Senior people practice Taiji sword at the Temple of Heaven park in Beijing, capital of China, Aug. 19, 2020. For 68-year-old Zhang Liangui, the Temple of Heaven means more than a UNESCO World Heritage Site, since he often does morning exercise in the park around the historic site. On Aug.17, Zhang came early to warm up in a clearing surrounded by red walls and green trees amid echoes of birds and insects. Kicking, squatting, playing Taiji sword, a set of warm-up movements showed his flexible and sturdy physique. While warming up, he was waiting for master Yang Shuqin and other elderly friends. For more than six consecutive years, Zhang has followed master Yang Shuqin to work out on traditional Chinese aerobics like Taijiquan, Taiji fan and Baduanjin. Benefiting from constant practice of the sports, Zhang's hypertension and hyperlipidaemia have been cured, and even his bad temper has changed.
