Morning Exercise at Temple of Heaven Park (Beijing, China)

Right after I finished visiting the beautiful Temple of Heaven, I stumbled upon this unique park where older people were getting their morning exercise ON! If you ever visit China, you will soon realize that there is a deep sense of community all around you – people participate in community dancing, community sports, community cooking, community game nights and as you see here community exercising! Although it was great to see such solidarity and comradery, I couldn’t help but find their exercises a bit funny and odd. I’m not quite sure what many people were doing, but they seemed to really be in there zone!

Regardless of their funky stretches and workout, they deserve a big round of applause for staying active and healthy. Take that youth!
