In Energy Profiling, we teach that yin energy is an inward movement, with yang energy being an outward movement.
Each Energy Type, therefore, has a corresponding yin/yang combination, along with keywords that describe the quality of that movement. For example, Type 1 starts with a yang movement that moves outward and is animated, followed by a yin movement that is light and crisp.
Here’s the complete list of each dominate Energy Type with its corresponding yin/yang movement:
Type 1 Yang/Yin
- Yang: outward, animated
- Yin: light, crisp
Type 2 Yin/Yin
- Yin: flow inward
- Yin: soft, relaxed
Type 3 Yang/Yang
- Yang: push forward
- Yang: substantial, edgy
Type 4 Yin/Yang
- Yin: still, reflective
- Yang: bold, structured
A more in-depth look at each of these yin/yang definitions can be found here.
Your dominant and secondary Energy Type creates a yin/yang combination.
As you continue to learn about your dominant and secondary Energy Type, it’s very insightful to understand the yin/yang combination and how this quality of movement influences your natural expression.
In this video, you will see a lineup of women from each dominant and secondary Energy Types so you can see which combination is the highest, most-expressive movement down to the lowest, more-still movement on the opposite end.
In addition, each of the women shares what her yin/yang combo means to her and how it affects how she moves through life.
This is a list of each dominant and secondary Energy Types with its corresponding yin/yang combination:
- T3/S1 Yang Yang Yang Yin
- T1/S3 Yang Yin Yang Yang
- T3/S4 Yang Yang Yin Yang
- T1/S4 Yang Yin Yin Yang
- T3/S2 Yang Yang Yin Yin
- T4/S3 Yin Yang Yang Yang
- T1/S2 Yang Yin Yin Yin
- T2/S3 Yin Yin Yang Yang
- T4/S1 Yin Yang Yang Yin
- T2/S1 Yin Yin Yang Yin
- T4/S2 Yin Yang Yin Yin
- T2/S4 Yin Yin Yin Yang
Here are some of the patterns you’ll notice in this video:
- If you were to fold this list in half, you would see combinations mirror each other. For example, starting at one end: 3/1 is Yang Yang Yang Yin and on the other end 2/4 is yin yin yin/yang.
- No Type is next to itself.
- All Triple Yangs are at the high movement end – except 4/3 which is in the middle.
- All Triple Yins are at the low movement end – except 1/2 which is in the middle.
- The Double-double combinations are next to each other.
- In Carol’s book, It’s Just My Nature, she teaches that Type 1 is the highest movement, so why is Type 3 the highest in this lineup? Because the secondary Type 1 Energy kicks it up. The same concept applies for the Type 4 Energy; the Type 2/4 ends up being lowest movement.
