily. For some, it is hard to conceive and carry the fetus. I once visited a pregnant woman. She lay on the sofa every day with her legs lifted up high. She dared not even sneeze as she was afraid it might affect fetal development. This is a sign of an unhealthy body condition.

For a healthy pregnant woman, light exercises such as Energy Bagua are not a problem. Energy Bagua benefits a pregnant woman’s health. Thus, if your body is normal, which means you are not experiencing symptoms of a miscarriage, I welcome you to practice Energy Bagua. It will only bring benefits. Energy Bagua will boost your energy and vitality. It is a method that automatically regulates our health and stability. It benefits both the pregnant woman and her baby.
