This is a great month. We hope you had a
rejuvenating and/or exhilarating Chinese New
Year. As usual record amounts of people went
to a record amount of places and did a record
amount of good and not so good things.
With the celebrations coming to a close and
the year beginning in earnest, we have a few
more excellent distractions to keep you busy
through the month of March.
First off, we want to say a huge thanks to
everyone who came to help raise money for
single mothers in Ningbo. You helped to raise
3,875 RMB and the party was a blast. It was a
great way to start the year. We have a lot more
excellent charity parties lined up and we'll let
you know when and where you can help.
For parties in the month of March, it's obvious
that St. Patrick's Day is just around the corner.
The biggest party for that will be in Laowaitan.
Venues like Eudora Station have great parties
planned, don't miss it.
The other epic blowout is HOLI. The Hindu
religious festival of colors is a bit of a tradition
in Ningbo. Annually hosted throughout the
city there are a lot of separate chances to
celebrate the holiday. We recommend the
party hosted by Ganesha Indian Restaurant.
The food will be delicious, there is alcohol,
and it's the best place to enjoy yourself without
disrupting those observing the holiday for
actual religious reasons. And no, just because
your Vodka Red Bull is pink doesn't mean
it's also celebrating HOLI. Have fun and be
respectful 'Bo.
For those of you who want to put something
else inside your brains besides the next season
of The Walking Dead... (if no one raises
their hand, we get it) there is the Bookworm
International Literary Festival at UNNC.
They have some great guest speakers headed
in to talk about some really interesting
topics ranging from communism in the UK,
to modern sexuality, to tracing the route
of Genghis Khan on horseback. There's a
complete schedule in our Arts section. Please
head there and check it out, everything is free.
Next, we received some great submissions
for our Photo & Essay Contest! Please keep
sending them in. It's a great way for everyone
to see and share what it is to live in Ningbo.

to North Korea to run the Pyongyang

It is a once in a lifetime kind of thing, so

Hello Everybody! Considering that our foreign friends who live
in Ningbo may encounter problems while learning Chinese.
Beyond Mandarin Chinese Training & Culture Experience
Center would like to take this opportunity to interview some
students who are studying in our school to share their learning
and life experience in Ningbo. We hope this column can help
you in some aspects. Last but not least, we look forward to
your suggestions. Please e-mail Nicki with any comments:
[email protected] Thank you for your interest!
The following interview was originally in Chinese, and has been
translated by Jo.
Nicki: Hi Jo. Long time no see! Can you introduce yourself?
Jo: Long time no see, Nicki. Ok, I’m Jo, I’m an Australian. I used
to work in China, now my family and I have returned to live in
Australia. I was a science teacher in international schools in China.
Nicki: When did you first come to China?
Jo: I first came to China in 2003. At that time I lived in Qingtian,
Zhejiang where I was a spoken English teacher for two years. After
that I returned to Australia to give birth to my twins. When the
children were six months old I moved to Vietnam for work. I lived
in Vietnam for three years working as an international school
teacher. Following this my father’s health was not too good, so the
family moved to Thailand to be nearer to him. One year later his
health had improved and so we came back to China where I worked
for one year in Guangzhou and then the last two years in Ningbo.
Nicki: Why did you come to China the first time?
Jo: My husband and I both wanted to try something completely
different. Qingtian is small place in China, it’s great and its certainly
different to our pre-2003 lives.
Nicki: When you first came to China what problems did you
Jo: Generally speaking Chinese people are friendly, but at that time
not many could speak English. Any communication was quite
simple, never a deep exchange. Of course people wanted to help me,
but sometimes I preferred to do the tasks myself. Australian people
tend to have a large personal space, and if you are not accustomed
to people trying to do all the little things for you then it can feel
NI NGB O G U ID E | M A RC H 20 1 5
quite strange.
Nicki: Are you accustomed to this now?
Jo: When I first arrived I was not accustomed, now I’m used to
this manner of doing things.
Nicki: These problems you encountered, how did you solve
Jo: You really must learn Chinese, and you need to understand
different cultures have different ways of doing things.
Nicki: When do you start to study Chinese?
Jo: (Haha, you know this!) I began studying Chinese in 2013.
Both Qingtian and Zengcheng in Guangzhou were small places
and did not have language centres for foreigners. I self studied
with the help of my colleagues, but I didn’t feel comfortable
with this. We were all teachers, when we finished work the last
thing I wanted to be asking them to do was to give me a lesson.
After coming to Ningbo I found Beyond Mandarin.
Nicki: Why do you study Chinese?
Jo: I have enough Chinese to get by, but I don’t like to sound like
a child when I speak, I feel uncomfortable and awkward and
usually want to say more than I am able. My Qingtian friends
are all very normal people, none of their specialities are English
so if we want to chat more freely I should learn more Chinese.
Often I would go to Qingtian for weekends from Ningbo, my
friends and I would go camping, share meals and drink beer

any English we communicate with my Chinese language and body

and I was taught a little how to play the erhu. We know each other
well so we have a good exchange.

like earrings and bracelets. With the profits she helped rural school
children. I helped her by donating clothing and school supplies.
Nicki: You lived in Qingtian for two years, then you moved to
other places to live. Did you still keep helping in orphanages and
in old people’s homes?
Jo: At the time it was difficult to help directly. There was some
concern I was a foreign correspondent. In order for me to help I
passed all my donations through the university student I had met,
her name is Dong Li. Back in Ningbo I was introduced to the
Ningbo Charity Federation and was able to begin the small charity
“Keneng”. Gradually my relationships with people in Ningbo and
Qingtian grew. I was trusted in Qingtian and could go to the places
directly and also people in Ningbo donated goods to me that I
would take to Qingtian to be distributed. Thank you generous
Ningbo people.
Nicki: Beyond Mandarin boss Sophia Wan has connections with
Ningbo Charity Federation. Beyond Mandarin staff know many
foreigners would like to help Chinese people, but they don’t
know how. So we give them an introduction to Ningbo Charity
Federation. Beyond Mandarin is very happy to have helped you
start “Keneng”
Jo: Before starting “Keneng” it was very difficult to begin a
relationship with local organisations. Since starting “Keneng” it is
much easier to help. Ningbo Charity Federation helps with the first
introduction and then “Keneng” can work in these places or make
donations. The organisations are not afraid of me being a stranger,
they realise “Keneng” can be trusted. Now I live in Australia I hope
to be able to set up an international side to Keneng which can feed
into the Chinese Keneng to allow it to help even more. My family
and friends are very supportive of this.
Nicki: I know you don’t live in China anymore, but you plan
to come back 2 or 3 times each year. I also heard when you

The answers to your questions on foreign
investment in China are provided by Maria Kotova,
Senior Associate of the Shanghai and Ningbo
offices of Dezan Shira & Associates. Although this
information is considered accurate as of the time
of writing, it is not to be construed as legal, tax,
or financial advice. To ask Maria a question about
setting up or running a business in China, please
email [email protected]
Dear Maria,
I have been working in Ningbo for more than 90 days but less than one year, am I still
liable to pay Individual Income Tax (IIT)?
An individual who has resided in China for more than 90 days but less than one year
during the tax year is subject to IIT on all China- sourced income (the “One-year Rule”),
including income paid by both Chinese and overseas entities for his/her work in China.
Income earned while working overseas (i.e., foreign- sourced income) in the tax year is
not Chinese IIT taxable.
However the One-year Rule does not apply to foreign individuals hired as directors
or other senior executives of enterprises located in China. Their full income as senior
executives is subject to Chinese IIT starting from the initial tax year of employment and
lasting until the final tax year of employment, regardless of how long they have actually
resided in China.
Dear Maria,
I have just set up a consulting company in Ningbo and I am looking at employing foreign nationals in China.
Given recent amendments to visa regulations what would be the best way to go about doing this?
The revised law mainly introduced a number of new visa categories, increasing the total number from eight to
12, and altered the scope of a few existing categories.
Both R and Z- visas are official working visas. For the time being the Z- visa is the most common type used
by foreigners working in China. It will likely remain so, considering the stricter requirements and remaining
uncertainty regarding the R- Visa.
An employee on a Z- visa needs to subsequently apply for a residence permit. The residence permit allows the
foreigner to stay in China for the length of time as stipulated by the permit, usually one year. This is reviewed
every year and Iit also allows him/her an unlimited number of trips into and out of the country.
Dear Maria,
I am a director of a medical device company registered in the US; I am looking at investing in China.
What is the current financial climate for the medical device industry in China and how should I go about
distribution in the Chinese market? I am thinking of registering a subsidiary in China set up as a foreigninvested commercial enterprise.
As China’s population ages and its living standards improve, the demand for medical devices is only set to
increase. Foreign companies looking to enter the Chinese market are well- advised to carefully consider the
advantages of different distribution models.
Some suggestions: First locate when and where you would like to distribute in China and then contact the
services of a local Chinese distributor that has good credit and connections in the medical device industry in
that area. The distributor will then receive goods and is responsible for sales in China. They will also complete
customs clearance, remits payments overseas. The subsidiary company will only be there for support in terms
of managing client relationships in China. The pros of this model are that there is a maximum net profit for
the company and minimum net tax liability for the subsidiary company. The subsidiary company is not bound
by a 90- day payment window, owing to the distributing company as the direct importer. The frequency of
inspections by the authorities could also be lessened to some extent because of the distributor’s good standing
in China. The downfalls of this system are that the pricing system of the products will be highly influenced
by the distributor. Also the IP protection and the security of goods will be more difficult to control due to the
distributor’s role.

“Nali Lai de?” – An Overview of Expat Demographics in China
By Zhou Qian and Steven Elsinga
For further details or to contact the firm, please email [email protected]
or visit
With its unique culture, vast
geographic size, and fastgrowing economy, China
has long held a special
appeal for foreign visitors.
For more than twenty years,
the last of these reasons has
drawn a wave of foreign job
seekers to China to start
or continue their careers.
Being a foreign employee
in China, however, is not
always smooth nor easy,
especially considering the
markets and regulatory
system. Here we provide
a quick sketch of China’s
expat demographics, with
the next article excerpted
magazine focusing on work
visa procedures.
working in China
There can be no doubt that
in recent years, China’s
expatriate make-up has been
changing. With the country’s
domestic work force steadily
positions are increasingly
being taken on by Chinese
talent, often with foreign
degrees in hand and without
the cultural disconnect of
previous generations. The
role of expats is changing as
well. Where multinationals
once came to China
mostly for manufacturing
and exporting, they are
now increasingly here
to access the Chinese
consumer market, and
are shifting their focus to
logistics, warehousing and
distribution accordingly.
The overall number of
expats working in China
has increased dramatically
since the launch of “reform
and opening-up” (in 1978).
According to China’s most
recent National Census held
in 2010 – the first to record
the number of foreigners
residing in China – there
are at least 600,000 expats
working or living in cities
throughout the country,
broken down by nationality
in the chart provided.
The Ins and Outs of How to Establish a Business in Ningbo

different ways to establish a business in Ningbo. The seminar was
attended by many members of Ningbo's business community,
including those who are already established in the city and those
who are just getting started. During the seminar, representatives
from Innocorp outlined the advantages and disadvantages
of different business configurations, including establishing a
WFOE, a representative office or a Hong Kong-based company.
Innocorp representatives also outlined different tax strategies
By Innocorp
for businesses looking to maximize their economic efficiency.
Attendees learned vital information on how to establish
businesses and stay competitive in Ningbo's growing economy.
Innocorp would like to thank its co-organizer Xin Gang

as all who attended, and is look forward to hosting more events
of this nature in the future.
Hear the ladies
Meet some of the most
inspiring women in
With International Women's Day
falling in March, it's high time we
spotlight some of the things our
city's amazing women are doing.
From racing to right hooks, these
are the women of Ningbo.
We wanted to share with you some
of the inspiring and fascinating
women that make up Ningbo. The
women we have here are just
a sample of a larger population
that is truly international, driven,
independent, and talented.
Many of the women in Ningbo
engage in professions and activities
where you might not see their
gender represented that often,
others are engaged in professions
where competition is fierce because
of their gender.
Neither of those things stopped
them and we want to give a pause
for that. On these pages are some
women that did things as people
first and women second that we
find constantly inspirational. Thank
you ladies.

I think confidence
and persistence can
help in so many ways
in life.
Have you tried other types of perforiming or
any other physical activity?
I studied Guzheng, and I was trained in singing
by professionals before. But because I was
forced to learn, I wasn’t interested, so I quit.
When I was 15, I learned a lot about pilates, and
I became interested in fitness. It helped me with
relaxing my muscles from dance practice, and
helped with releasing stress. Still now, when I
have time, I head to the gym to work out.
Ballet is a western style of dance and has been
around for about 500 years. It only came to
China around 60 years ago, and in Zhejiang
province for only the past 10 years. It’s a kind
of art that’s popular among a small group of
people. So making it popular and promoting
ballet in Ningbo will need more time. To me,
what I can do is to teach my students what I
learned from abroad and get people interested
in ballet. That's what is important to me.
What do you think is the most enjoyable or
rewarding part of ballet?
Ballet is a very beautiful and elegant kind of
dance. It changes not only your body shape, it
makes you feel good. But it also helps you build
your inner-confidence and persistence in doing
things. I think confidence and persistence can
help in so many ways in life.

The Pyongyang Marathon
Now in its second year open to amateur foreign runners,
the Pyongyang Marathon is set for April 12th 2015. The
marathon made waves last year as it allowed some great
glimpses into life in Pyongyang. The marathon is one of the
only ways to see Pyongyang in a slightly less guided way.
Granted that the route is obviously fixed, Canadian Jen
Loong who ran the race last year said in a Q&A on Reddit,
“This was one of the special perks of the run, where we ran
unguided for the full distance, high five-ing local along the
way… We couldn’t run off tracks surely with soldier on
every block, but running at your own pace and interacting
with locals was good enough for me!”
Jen Loong opted for an extended tour package that allowed
her to stay in North Korea for around a week in total, but
shorter trip options are available with Uri Tours. She gained
notoriety last year along with some other foreigners who
instagrammed their trips and the marathon.

interesting way to do it. The race itself is professional and well
organized and as far as travel goes, there aren’t many people who
have set foot where this race will go. As a runner, we are more
than excited to take part in the race. And as a traveler, North
Korea is one of big ones to tick off. Without a tour, it’s impossible
to cross that border. With this tour however, you can not only
cross the border, you can run for it.

A Dinner With Stanley
Jong, Chef and Owner
of Stanley Fusion
Fusion is an idea pretty central to
Malaysia, where Stanley Jong started
his life. The diverse country is home
to a plethora of ethnic groups, each
of them with their own cultural and
culinary traditions. So it seemed
natural for the chef and entrepreneur
to make fusion the centerpiece of his
career in food.

We were invited to join Jong for dinner at the
Tiantong Lu location of Stanley Fusion, one of his
restaurants. These dinners often revolve around
food and the business of selling it in Ningbo,
which can be a daunting place to try something as
adventurous as Jong is going for.
As the table began to fill up with food, the concept
behind the restaurant—a fusion of Southeast Asian
cuisines as imagined by Stanley Jong himself—
became increasingly clear. Jong has spent the
majority of his career as a chef floating around the
world, and in doing so has had ample opportunity
to play with the elements of Malaysian, Thai,
Indonesian and other Asian cuisines and to see
what works and what doesn't. After parking it in
Ningbo for a little while, the result is an ambitious
and seamless blend of some of the world's greatest
culinary traditions.
From first glance, the restaurant is a roomy and
attractive place to sit and eat. As is thankfully
becoming the norm in newer establishments,
there are different “zones” of seating throughout
the place. There are several large private
rooms on the second floor along with smaller,
more intimate tables in general seating areas.
Downstairs features more general seating but in
a place that looks like it could be arranged into
an area well-suited for events and parties.
there are a tremendous number of varieties.
Stanley's is based around bright, zesty curry
and fresh prawn. Laksa is a microcosm of what
Stanley Fusion strives to do, and the restaurant
absolutely nailed it.
Jong also proved a great host, as a few glasses of
wine were poured and Stanley had time to sit
and chat, we got to talking about the origins of
different elements of the food we were eating.
It was nice to meet the man behind the food,
and discover that he himself is just as interesting

One of the first dishes we were served was a sort

All hail the mighty swine. Discerning diners and cantankerous chefs
will usually agree that no animal reigns more edible than the pig.
There may be pieces of other animals that hit levels of delicious
that no other creature could but there is no other animal that can
be used head to toe to make some of the best food. From China to
France the pigs foot is just the beginning of using pork to its fullest.
And seeing as pork is a sort of national meat in China, every month
we'll bring you a new way to get the most out of the tasty pig.
Lard is the mother of all cooking fats. It's gotten a bad name over the last few decades as
people have turned to vegetable oils as “healthier” alternatives. Lard, as delicious as we
know it to be, has some pretty negative connotations with regards to health. So let's disspell
a few rumors here first.
Farm-raised animal fats contain a mixture
of monounsaturated, polyunsatured and
saturated fats. A good majority of that is the
monounsaturated fat known as oleic fatty
acid. Healthy eaters will recognize this as
the same fatty acid in olive oil that gets all
the praise and attention for lowering your
risk of heart disease.
Not that we would claim a lard-based diet
as healthy. Just that it's not really too much
worse than any other cooking fat you'd use.
Moderation, folks.
Moving on.
For a country as pork-crazed as China it is
next to impossible to buy lard. Which is a

The first step is ensuring that you've separated
any and all tissue from the fat. Any left in there
will adversely effect the flavor of your lard.
From here, it's pretty straightforward. The
absolute best tool for this is a slow-cooker. If
you don't have one already, buy one. It'll change
your life.
Put ¼ cup of water at the bottom of your slowcooker, and turn it to its lowest setting. Let it
cook for an hour or two. Next, prepare a bowl
or pot by stretching out a fine strainer* over top
of it. Then, while the slow-cooker is still hot,
slowly pour the contents into the pot, allowing
for the oils to strain through while leaving the
ground up fleshy bits in the strainer.
Then, move the oil to whatever container you'd
like to keep it in. Note that lard is extremely
shelf-stable, meaning it'll last a really long time.
It's easier to make a bunch at once and freeze
some of it than make it little-by-little.
And that's it. Once you've unlocked the power
of lard, you'll never go back. Godspeed.

That's not to imply that owner Odin Chou hasn't done something novel with
Whiskyfind. To the contrary he's built a well-executed and unique space. For
starters, the place isn't technically a bar. It's more of a whiskey shop with a tasting
area. The interior has an almost mountain lodge look to it, and in addition to a
dizzying amount of whiskeys for sale features a lot of vintage cameras, a side passion
of Chou's. The shop is also delightfully out-of-the-way, hidden up on the third floor
of an otherwise unassuming building near the church-end of Laowaitan (next to
where Bourbon Street used to be for all you old-timers).
It's a great place to avoid Laowaitan's see-and-be-seen crowd and actually enjoy a
drink and a nice chat. Talk about a novel concept.

Never heard of Ningbo?!
by Tess Humphrys
Way back in 2012, when I told friends in Britain I was moving to China, among the
many reactions I got was: “wow, cool China. Where you going? Beijing, Shanghai?
Hong Kong (is that China?!)?”
When I told people I was moving to Ningbo, however, pretty much all drew a
blank: “Ningbo, where’s that?” This was apart from one friend who had heard of
the city because he works for DIY store B&Q and had seen a list of all the stores in
China, including the one at Wanda Plaza. Still, he didn’t know any more than that.
I have to admit their lack of knowledge was understandable. I had no idea where
Ningbo was until I applied for a job at The University of Nottingham Ningbo
China (UNNC). And I still had no idea of the city’s significance even by the time
I actually moved here.
Fast-forward two years and I’ve been surprised to realise just what an influence
Ningbo has had, particularly on world history and trade.
When I tell foreign friends about Ningbo, I start by mentioning the city’s huge
port, the starting point out into the world for huge amounts of the cheap goods
produced in China. Imagine, I say to friends back in Britain, the vast quantities of
‘Made in China’ products you buy that have passed through Ningbo, all without
you realising. Ningbo’s port is well-known across the globe. In fact, a couple of
African international students at UNNC told me they knew about Ningbo purely
from the ships carrying its name that enter the port in their hometown.
And it’s not just nowadays that Ningbo has been on the world trade map – it’s
featured heavily on British maps as far back as the 19th Century thanks to its
position on China’s eastern coast, giving easy access to Hangzhou’s tea trade and
the trading opportunities available by accessing the Yangtze river. But, it wasn’t
just goods coming out of Ningbo that interested the British, it was what they could
get into the country that sealed the city’s fate for a period of time.
Most British people know that Hong Kong was once under British control, but few
of my friends realise the connection Ningbo has with Britain. After the conclusion
of the First Opium War in 1842 (where the British, rather shamefully, flooded
China with opium to address trade imbalances between the two nations), Ningbo
became one of five treaty ports that allowed the British to deal directly with
Chinese traders, without using middlemen as had been the case up until then.
This helped to massively increase British profits and deepened British interests
in China. Ningbo, along with the other treaty ports, had a British Consul that
had authority over the British residents and could negotiate directly with Chinese
representatives in a way that had previously been difficult. You can still see the
building that housed the British Consul at the port in Ningbo, a reminder of this
shared past. While not the most positive time in Ningbo’s history – indeed the
Treaty of Nanking that granted the British the five ports was an extremely onesided agreement – it is fascinating to realise the connections between Ningbo and
Britain, even before The University of Nottingham arrived here 10 years ago.
And while it remains to be seen whether Ningbo ever becomes well-known enough
internationally to be thought of alongside Shanghai, Beijing et al, I certainly enjoy
educating my foreign friends about its hidden significance.

A study in the Journal of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry
discovered that psychiatric patients who were anxious and depressed reported
being much more relaxed, happy and having lower stress levels following massage.
Massage could also help those with serious or terminal illnesses deal with the
mental issues that come along with them. A 2005 study in the International Journal
of Neuroscience found that women been diagnosed with breast cancer who had
received massage three times a week reported being less angry and less depressed.
It Can Help You Get More
Sleep and Better Sleep
Sometimes sleep can be hard to come by
in this city, what with friends and family
in different time zones and the occasional
5am fireworks show. While diet and
exercise are crucial to catching the proper
amount of Zs, massage can also help ensure
a full restful eight.
Massage promotes relaxation and comfort,
two feelings associated with sleeping well.
In addition, the physical side of massage
reduces muscle tension and aches which
may be keeping you from getting your
snooze on properly.
A study at the University of Warwick
showed that infants who got some form
of massage slept more and cried less than
those who didn't. So if you're feeling like
it's hard to “sleep like a baby,” it might be
good to take a lesson or two from them.

It Can Improve Your Immune System
Some of us can't catch a break when it comes to catching a cold, especially those of us who are often working
around children. Spring can be especially bad as that Ningbo weather brings us four seasons in a day, seriously
mixing up our bodies' immune systems.
But according to the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine, massage can actually help to raise the
number of white blood cells—your knights in shining armor when it comes to fighting disease—that your body
It Can Make That Nagging
Headache Disappear
No, not your next trip to the visa office, actual headaches.
We can all agree that headaches are just the worst. They seemingly come out of
nowhere and make us irritable and distracted, a bad combination when you've got
things to do.
A study at the University of Granada in Spain found that massage therapy relieved the
pain and tension from both temporary and chronic headaches almost immediately.
So whether your head is thumping from the elements or the night before, it might
be the right time to set up an appointment with your friendly local spa.

Yoga P E R F E C T I O N
by Gabriella Butarazzi
Gabriella Butarazzi
Gabriella Buttarazzi first
encountered the established
Teacher Training School Yoga
Integral Dharma Ananda
whilst living in Valencia,
Spain from 2010. Before
that, quite like many, she
had only dabbled with yoga
as a recreational activity.
Noticing the profound
effects it had on her body
and mind, she decided to
train in and subsequently
teach Integral Yoga. It has
been an on-going process of
learning from and adapting
to her inspiring students.
She has built a resources
and information site in
both Chinese and English in
order to further support her
students here in Ningbo.

The mind strives for perfection. When the mind doesn't get (it's rather
impossible wouldn't you say?) it berates; self-scrutiny is the source of much
stress and anxiety in our lives. Thoughts shoot out: I am not good enough. I
am a failure. I am useless. When we embark on yoga, that is “the journey of
the self, to the self, through to the self " (The Bhagavad Gita) through a regular
yoga practice, we become wise to this self-scrutiny.
Ahimsa, the practice of non-violence is just as much a practice of behaviour
towards ourselves. Driving for perfection in each yoga pose (or asana in
Sanskrit) encourages us and motivates us, but when we are in yoga, it is not
about striving for something at all. It is simply the practice and art of presence.
It is not something we even really do: as Sharon Gannon of Jivamukti Yoga
says "you cannot do yoga. Yoga is your natural state. What you can do are
yoga exercises, which may reveal to you where you are resisting your natural
state". So when we attend yoga classes, we try to do the asana as the yoga
teacher shows us. Perhaps we strain ourselves (just a little is OK), enter into a
competitive mode (start looking at how others do it), get frustrated (feelings
that you’re not loose or flexible enough) or sometimes even injure ourselves
(by pushing our bodies too far). All for striving for that perfection rather than
being present in the moment of the practice.

what is integral yoga?
course description
Integral Yoga fuses techniques of Hatha Yoga
(working with the physical body), Kundalini
Yoga (working with the energetic body)
and Dhyana Yoga (working with the mind/
meditation). A gentle but complete practice
to balance, relax and energise the body and
mind, improving overall health and wellbeing
upon regular practice.
Integral Yoga classes are held on both Tuesdays and Thursdays
at 17:15 – 18:45 and 19:00 – 20:30 above Zlife, near The
University of Nottingham in the Yinzhou area. Each 16-week
course costs 1,200 CNY for twice weekly attendance, and
600 CNY for once weekly attendance. Contact Gabriella on
+86 13957844966 or visit for
more information on Integral Yoga.
But actually it matters much less what we do with our bodies
in the yoga class, than the attitude we adopt whilst doing it.
A meditative state, a state of no-mind, and an easing into
the pose with grace, attention and intention are key. In that
way, when we move our bodies in and out of an asana we
are approaching it as a perfectionist. But not in the way
that out bodies must look, move and hold as perfectly as a
long-trained yogi or yogini, in the way that our bodies are
receiving every moment of our focus and presence, from the
joints to our extremities - fingers, toes, nose, we are present
and involved; in, before and after every asana.
let your body hang loose with hands resting on the block,
coupled with slow and gentle deep breathing of course.
B.K.S. Iyengar first really popularised the use of props in a
yoga practice as absolutely nothing to feel ashamed about,
but rather to assist us to really feel our bodies in the asana
and to experience it with both Sukha and Sthira, and not
simply one or the other as this would lead to a general lack
of presence.
So perfecting the yoga asana is not so much about looking
perfectly flexible and doing something semi-acrobatic,
although, with time and practice this usually happens
So when we move into an asana, it is about drawing our anyhow. But more like an art of grace and presence: "To
attention and awareness to our entire body: in sensations, perform every action artfully is yoga" (Swami Kripalu).
motions, breathe; and not simply
trying to imitate the perfect image
of the asana. With practice your
body fits into them naturally, as our
natural state. So, let’s say, you are in
Uttanasana (The Standing Forward
Bend) but can't quite touch the
ground with ease yet, if your focus
on striving for perfection is touching
the ground as the yogis and yoginis
do, you might decide to bend your
knees or force and strain your body
to achieve this.
But actually to order to be in the
space of both Sukha (stability) and
Sthira (comfort) and experience
your body in that asana, it's better
to use a prop like a yoga block and

I love the name MASTER T.
It's so close to being MISTER
T and I'm not sure if they
planned that or what's going
on. It's put me in a place where
I can't decide which I like
better. Way to go MASTER T.
Also, this place is gorgeous. It's
like drinking tea in beautifully
underlit art gallery that met a
kind of high-end pottery shop
and had a baby. That baby is

Ninghai Hot Springs
This is one of the more
beautiful hot springs in
the area. It has a fairly high
ranking online and that is due
to the fact that the many pools
are located outside.
You can walk up the hill and
find small hidden private
pools to relax in the warm
water. It's particularly great
when chilly outside. There are
buses to Ninghai regularly but
we usually recommend a hired
car for the day.

places they've put their hearts and souls into.
This city has come a long way since Ningbo Guide got started. Some
of you who've been here a while will remember when Starbucks
was one of the only places to get a decent cup of coffee, or when
Pizza Hut was your best bet for for a slice. But times have changed.
If you flip through the pages of a city magazine or just take a stroll
around Ningbo, you'll see them everywhere now. Small local
businesses. The lifeblood of a city. We love them, and we know that
you love them too. It's time to show that love to everyone, and with
this sticker, that's what we're doing.
This city--our city--is constantly evolving. The good news is you
get to help decide where it goes next! You do that with your wallet.
When you spend your hard-earned cash at a place with this sticker,
you can rest assured knowing that that money is staying right
here in Ningbo and not going into some huge corporate account
overseas. It's helping to build something even better, something
even more vibrant and diverse. And when you're walking around
this city in the future, marveling at just how far it's come over the
years, you'll know that you've been part of that. And you can be
