Yi means “to change, to replace, or to alter,” Jin means “muscles and tendons,” and Jing
means “classic or bible.” It is commonly translated as Muscle Tendon Changing referring
to all of the physical system including the internal organs. The Yi Jin Jing describes
Qigong training methods which are able to improve your physical body, health, building
up the Qi energy changing it from weak to strong.
The main goals of the training are
• To open up the twelve primary Qi channels then maintaining the appropriate
level of smooth Qi circulation.
• For those who also wish to train Xi Sui Jing and reach a higher level, Yi Jin Jing
training is needed to build up the necessary level of Qi.
