With travel resuming for the renminbi holiday, it looks like Beijing is back in the days when it was empty for the holidays. A little silence is the best way to experiment with meditation and mindfulness.
Here are some mindfulness and yoga activities you’ve tried before, want to try, or have as your New Year’s resolution – there’s no excuse not to do it now – you can join in next week. Or even after the holidays.
