Yoga philosophy | anti postural method

Asana yoga teaches us that every action has two effects, one is positive and the other is negative.

This is why we have to pay attention to our every move.

We must recognize which effects are good and which are bad.

In order to follow this principle in postural practice, we will do some actions to balance the possible adverse effects caused by some more laborious postural methods.

This posture for neutralization is called anti body position.

Take the handstand as an example.

Many people say that they can’t stand not doing a handstand all day, so they get up every morning and do it for ten minutes before going to bed at night.

They feel very comfortable.

However, they usually do not prepare for this posture first, just stand upside down, and then end the practice.

They often ignore the possible negative effects of this posture for a long time.

Although the handstand has the advantage of reversing the general gravity effect of the body, when doing the handstand, the weight of the whole body will also be concentrated on the neck.

Therefore, the small neck that used to support the head has to support the weight of the whole body.

Therefore, after finishing the handstand, it is very important to do an appropriate balance exercise to eliminate the possible negative effects of the handstand (if you don’t do balance exercises, you may feel dizzy and your neck will be stiff for a long time.

If it is more serious, you may also hurt and deform your neck spine and squeeze your nerves.

This injury may eventually lead to severe pain.

Unfortunately, this often happens to those who generalize to the anti body position method, and they often don’t use the anti body position Method to balance the possible impact of inverted posture.

For each posture method, there are several different anti posture methods to choose from, depending on where you feel tight.

After posture practice, as long as a certain part of the body feels tight, you must use the anti posture method to relieve it, and the simplest posture method should be used.

Therefore, a powerful forward flexion must be accompanied by Simple backward flexion.

Because the purpose of practicing anti asana is to return the body to normal state and ensure that we don’t bring pressure to the next asana or daily life.
