Shape Builder Tool

Here's a way to get there:

Instead of using a full circle (the larger one) use just half. First you will have to convert it to curves (select the large circle then go to Layer menu -> Convert to curves). Then delete one of the nodes to make an half-circle.


From there you can figure the rest. After you have completed the half of the yin yang shape (step four on this image) just duplicate it and flip it in both directions (horizontal and vertical) and place it in position using snapping.

Select the Node Tool and press ALT while you click over the control handles (not the node itself) that control the part of the curvature you want to straight up. They will retract (disappear) and you will get the straight edge.

Hope i'm being clear :) Let me know if you still have trouble.
