When practicing yoga, the spine must be straight. Arching the back must be wrong?!

Looking at yoga knowledge and practicing yoga every day, careful Jiaren will find that in every Yoga course, the yoga teacher will take us to practice, there will be exercises involving flexible spine.

Before doing all yoga movements, you must also maintain the correct alignment and extension of the spine, and then carry out in-depth practice.

The spine must be straight? When practicing yoga, the spine must be straight.

Arching the back must be wrong?! Seeing this question, I think the answer given to me by experienced Jia people should not necessarily vary from person to person, or from practice to practice.

Anatomical structure of the spine before answering this question, I would like to share with you the basic anatomical structure of the spine.

The spine includes cervical spine, thoracic spine, lumbar spine, sacrum and coccyx.

The motion angles of each link are as follows: therefore, according to the anatomical structure of the spine, we know that the whole spine can not only flexion / extension, but also lateral flexion and rotation (torsion) And so on…

In yoga, the term “arch back” often refers to the state of spinal flexion.

Arch back is not necessarily wrong.

In fact, in most yoga exercises, in order to avoid excessive lumbar pressure injury, the state of the spine should be in a straight line as far as possible to avoid excessive arch back, which is right.

But this does not mean that all the exercises in yoga, as long as the arch back, must be wrong.

These three common exceptions 01   The purpose of the practitioner is to practice the flexion of the spine, such as the cat pose in yoga and the spinestretch in pilates.

They all require to arch the back as much as possible and present the spine in a large “C” shape.

02   In Yin Yoga, forward bending exercises emphasize the deep relaxation of the spine, so as to relax the central nervous system.

Therefore, most yin yoga postures, such as Caterpillar, butterfly, hanging, dragonfly and so on, seem to be in the state of “arch back”, in fact, they are to completely relax the spine.

03   Repair exercises after a lot of back bending exercises after a lot of back bending exercises, many Jia people will do one or more forward bending “arch back” spine flexion exercises.

It is used to neutralize or avoid the pressure on the spine caused by backward bending exercises, so as to maintain the overall balance of the spine.

Therefore, when practicing yoga, the flexion of the spine is also a practice method of flexible spine.

People must be flexible and not one size fits all.

The following yogis have compiled a set of flexible spine Yoga twisting poses with high-definition illustration.
