We had the pleasure of welcoming 2 renowned professors sent as ambassadors of the Chinese healing arts by the Chi Kung federation of Beijing. They shared with us the Chi kung form called : Yinjin Jing
In China when you want to say that something is good, you don’t say it the latest thing but rather the oldest thing.
Yinjin Jing (Muscle-Tendon Changing Classic), is one of China’s most renowned energy cultivating forms. This time honored Chi Kung/Qi Gong form was developed in the 6th century by Tamo.
The basic purpose of Yijin Jing is to turn flaccid and frail sinews and tendons into strong and sturdy ones. Movements are energetic and intense, but you can see through a kind of peace. Yinjin Jing unifies Yi (intention) with Li (strength), consciousness (yang) with muscular force (yin). The mind is free from thoughts, has a correct and well-disposed attitude, the breathing is harmonious. According to Chinese tradition the first year of training gives back physical and mental vitality, the second year enhances blood circulation and nurtures meridians, the third year allows flexibility to muscles and nurtures the organs,the fourth year improves meridians and nurtures viscera, the fifth year washes the marrow and nurtures the brain.
Like lake water reflects the moon, a calm spirit allows energy to move inside the body.
