Is the conversion between yoga poses cumbersome and not smooth? You should master these skills!

Some people say that in the practice of Yoga asanas, what can better reflect the body awareness than asanas is the conversion between asanas.

What can better reflect the combination of strength and flexibility than asanas is also the conversion between asanas and asanas.

Yoga_in’s conversion from one pose to the next can not only enable you to obtain a larger and more stable range of motion in the process of conversion, but also help you stretch your muscles and strengthen your joints.

At the same time, the conversion of yoga poses can also test the stability of the practitioner’s body and yoga skills.

01 # what are the elements of smooth posture conversion? In fact, most yoga injuries do not occur in asanas, but between asanas.

If the conversion between asanas is fast, not smooth, and the attention is distracted, it will easily cause injury, including the process of entering and exiting asanas# 1.

Keep focused.

In the process of asana conversion, keep focused and pay more attention to what is happening in the body and the current experience.

In the practice of asana conversion, we can stabilize our thoughts by staring at the point, so that we can focus more, rather than doing asana with loose eyes and unconsciousness# 2.

Control the breathing rhythm.

Breathing plays a very important role in posture conversion.

You can consciously relieve the tense parts of the body through balanced breathing, and make the posture conversion smoother through breathing.

For example, when the next movement of posture conversion involves forward bending, you can inhale to expand the front of the body, and then exhale to bring more space to the forward bending body# 3.

Pay attention to the position change of the body.

In the process of pose conversion, you should be deeply and clearly aware of the position change of the body in the pose, and slowly and consciously transition from one pose to the next# 4.

Use reasonable force and energy to support posture conversion, making the process lighter and more stable.

In asana conversion, if you have good perception, you can better adjust the ratio of force and relaxation, and better use your body to support asana conversion.
