How to prepare for relaxation before practicing yoga
Relaxation is a basic method for beginners to learn qigong. It is a kind of static exercise practiced in postures such as lying down, sitting, or standing.
It is also the basic skills that you should master before advanced deep learning methods.
When it comes to relaxation, most people can easily understand that it just relaxes the muscles.
In fact, relaxation requires not just muscle relaxation, but also spiritual relaxation. It can even be said that spiritual relaxation is the guide and foundation for practicing relaxation.
Only when the spirit really relaxes can the muscles achieve good relaxation.
The so-called spiritual relaxation is mainly manifested in two aspects: First, resetting the region’s thoughts unrelated to exercise.
This mainly refers to the fact that when you first learn qigong, your thoughts often fail to achieve unity for a while, and sometimes the more you want to be united, the more complex thoughts will come.
The second is to prevent and eliminate the tension generated during relaxation.
The so-called tension during relaxation means that some people are eager to practice and want to reach their goal as soon as possible. In fact, they are eager to reach the goal. The more they want to relax, the more nervous they become.
One way to eliminate these two states is to focus your thoughts on the relaxed parts of the body one by one, and carefully examine the feeling that each part has when it relaxes.
In this way, it naturally prevents the generation of other distractions and achieves spiritual relaxation.
The so-called muscle relaxation is to be relatively relaxed while maintaining the strength of the exercise.
This relaxation is not slackness, because muscles must have a certain degree of tension to maintain a certain amount of exercise.
However, this kind of muscle tension is not stiff, and it can be just to maintain physical fitness.
This state of muscle is what is commonly referred to as “looseness, tension, and stiffness.”
The following describes the specific method of relaxation: breathing: natural breathing.
Posture: lying, sitting, standing.
Idea: Imagine the muscles of each part of the body in the order described below, try to relax the muscles, and at the same time carefully examine how the muscles feel when they relax.
To relax your muscles: Gently close your eyes, start from the top of your head and imagine and relax one by one.
Top of head, forehead, eyebrow, eyelid, eyeball, nose, lips, lips, jaw, fracture, shoulders, upper arm, elbow, forearm, wrist, two hands, ten fingers, fore chest, two threatens, upper abdomen, lower abdomen, itemRear hips, waist, hips, thighs, knees, calves, joints, and feet.
This relaxation can be repeated many times.
To enhance the relaxation effect, you can meditate on the word “loose” when imagining each place, or play light music at the same time.
Relaxation work has a better effect on eliminating fatigue and restoring physical strength.
It also works well to relieve tension and promote sleep.
