What is Xin Yi (Heart Minded)?

Xin Yi is a centuries old martial arts used in China. While the fighting techniques may not be helpful when handling situations at the office, the strategies linking the mind and body are useful. Xin Yi involves the ideas of Six Harmonies that also appear in Kung Fu and other martial arts. The three internal harmonies connect the mind with will, energy, and power.

Internal Harmonies

  1. XIn and Yi: Connects the mind (Xin) with the heart or will (Yi).
  2. Yi and Qi: Connects the will (Yi) with natural energy (Qi).
  3. Qi and Li: Connects energy (Qi) with power (Li).

Reaching the internal harmonies is usually done through moving meditation that links the mind and body.
