China Day 15 (Tianjin)
After today's lecture about Chinese Management Philosophy and Methodology, and a two hour lunch and relaxation break, we went to a Tai Chi class at Nankai University. It was a very beautiful day outside and therefore an ideal time to take this class. The professor was very knowledgeable in her art and showed us basic Tai Chi maneuvers. The class did a fairly decent job of emulating these maneuvers but we struggled on some of them as well, especially the one's that require a good amount of flexibility. It was a very relaxing session of Tai Chi and this is unsurprising because one of the three main pillars of Tai Chi is to relax the body and mind. After a couple good hours of Tai Chi we were all sweating a good amount and the professor showed us a demonstration of Tai Chi at a normal pace. Needless to say, she knew what she was doing. After the Tai Chi class, we got the rest of our day off. It was a fun day all and all and I slept better than I have been previous days. I think the Tai Chi helped.
