[实用英语]      来源:

 When you hear the word “yoga,” do you think of a person with his legs twisted up like a pretzel? If so, it may seem like yoga is very complicated or just for adults. Not true!Kids and teens can do yoga for the same reasons grown-ups do: because it feels good to stretchout your body, slow down your breathing, and relax your mind. Yoga can help you feel calmer when life is busy and stressful.






  What You Need






  Any time you start a new exercise routine it's a good idea to check with a parent. A yoga class can be a GREat way to get started because the instructor can teach you how to get into the poses.Find a large enough space with few distractions. No TV or people, if possible. Wear comfortable workout clothes and no shoes or socks. A yoga matcan be helpful because it cushionsa bit and keeps your feet from slipping. Yoga should not hurt, so go slow and ease into position. Go only as far as you comfortablycan.






  Why Yoga for Stress?






  When you get stressed or nervous, many things can help you feel better. Talking with someone—a parent or friend—is a GREat idea because they can help you figure out what's wrong and start coming up with solutions.In addition, you can easestress through exercise. You probably know exercise is good for your health, but it's also a proven way to put you in a better mood. So it makes sense that yoga is a favorite activity among people who want to feel stronger and more relaxed.Yoga includes a lot of stretching, but that's not all—yoga also focuses on breathing and meditation,which means thinking calm thoughts. Practicing yoga is a chance to learn stretching/breathing/thinking skills that you can use to calm yourself down the next time you feel worried. In other words, yoga can help your body stay looseand relaxed when things heat up!



  感到有压力或紧张的时候,很多事情可以让你放松下来。跟家长或朋友聊聊就是一个不错的方法,因为他们可以帮你发现问题所在,找出解决办法。另外,你还可以通过sports/ target=_blank class=infotextkey>体育锻炼减轻压力。你也许知道sports/ target=_blank class=infotextkey>体育锻炼对身体有好处,但人们已经证实运动还可以令人心情更加舒畅。顺理成章,瑜伽备受那些希望变得更强壮和放松下来的人士喜爱。瑜伽包含大量伸展动作,但它远不止如此——瑜伽还注重呼吸和冥想,也就是冷静思考。练习瑜伽让你有机会学习伸展、呼吸以及思考的技巧。下次当你感到忧虑的时候,便可以通过这些技巧使自己镇静下来。换句话说,在事情一团糟的时候,瑜伽能够让你的身体保持舒展放松。



  Think good Thoughts






  Meditation is the first part of a stress-relievingyoga routine. Meditation means being calm, quiet, and focused. Some people call this “feeling centered.” When you're feeling centered, you can do your best in stressful situations such as taking a test or working through a disaGREement with a friend. Try these meditation exercises:Take a yoga vacation: Find a quiet, private place, like your bedroom. Sit in a comfortable position and close your eyes. Imagine a place where you feel safe and relaxed. Is it your best friend's backyard?Your grandma's house? Camping in the woods? Imagine yourself in this place for three to five minutes. You'll feel much calmer after your “yoga vacation.”Positive pictures: When you're feeling stressed about a big test or game, it can help to imagine it going really well. Sit in a comfortable position and close your eyes. Picture yourself feeling prepared for your test or kicking the winning goal in soccer. Of course, positive pictures can't take the place of actual preparation, but they can help you feel more confident.






  Breathe Deep






  On one hand, you already know how to breathe. You're doing it right now! But learning how to breathe in yoga practice can help you notice how your breathing changes when you're anxious or upset. Often, when you start to feel nervous or uncomfortable, your breathing may get faster and you might not breathe as deeply. Once you tune in to your breath, you can try belly breathing.






  Get Up and Move!






  There are many different yoga poses. Some can help you stretch the neck, shoulders and back, which are most likely to get tense when you are nervous or stressed. Try these two yoga poses when you want to de-stress yourself:Surprise/Sourpuss: Open your mouth wide and bugout your eyes, then close your eyes very tightly and puckeryour lips.Alternateback and forth between “surprise” and “sourpuss.” Do this while you're studying to help loosen up your face and jaw, which can get really tense while you're studying. If you have a study partner, make a game of it! Who can make the silliest face? Shoulder gymnastics: Do a few gentle shoulder and neck rolls right before a test to keep your shoulders nice and loose. You can even do them during a test if you need a refreshing break.






  Have Fun with Yoga






  Yoga can help you in serious ways, but it also can be a lot of fun. You can smile during yoga, and even laugh, which is a GREat stress reliever too. Yoga can be done alone or with friends. And you can do it at home, at a yoga studio, or in the park.We'll end with a special SanskritGREeting—“namaste.” It's traditionally said at the end of a yoga practice and it means the light inside of me bows to the light inside of you. Namaste.
