初学高温瑜伽要注意哪些问题?_英语新闻

Maybe you need something to warm you up now that there’s a chill in the air. Maybe you’ve heard that hot yoga is relaxing. Or maybe you want to try something that’s challenging and yet, in some ways, easier: your muscles are more flexible when they’re warm. Welcome to hot yoga.

在这个有些寒冷的天气里,你可能需要让自己热起来。也许你听过高温瑜伽很舒服,或者你想在某些比较简单的方面尝试一些很有挑战性的事情,那么欢迎加入高温瑜伽,在温暖的环境下,你的肌肉会更放松!

If you haven’t heard of hot yoga, you might think I’m making it up. I promise I’m not. It’s a yoga class done in a studio that’s been heated to—in the case of Bikram, the original hot yoga—105 degrees Fahrenheit.

如果你从未听过高温瑜伽,会以为我在瞎扯,我保证我没有。这是一个比克拉姆式瑜伽工作室的瑜伽课结束后的场景,里面的温度一般有105华氏度。

You may have done yoga before, but if hot yoga is new to you, the usual beginner advice still applies: tell the instructor you’re new, don’t be afraid to ask questions before class, and feel free to sit out the harder moves if you truly need a break.

你也许之前做过瑜伽,但是高温瑜伽对你来说是新的,新人刚开始练习建议这样做:告诉你的导师,你刚接触高温瑜伽,课前别害怕问问题,做难度更大的动作时保持坐姿自然,除非你真的需要休息一会。

Here are some of the things I learned my first time:

这是我第一次上课时所了解到的东西。

People wear bikinis. You’re free to wear anything you like, but it gets really hot in that room. Some people in my class wore leggings and some wore shirts, but nobody wore both. I would say the average amount of clothing was a pair of shorts and a sports bra.

人们穿比基尼,你随便穿什么你想穿的,但是通常教室里非常热。我课上的一些人会穿紧身裤或者裙子,但是没有人两者都穿,平均来看都是穿着一双鞋和一件运动内衣。

It’s the same poses every time. Bikram yoga uses a very specific sequence of poses in a 90 minute class. (This isn’t true of every type of hot yoga, though.) Once you’ve done a few classes, it gets a lot easier to follow along.

每次摆出相同的姿势,比克拉姆式瑜伽在90分钟使用一系列特殊的姿势,(尽管,不是每种姿势都是高温瑜伽),一旦你做完这个课程,你接下来就可以很容易的自学了。

You will sweat like you have never sweated before. You’ll need a large towel to put on top of your mat, or else it turns into a slip ‘n’ slide. Plan on showering afterward, which might involve awkward communal showers.

你会感觉像从来没有出过汗一样!你需要把一条大浴巾放在瑜伽垫上,或者将它打成一个“n”字形的活结。也许需要准备去洗一个相当令人尴尬的集体澡。

Now it’s time for you to tell us your thoughts on hot yoga. If you’re a devotee, what do you think is most important for beginners to know? And if you’re thinking about trying it, what questions do you have?

现在是时候告诉我们你对高温瑜伽的想法了,如果你热爱,你觉得知道什么对于初学者来说最重要,如果你想尝试它,你有什么问题呢?
