The yoga girl summed up the nine little knowledge answers that newcomers often encounter when practicing yoga. I hope to help all the yoga people.
Q: I want to lose weight through yoga. How can I do it to have an effect?
A: A lot of people lost 10 pounds through yoga in a month. But this is inseparable from effective practice, reasonable diet and healthy living habits. If you want to lose weight in the shortest possible time, it is a great solution to combine aerobics and yoga with running and swimming. Running and swimming can fully consume the body’s heat, and then further strengthen the exercise effect through yoga, shape the body, avoid muscle legs and uneven shape. At the same time with a healthy diet and work, you will soon be able to get a beautiful figure and sunshine. Of course, if you don’t have a lot of time, you can get the ideal result by practicing yoga for about 1 hour a day.
02, Q: Is it better to practice yoga several times a week? How long is it each time?
A: Yoga is a way of life, she is reflected in all aspects of life. For physical exercise, if you can practice every day, it is best to practice for more than 30 minutes each time. If you are busy, you should practice at least twice a week, each time between 1-2 hours, in order to ensure the effect of the exercise.
03, Q: I practiced the yoga elementary course. I have a sore feeling on my back and thighs. Is it better to continue practicing or rest for a few days?
A: It is a common phenomenon for beginners to have muscle soreness or joint pain during initial yoga. It is mainly due to insufficient oxygen supply in the body, which causes glucose glycolysis to produce a large amount of lactic acid. As long as it is not particularly sharp pain, you can practice it. Taking the softer primary yoga as the main practice content, and by adjusting the breathing, increasing the oxygen in the body, it can relieve the pain. The practice does not require standards, but a steady breathing and relaxation mood is crucial.
04, Q: When is the best time to practice yoga?
A: It is the best practice time for yoga in the morning and before breakfast, followed by the evening. It can be done at other times, but it should be done after fasting or after complete digestion. For meditation, you can choose to practice at night or around 4am. In fact, yoga can be practiced at any time of the day. If you don’t have a long time to concentrate on practice, you can also divide the exercise into several paragraphs or even ten paragraphs. In five minutes, you can practice one or two yoga postures or short-term adjustments and meditations. It is also equivalent to a yoga class.
05, Q: Why should I keep an empty stomach before practice? What if I am hungry?
A: It is best to keep an empty stomach before practicing yoga, because many postures will squeeze into your stomach during practice, which may cause dizziness, nausea, and even vomiting. Moreover, the blood of the body is concentrated on local muscles or organs during exercise, which affects the digestion and absorption of food and increases the burden on the heart. If you feel hungry, you can eat a small amount of easily digestible food one to two hours before the practice, so as to alleviate the hunger in practice.
06, Q: Can you take a bath immediately after yoga practice?
A: Like many sports, you can’t take a bath immediately after practicing. Because the body is still extremely excited when the exercise is finished, if the bath is taken immediately, the blood vessels will expand, the blood volume will increase, the heart burden will be aggravated, and the body will be slightly warm after practicing yoga. The sweat glands will secrete a skin-friendly substance on the skin surface. So don’t take a bath right away. After half an hour, you should take a bath after your heart beats back to normal.
07, Q: Can you practice yoga during menstruation?
A: You can practice. As long as there is a certain degree of selectivity, there is no problem. During menstruation, it helps to stabilize the mood, relieve dysmenorrhea, irregular menstruation and other symptoms. At the same time, it is best to practice yoga classes such as pranayama and meditation. If you choose posture training, be careful not to do those exercises that are inverted, flipped, stretched, or over-squeezed. Do not practice excessive energy consumption. In short, don’t continue practicing if you feel uncomfortable.
08, Q: Can you practice yoga during pregnancy? What should I pay attention to?
A : It is not suitable for practicing yoga in the early stage of pregnancy and pre-pregnancy. In the middle of pregnancy, you can carry out simple exercises with the permission of a doctor, such as cardio practice, meditation or meditation, but it must be based on personal needs and comfort. If you have any discomfort, please stop practicing immediately. In addition, please note that it is best not to do too much reversal during practice.
09, Q: Can men practice yoga?
A: Yoga is a kind of exercise that is both physical and mental. Both men and women are suitable. Therefore, it is not exclusive to women. If confused by the flexibility of the surface of yoga action, it is definitely a loss for many men. Because yoga moves are more soothing, the rhythm is slower, and the flexibility is relatively high. At the same time, yoga emphasizes the way of breathing and the body to calm down. Generally speaking, men’s flexibility is not as good as that of women, so it is not very fast at the beginning of the introduction. However, as the practice progresses, it is found that men’s benefits from yoga may be more due to the increase in physical toughness, and their physical strength. Will get better and the mind will be more peaceful.
