After writing so many posts about David Kibbe’s Metamorphosis, I think it’s time for me to reveal something that has been on my mind for a while – my personal story of how I got to know and love this system.

The Meaning of Yin and Yang in Kibbe System

Explanation of Yin and Yang balance in Kibbe’s body type system that’s easy to understand

I notice a great deal of confusion about Kibbe’s body type system, especially when it comes to Yin and Yang.
