In a large and beautiful Beijing city park within walking distance from our hotel is just one popular location for morning Tai Chi exercises. This lady was alone in her own group of one but for the most part the park was full of Tai Chi groups featuring a wide assortment of props and skill levels. Groups worked out with swords, flags, ribbons of some sort, large inflatable balls, you name it.

Great shot from Beijing. I am glad you have not centered your subject, indeed with a painterly eye you've put her off about 35% from one side. (Artists often divide their canvases into "thirds." And consciously or unconsciously, i.e. intuitively, you have cropped the photo very close to the golden ratio of 1:1.618, known to be especially appealing to the aesthetic senses. (Yours is 1:1.59.)
