Yoga is no doubt excellent for health, but we should care for it. Here are four most Dangerous Yoga Poses Be care full during these poses as little carelessness can harm yourself and whole body.
Celebrity yoga trainer and best-selling author of “Yoga for Inner Strength” Mandy Ingber says.
“People can get injured reaching for the toilet paper, so it’s not as if you need to be doing an advanced pose to throw something out,” “Usually, injuries are an accumulation of patterns created in the body over time. We can’t avoid every injury.”
One more general way that people injure themselves during yoga—as with most other types of exercise—is simply by pushing too hard,
Jessica Stickler and trainer at Jivamukti NYC says.
“I see plenty of type-A folks who are also so-called ‘weekend warriors’ who want to push, push, push in every pose,” Stickler says.
“We have to quiet that urge to squeeze every last drop of sweat from our practice, and remember that yoga calls on us to find a way to work hard from that place of profound inner peace,” she adds.
That’s particularly true if you’re attempting any of the following poses, which are known for causing the most injuries.
1. Shoulder Stand
No doubt this pose has many benefits as better thyroid and metabolism regulation. Unluckily, the posture also compresses the spine and puts a lot of weight on the neck. Don’t try this pose if you have high blood pressure or any neck problems, and if you attempt it, be sure not to move your neck during the pose (and proceed with caution).
“I think because the pose is often taught towards the end of a practice when people may already be tired or ready for relaxation, or perhaps because teachers are not taking the time to learn the pose fully, it seems that there is a lot of misunderstanding about how to safely practice this one,”
2. Standing Forward Bend
Standing Forward Bend poses also recognized as Uttanasana; it is just amazing for opening up hamstrings, calves, and hips, as it apparently stimulates the liver and kidneys—but if you force yourself ahead it can quickly undo all that good stuff, particularly if you have any pre-existing aches and pains.
“If you have a back issue, forward flexing can do more harm than good,”
“Don’t force yourself: bend your knees; Use props.” Or, as Ingber recommends, stretch out your hamstring while lying on your backside, utilizing a support like a strap.
3. Bound Triangle Pose
Triangle pose is no doubt magnificent for health but adjustment of the triangle pose that involves grasping the hands at the back, the posture can easily result in hamstring injuries—especially if “people are too eager to get their leg straight,” Stickler says. The most excellent way is to make this pose by a trainer direction
Ingber says, “Ask questions,” she says. “Get tips and share information.”
4. Camel Pose
Camel poses relieve you from tiredness and anxiety—but it can be the reason of real pain in the neck, So if you’re going to trying this pose, start gradually and be sure to prep your body with prior poses to warm up your spine.
“An intense back bend is not the greatest idea,”
“The spine tends to be unevenly flexible and will take the pressure more in one area than another,”
“Sequencing is essential in yoga,”
“Listen to your body instead of your mind or ego. Don’t push yourself to the point of strain.”
“The body is resilient and can bounce back from most injuries,”
So be care full while practicing these yoga poses.
