In-Yo – balance mind and body
The IN-YO is a symbol of healing and represents a state of ‘creative harmony’ or ‘dynamic balance’ IN-YO is an optimum state of being, which is why we have it at the centre of our Revs Logo – IN-Yo as the very centre of our philosophy, for all our products, and to our way of working. We aim for harmony and balance to be at the very core of everything we do.
The IN-YO symbol is comprised of the Sun-disc and the Crescent Moon, with the kanji character: tora [or: ko] ‘tiger’ on the left and the kanji character: tatsu [or: ryo] ‘dragon’ on the right.
The tiger is symbolic of Nature, the Earth & physicality; the dragon represents the Cosmos, Heaven & spirituality.
Sun & Moon, Heaven & Earth, the Cosmos & Nature, Physicality & Spirituality – the IN-YO essentially represents the dynamic interplay of all existence – the interplay between hard and soft, tension and relaxation, inhaling and exhaling, activity and rest, waking and sleeping.
The Japanese term IN-YO loosely equates with the Chinese concept of Yin-Yang, the term which perhaps more people are familiar with. In traditional Chinese medicine good health is directly related to the balance between yin and yang qualities. If yin and yang become unbalanced, there is an imbalance or deficiency in the body.
