Yugouliang, a small village in Zhangjiakou, North China's Hebei province, organized this event to mark the 10th anniversary of the establishment of national fitness day on August 8, attracting more than 140 villagers from four neighboring villagers to take part. Lu Wenzhen, the local Party chief, has turned to yoga to bring health, vitality and tourism to the remote hamlet.
