2. How to practice yoga in special period
2.1 menstrual period: static
When a woman is menstruating, her Qi and blood are in a state of relative deficiency, and her body may be tired and weak. During this period, it is not suitable to do more vigorous exercise, but relatively gentle activities.
Yoga includes many categories, some of which are based on movement and some are suitable for silence. When a woman is in her menstrual period, she should try her best to adjust her practice method, choose a relatively “quiet” yoga, or arrange the interval between each tutorial in her menstrual period, so as not to destroy the continuity of yoga exercise and cause damage to the human body.
2.2. Pregnancy: soft
During pregnancy, women can use different forms of relatively gentle yoga exercises, and should not do too much or strong abdominal and lumbar exercises. At this stage, pregnant women need to make it clear that the purpose of practicing yoga is to enhance physical strength and muscle tension, enhance the balance of the body, improve the flexibility and flexibility of the whole muscle tissue, and make their body and mind relatively peaceful, so as to benefit the health of the fetus and themselves.
It should be noted that expectant mothers who have no history of miscarriage and no other diseases can take some gentle exercises that can strengthen their body strength, improve muscle flexibility and tension as long as they feel ready; For pregnant women with a history of habitual abortion, it is recommended to consider yoga practice after consulting professional doctors.
3. What should you pay attention to when practicing yoga
Once you feel abnormal pain in a part of your body during yoga practice, you should immediately stop practicing and clarify the reason.
If swelling occurs, cold compress with ice can be used within 24 hours to reduce bleeding and swelling at the damaged part. It is not advisable to rub the affected part. After 72 hours, hot compress should be used to promote blood circulation and remove stasis.
If you feel severe pain, don’t massage at will, so as to avoid iatrogenic dislocation and injury due to improper force. See a doctor in time.
Don’t eat within an hour before and after yoga, and try to avoid practicing within two hours after dinner.
Don’t do difficult movements at the beginning to avoid sports injury. Difficult movements should not be practiced half a year after the operation or during the physiological period of women. Patients with hypertension, asthma and pregnant women can only do simple movements.
It is better to be barefoot and wear loose and comfortable so that your body can move freely. Don’t laugh or talk while practicing. Breathe with concentration. Keep breathing regularly and deeply, which helps your body relax.
