    What to Expect
    Once you meet your guide, you can get ready for this unique tour. Enjoy a private Tai Chi class (1 hour) with a renowned local Tai Chi master, learn some basic gestures of 9 steps elementary Tai Chi Ch'uan as well as authentic methods to improve internal energy (Qi) that helps to maintain people's good health. Then visit the Temple of Heaven on a walking tour for another 1.5 hour.

    The Temple of Heaven, formerly called the Temple of Heaven and Earth, was first built in the 18th year (1420) of the Yongle reign under Ming (1368-1644) Emperor Chengzu, where the emperors of Ming and Qing dynasties (1368-1911) offered sacrifices to the Gods of Heaven and Earth. In the 9th year (1530) of the Jiajing reign in the Ming Dynasty, a temple was especially built to offer sacrifices to the God of Earth in the northern suburban of Beijing, which was named the Temple of Earth, and therefore the Temple of Heaven and Earth, changed into the present name, was used only to worship the Heaven and pray for grain. This is one of the must go attractions in Beijing.

    I have frequently encouraged people to try TaiChi, and always said "one day" I'll try it myself. Well, my first lesson in the park at Temple of Heaven, led by a master, was truly informative and encouraging to continue.
