Who need to avoid yoga?

Just as yoga is beneficial for health, there may be a good number of reasons you may not be the ideal candidate for yoga. There are some physical inadequacies you need to look for when practicing yoga. Remember that the yoga sessions must be safe and comfortable. So, the moment you note a red flag, refrain from this practice. Here is what we have to say about those who should not do yoga.

  • You run out of breath after every practice session

If you have been with us at Krishna Wellness Yoga & Cultural Center and attend our online yoga classes, you must have noticed how the instructors in here indicate the significance of long inhalation and exhalation during the practice.

Therefore, when doing yoga, you must learn the art of deep breathing. However, if you run gasp for breath or pant every time even after practicing the best yoga techniques, it might be a physical problem that requires better attention. So, try to stop doing yoga until you resolve the breathing problem.

The difficult yoga poses often cause shortness of breath but it is an alarming sign that your body needs to stop.

  • Severe exhaustion

There are a few signs or indications you must not ignore when practicing yoga. For instance, our instructors recommend that yoga does not yield the results you desire and result in fatigue if you do the sessions under too much of exhaustion. Whether it is the work that makes you overtired or a health problem that stops you from doing yoga, you need to listen to your body and know when to stop.

  • Pain in the body

Yoga is a concoction of physical and spiritual aspects but the trained instructors of Krishna Wellness Yoga & Cultural Center ask you to look for painful situations. Keep in mind that yoga is meant to reduce pain over the period but when the practicing sessions cause pain, you need to stop practicing the technique.

  • Losing weight is not all

If losing weight and building muscles is all you need, it is better to refrain from doing yoga as it is a holistic practicing method that requires time before you see the changes in your body. Therefore, physical gain should not be the sole purpose of engaging in yoga.

  • Restless mind

The instructors of Krishna Wellness Yoga & Cultural Center feel that yoga requires extensive practice, so it is through repeated sessions and regular practice that you attain the results. Therefore, the state of mind when practicing yoga needs to be calm and not restless. If you feel impatient about achieving the results, yoga is not your piece of cake.

  • Performance or look

For many people yoga is more about form and less about performance. The aim of joining this yoga studio in Bangalore should not be similar for everyone. So, even if you want to lose weight, it might not come as early as it does in another person. No expert can tell you how much practice of yoga you need to make your body lose weight or stay flexible. Every yoga enthusiast need to focus on the performance and practice to attain the best results.

  • Pain in the wrist

Throughout the practice sessions of yoga at Krishna Wellness Yoga & Cultural Center, there may be some poses that require exhibit strength of the wrist.  However, when your wrists hurt grievously after every session, you might have to pause for a couple of days and engage in some wrist-strengthening exercises before resuming the sessions again.

  • Using the right tools

If you are beginner and the experts ask you to use props when doing the poses, there must be some reasoning behind it. The truth is that we recommend using props to even the most advanced learner of this art. Using proper tools during yoga helps you in aligning the body and prevents the injuries and they make the practice for better. So, if you are not good in using the right tools during yoga or ignore them, stay prepared for more encumbrances.

Listen to your body:

Listening to the indications coming from your body during the yoga sessions should be a priority for everyone. So, you must not push aside those calls and know what makes you feel comfortable during the sessions. So, come and be a part of our yoga studio today and make yoga more productive and beneficial to your health.
