    In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), the concept of Yin and Yang serves as the foundation for understanding health, as well as diagnosing and treating illnesses. Yin-yang is first referenced in the I Ching (Book of Changes), which was written around BC.

In Ancient Chinese philosophy, yin and yang (/ j ɪ n / and / j ɑː ŋ, j æ ŋ /; Chinese: 陰 陽 yīnyáng, lit. "dark-bright", "negative-positive") is a concept of dualism, describing how seemingly opposite or contrary forces may actually be complementary, interconnected, and interdependent in the natural world, and how they may give rise to each other as they interrelate to one : 陰陽.

Note: there are several types of Qi. Each is relatively more Yin or Yang. Ancestral QI (more Yin, more slow moving. Moves in long slow cycles).

Ying Qi (more Yang than Ancestral Qi, moves with Blood with which it is closely related). Ying is more Yin than Wei Qi. Wei Qi the most Yang form of Qi.

I love this Yin and Yang DVD - one long and slow stretching session and one short dynamic session. So I do each session on a different day depending on time constraints and my energy levels.

I do feel that attending yoga classes is essential too - so that the teacher is on 4/5(69). The principles of yin and yang are an important part of Huangdi Neijing or Yellow Emperor's Classic of Medicine. Written about 2, years ago, it is the earliest Chinese medical book.

It is believed that to be healthy, one needs to balance the yin and yang forces within one's own : Jun Shan. Body Meridians Book and Acu-Points Charts. The Yin represents the feminine side of nature, encompassing darkness, tranquility, expansion, depth, cold and wetness.

The moon and water are Yin elements. The Yang represents the masculine principle, encompassing light, activity, height, contraction, heat and dryness. The heaven, the sun and fire are Yang elements. In the Chinese Yin-Yang model, Yin (the black) contains a seed of Yang (in the form of a white dot).

There is Yin, but interestingly, Yin is also Yang because it contains some Yang. The truth is Yin can transform into Yang under certain conditions.

It can do this because Yang is present in Yin. So there is balance, but the relationship goes. A thing can be understood only in relation to something else.

This is the essential idea behind the use of the terms yin and yang. Yin and yang are terms used to describe relative opposite qualities or manifestations of Qi. If yin is form, then yang is function.

If yin is material, then yang is immaterial. The first mention of Yin and Yang are found in the I Ching, a book of cosmology established by this school, dating back to B.C. The ideas of Yin and Yang and the Five Elements were established as theoretical principles in order to understand the cosmos and man’s relation to the cosmological forces found in nature.

Yin and Yang: To truly understand qi it is important to grasp the concept of Yin-Yang. Yin is that portion of qi that is cold, passive, solid, heavy, descending, moist and dark; it is the physical or brute side of the universe.

Yang is ethereal. It is nebulous, hot, active, dry, rising and aggressive. A chart of different yin-yang relationships. These may move qi n the natural direction of the channels, or work against the natural order by bringing yin energy to yang channels or yang energy to yin channels.

Another type of Qi Gong works with the quality of qi within the body as a whole, and not dependent on the channels. For example, “condensing” exercises such as Five Line.

Yin and Yang. In the I Ching (Book of Changes), written in approximately BCE, it is stated that all phenomena are said to be reduced to Yin/Yang.

Balance is one of the most important concepts of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Yin/Yang is a constant, continual flow through which everything is expressed on the one hand and recharged on the other.

Yinyang, Wade-Giles romanization yin-yang, Japanese in-yō, in Eastern thought, the two complementary forces that make up all aspects and phenomena of is a symbol of earth, femaleness, darkness, passivity, and absorption.

It is present in even numbers, in valleys and streams, and is represented by the tiger, the colour orange, and a broken line. Yin and Yang theory is an amazing concept that is much more complicated than it would seem.

It is one of the fundamental ideas in Traditional Chinese Medicine TCM. Yang usually referred to the male sex, whereas Yin could refer to the female sex. Man and Woman were the equivalent of heaven and earth, but became disconnected.

Therefore, while heaven and earth are eternal, man and woman suffer a premature death. Every. Qi, along with the theory of yin and yang (the harmony of seemingly opposite forces), are the two core components of TCM. It’s thought that a sufficient amount of qi is required to maintain the. Yin and Yang originally refer to the shady side and the sunny side, like on a tree: One side of its trunk faces the south and most of the sunlight, whereas the opposite side faces the north and is mostly in the shadow.

That may have been the very first polarity observed by those Chinese thinkers, long ago, who came up with the idea. The two fundamental forms of qi (life force) are yin-qi and yang-qi – the feminine and masculine energies.

The polarities that run through the philosophy are life and death, heaven and earth, night and day, health and sickness, poverty and wealth, positive and negative, and the cycles of season.

Daoism - Daoism - Early eclectic contributions: Yin and yang literally mean “dark side” and “sunny side” of a hill. They are mentioned for the first time in the Xice, or “Appended Explanations” (c.

4th century bce), an appendix to the Yijing (Book of Changes): “A succession of yin and yang is called the Dao.” Yin and yang are two complementary, interdependent phases alternating. The I Ching (“Yì Jīng”) or Book of Changes is an important Chinese classic text that takes these Yin-Yang dynamics to the level of quantum calculus, setting out an array of 64 archetypal situations which can arise in life, through combinations of Yin and Yang movements — situations which themselves may be in either a changing state, or.

In India the theory of the three elements in the Chândogya Upanishad led to the theory of the three forces, the guṇas, and to the later theory of five China, the theory of five elements coexisted early with the theory of two forces: can also simply be called the "two forces," (where ch'i, is the "breath" or vital energy of the body, but.It tonifies the Du and Yin Qiao channels.
