Excelent, thank you very much! Perhaps I should try that repellently smelly tofu thing lol
really useful, all the names of .. things :) and pinyin, thank you VERY much!!
wow, that' s absolutely invaluable (meaning priceless, very useful) listing, many thanks! Will print it out and carry in my bag :) I had an idea of compiling this sort of info but never got my hands down to actually doing it.
btw Dan' s pic galleries are amazing!
@ andrewp: I understand your frustration, but 1 month is nothing really... people come to China in a search of a qualified Master and after 1-2 years many leave disappointed. As you noticed, here it' s not like walking into a Martial arts center in the US or Europe, however there' s a notion of "yuanfen" – a special connection, luck, predestined meeting, hope you' re getting an idea. Few resources are fully googleable. Also check out chengduliving.com forum, there' s a thread or two on that, might be just what you' re after. It really depends what you're specifically looking for, your background and as pointed out by Invisible, commitment. I might have couple of references, but again, it depends... Do check out that forum. Good luck!
@ Ha-ha, Donna pardon me for asking, and what are these clinical studies that claim yoga to be "more influential than Tai Qi or Qigong for the mind and body" hmmm... a very bold statement, do refer me to some reliable sources for further reading (hope it' s not something you've read in a womens magazine). Isn't it pathetic how young Chinese disregard the centuries of wisdom in favor of some trendy stuff (Indian or whatever). Saying that, indeed yoga also holds a strong potential if understood and practiced properly, mind you I'm not talking about superficial understanding of yoga, qigong, etc, as of "relaxing and aerobic exercises" LOL
