Yi Jin Jing

Yi Jin Jing exercises are thought to have their origins in primitive shamanistic rituals. The earliest description of the exercises is found in The History of the Han Dynasty nearly 2000 years ago. It was developed thereafter by the Indian Buddhist monks who created Shaolin Martial arts. 

The excercises require the practitioner to keep his or her spirit totally relaxed. It involves the integration of mind and body, natural breathing, gentle movements infused with strength, and an interplay of the substantial and the insubstantial. The movements form a continuous integrity, focusing on tendon stretching and bone flexing and combining softness and strength. An essential part of the routine is natural breathing, assisted by calmness of the mind to make the circulation of vital energy as unimpeded as possible. 

Easy to learn and perform this refreshing exercise has impressive health and fitness effects and is adaptable to all ages.
