2. Benefits of Yoga
2.1. Prevention of obesity
When the weather turns cold, many people “have a big appetite” and unknowingly take in too many calories. Research shows that the energy required in winter is not much different from that in other seasons. Yoga stimulates our glands, adjusts our endocrine, increases our heat production capacity, helps us to better control our appetite and prevent our body from getting fat by squeezing through various postures of bending forward, leaning back and twisting left and right.
Yoga reduces facial wrinkles and produces a natural “skin pulling” effect. Yoga handstand posture can often restore the original color of gray hair and delay the phenomenon of gray hair. This is because handstand increases the amount of blood flowing to the hair follicles in the scalp. This posture increases the elasticity of the muscles, removes the pressure of the blood vessels and nerves in the muscles, and allows more blood to flow to the scalp muscles. In other words, hair follicles get more nutrition and produce more healthy hair.
2.3 release pressure
Regular yoga practice can make the body, mind and spirit more calm, promote the function of the immune system, and discharge the toxins in the body caused by stress. Many students believe that yoga is a perfect cure after a hard day’s work. Yoga can eliminate fatigue and calm the mind. Make people keep a comfortable and quiet state and fully enjoy life.
3. The best time to practice yoga
3.1. The best time is after getting up in the morning and before breakfast, in a quiet environment. At this time, the body is awakened by impurity removal. Practicing yoga can wake up the sleeping body, stimulate the vitality of the body and accelerate metabolism.
3.2 from 5 pm to 8 pm in the evening. At this time, the body has been running for a whole day and is in a relatively tired state. Practicing yoga at this time can adjust the state of the body, promote endocrine balance and make the heart full of strength.
What don’t you do after yoga
1. Gluttony for cold drinks
After yoga exercise, the digestive system of the human body is still in a state of inhibition, and the digestive function is low at this time. If you eat some cold drinks in order to be cool and quench your thirst for a while, it is easy to cause stomach cramps, abdominal pain and diarrhea, and induce gastrointestinal diseases.
2. Squat and rest
If you squat down to rest after practicing a lot of yoga moves, it will hinder the blood flow of the lower limbs, affect the blood circulation, and further deepen the fatigue of the body. In serious cases, it will also produce shock.
3. Take a bath immediately
When we practice yoga, the blood flowing to the muscles increases, and the heart rate increases. After yoga, this symptom will last for a period of time. If you take a hot bath immediately, it will lead to insufficient blood flow to other important organs. If the blood supply to the heart and brain is insufficient, it will lead to dizziness and weakness.
If you take a cold bath after yoga, it will be more harmful to your body. Because when we practice yoga, our body’s metabolism will accelerate, the subcutaneous blood vessels will expand, and then we will sweat a lot. If you take a cold bath immediately after yoga, a large amount of heat in your body will not be released, forming internal heat and external cold, destroying the balance of the human body, and it is easy to get sick.
