I often hear a lot of doubts: why is the effect of my yoga not as good as others? How can I get hurt so easily in yoga In fact, most of these problems are caused by our bad habits in yoga.
Today, let’s take a look at the 10 most common questions among Yoga people.
If you have something to change, you will be encouraged if you don’t.
01 eager to become a weight-loss crazy to practice yoga, many people choose to practice yoga, the first consideration is that practicing yoga can lose weight, the mentality is eager for quick success and instant benefit, they want to practice more and cheaper, and hope to see the effect of practice immediately, but they don’t know that this is dangerous.
When they are not strong at the beginning of practice, they accumulate fatigue every day, which is easy to cause sports injury.
These people only see one side of yoga, but ignore the essence of Yoga – a peaceful state of mind.
Yoga practitioners should comprehensively improve themselves from three aspects: body, mind and spirit.
If you put your eyes on yoga, you will not only reduce the physical changes, but also get the real physical changes.
If you put your eyes away from yoga, you will get the real physical changes.
02 yoga postures overemphasize backward bending, which is a very dangerous action.
In the long run, the soft tissue between the spine will be damaged, and the spine will only develop in one direction, and the other directions will be limited.
There are many sections of the spine.
Before learning to control the body, you often practice how to reach the section that is easiest to bend.
You still haven’t practiced other sections of the spine.
You can imagine the fate of that poor section of the spine.
03 abdominal relaxation in the process of practicing yoga, correct breathing requires not only breathing air into the chest area, but also feeling the expansion and adduction of ribs.
In each breath, you can use your abdominal muscles to press your navel against your spine.
As you inhale, fill your chest with air and keep your abs flat.
Using abdominal muscles in breathing can not only help you breathe correctly, but also protect your waist from pain or injury.
Unnecessary tension, tight toes, shrugged shoulders and white joints, we can’t see any meaning of relaxation at all, can we? For some strong postures, you need to practice to start your whole body strength and concentrate, and adhere to the time of five breaths, but please remember to avoid unnecessary tension during this period.
To consciously relax your muscles, you don’t need to be too nervous.
Believe in yourself, you can do it! 05 reckless muscle stretching yoga requires us to pay attention to breathing and experience inner happiness.
However, if your character contains some competitive potential, you may have an uncontrollable desire to surpass others and try to keep consistent with their practice posture.
This is likely to strain your muscles.
When practicing, just keep it within your maximum bearing range.
You can imitate the posture of others, but don’t hurt your muscles.
06 want to do a good job of postural method and save effort.
Many postural methods are hard to practice, hands and feet tremble, and the body doesn’t listen to orders.
Yoga lovers worry about their ugly posture and hope to save some energy to go home for rest.
As a result, the body naturally moves towards the direction of saving effort during practice.
It looks like it has reached the standard.
In fact, many places are not solid in order to save effort.
Over time, the joints of the body will bear a lot of unnecessary pressure.
It is not only difficult to enjoy the effects of yoga, but also has many problems.
Since yoga is for your health, you should practice hard and happily.
Sweat is also one of the feelings of achievement.
You should not think about how to save effort.
Instead, you should think about how to be more tired while doing actions, so as to find out where your body is weak and strengthen exercise.
07 too much emphasis on stretching is a good physical activity.
Moderate stretching can not only keep the body tissue young and energetic, but also promote the circulation of Qi and blood.
However, many people think that yoga is an intense stretching exercise, which is of course wrong.
Yoga does contain a lot of stretching movements, but it is only one of many elements.
Instead, they mistakenly think that yoga is a stretching person.
When practicing, they stretch their body excessively and marathon their body ligaments without knowing it.
On the contrary, they are prone to pain here and there all day, and they don’t know the reason.
So don’t practice in one direction.
Find a good teacher to practice step by step and let the body develop in a balanced way.
08 there is too much sweat during practice.
The ancients sent an important warning to yoga, that is, never blow the wind before and after exercise.
When the sweat is blown to the wind when the pores open, it will be vulnerable to wind and cold invasion.
If it is a healthy body, the pores will be closed immediately to protect the body.
The sweat under the skin will spread to other pipes if it is not discharged.
This sweat is the sewage of the body, not the purified water, Sewage seeps into cells, and if it is not discharged out of the body, it will become the root cause of latent diseases.
09 before yoga, you must eat on an empty stomach immediately after practice.
It is correct to eat on an empty stomach before Yoga – if you are a vegetarian, you’d better practice after 2.5 to 3 hours; If you eat meat, you’d better practice after 3 and a half hours to 4 hours.
However, eating a little fruit or drinking a glass of milk is OK, especially for practitioners with low blood sugar, they need to add a little sugar before practice.
It’s wrong to eat immediately after practice.
It’s best to wait 30 minutes before eating.
I think the core of yoga is to exercise postures.
Yoga postures are only a small part of yoga, and yoga meditation and breathing are the most important.
And Yoga should last for a long time.
The good effect is not produced in one hour, but continues to the other 23 hours.
Therefore, the far-reaching impact of yoga is to help people develop healthy and good living habits.
There is nothing wrong with paying attention to posture.
At the same time, we should also pay attention to and give consideration to breathing and meditation.
Yoga postures that ignore breathing and meditation will eventually become acrobatics..
