I am no teacher of Bagua, but I have studied for 5 years under one of Adam Hsu's Teachers. I have also studied Wudang Bagua with Master Yuan Xiu Gang on Wudang Mountain along with Wudang Tai Chi 28
http://wudanggongfu.com/kungfu/wudang.htm . I currently teach Yang Chen Man Ching Tai chi, but would be happy to walk you through a few things. I see that have you have studied many arts though, are you sure you want to go into the depths of bagua? :)

yea, walk him in circles for 2 months. Speaking of walking. right now I am practicing more Wudang Bagua than anything else. Its funny how different the stepping styles can be from one another. Chicken walk, mud walk, stalking tiger, and the one I use the most is the sliding snake step. Its definitely more challenging and a really tight walk. Your balance is different from the others too because its a pushing step and you have to be really soft to slide the foot over rough terrain. On Wudang we trained on really old grounds and the floor was stone squares that were all uneven and grass was growing out of the cracks. Try doing snake step over that. Also in Wudang snake stepping your not quite walking a circle, more like 8 flats, like the bagua itself. but yes, still in a circle.

Sounds quite complicated.

From the limited exposure I've had (vids on youtube) to wudang bagua, it looks like a nice practice.
