Yi Jin Jing is a Chinese exercise system designed to increase strength, flexibility, and stamina. The activity utilizes a series of slow to moderate-paced movements during which participants take breaths rhythmically and meditate. In most of these movements, the palms are open and the participants are in a standing position with open eyes. Although the pace is designed to be gentle, in a room filled with participants, it is common for participants to feel warm or even sweat at the end of the exercise. Practitioners of Yi Jin Jing claim that regularly participating this activity will lead to better health and a stronger mind and body balance.
