What yoga novices want to know

Question: I have always had back pain. Is it not possible to make certain categories, such as “tail insertion”?

  Answer: There are many types of back pain. For example, people who are involved in “disc displacement” can not be used as “elongation sieve type”, but can be used as “single stepped incision type”;People, you ca n’t do a backward bending posture, but you can do a “slightly contracted posture.”

However, for personal health, it is best to seek medical advice first.


Q: Why do I always have a low back when I do “sit”?

  Answer: This problem is actually very common. The reason may be that the hamstrings are not flexible enough or the back muscles are weak.

Foreign studies have shown that the hamstring muscles are too stiff and can easily cause spinal injuries.

And usually used to sit on the sofa in a posture of “end to end”, the muscles of the buttocks will be weakened after a long period of time.

If the muscles lack exercise, they will lose their strength and the back will naturally not be able to stand upright.


Q: It is particularly difficult to do “Lotus Sitting”. Why?

  A: The “Lotus Sitting” is more challenging for men. It may be caused by the pelvis not being loose enough or the muscles outside the thighs not being soft enough.

You must take time to exercise and improve slowly according to your physical condition, and do not take it too fast to avoid injury.


Q: Why are men’s bodies less flexible than women’s when practicing yoga?

  A: This is because female hormones make women softer than men in muscles and joints.


Q: What are the biggest disadvantages of the “upside down”?

  Answer: The biggest disadvantage of practicing “upside down” is that it is practiced off the wall.

Therefore, the arm and shoulder are broken, and the abdomen must be strong to support and balance the entire body.

In addition, the muscles must be strong enough not to be strained, so you should practice more exercises that strengthen these muscles on weekdays.


Question: I have a problem with dialysis of the foot. Every time I do the “correct posture” and balance the foot, I feel extra difficult and tired.

How can it be improved?

  A: Joint ventures are indeed prone to tired feet.

Injuries caused by the disabled’s feet are also common.

This is because the body often unconsciously balances with the position of the feet so that the alignment is distorted.

Therefore, if you have problems with suicide, remember to keep your feet off the ground and stick the sides to the ground.


Q: Can yoga help lose weight?

  A: Any exercise has a weight loss effect. If you want to use yoga to lose weight, you must cooperate with a proper diet and healthy lifestyle habits, and persist.


Q: Will using props to practice yoga reduce the effect or disadvantage of posture?

  Answer: No.

Because the props are only auxiliary, they help to gradually and accurately grasp the various yoga postures, which does not mean that it will make the exercises easier.

On the contrary, if you add props to practice some poses, it will make the practice more difficult and challenging.


Q: How is yoga different from general contraction exercises?
  Answer: The general contraction exercise does not require students to focus on breathing or pay attention to the body’s response and details.
Yoga is different.

If you are doing yoga, thinking about everything and absent-minded, then you are not doing yoga.


Q: I heard that yoga can strengthen muscles, so how is it different from general weightlifting?

  A: Generally, weightlifting exercises focus on training large muscles, but yoga can even train some deep and small muscles, so that they will not be too distributed when they are strong.

Muscle over-distribution often tightens the area too much, which can cause problems such as back pain and cold back, which must be relieved by segmental exercise.

Yoga can also help in this regard.

Therefore yoga can be said to be a comprehensive exercise that can improve strength, endurance, and improve flexibility.


Q: Why can’t I eat before and after practice?

  Answer: Because when eating, the stomach needs enough blood to help digestion.

Practicing yoga is essentially the same as any other exercise, and it should be done before the gastrointestinal work is completed.

You can also eat in half an hour after practicing yoga, so that the body has enough time to recover.


Q: Yoga has a so-called “counterpose”. Is it necessary to do it?

  Answer: The “reverse posture” means that after completing one posture, immediately take another posture in the opposite direction. For example, after making a forward leaning motion, you must do a backward motion to relieve it.

This statement actually varies according to the various factions of yoga, and is not correct or incorrect.


Q: Can yoga be a substitute for medicine?

  Answer: No.

If you are sick, you must see a doctor.

Too many people learn yoga when they have a physical problem, often disappointed because they equate the precautionary and health benefits of yoga with taking medicine to treat illness, which is incorrect.


Q: When should I practice yoga?

  A: It depends on what you want to practice.

You can practice some more strenuous postures such as one-piece when you are physically fit or during the day; you should naturally do more gentleness when tired or before going to bed, which can help eliminate fatigued postures, such as lying down or relaxing.


Q: Why isn’t it appropriate to practice upside down with retinal pigmentation or other eye problems?

  A: Because most upside down poses pressure on the muscles near the eyeballs, if you have eye health problems, you should consult a doctor first.
