適當的方式是應人而已的調整體位法的姿勢，首先讓身體來到肌肉和骨骼在最飽和和安全的狀態下停留，讓受傷害的地方得到最大的養分，細胞自然流向求救的部位，給最多的血液和淋巴液體流向需要療癒的地方。我常遇到來找我諮詢身體受傷的同學過渡的伸展或移動受傷的部位，表面上是得到短暫的舒緩，實際上姿勢是處於逃避疼痛而運動，並非因為要全面性的平衡肌肉左右或內外而運動，這不但對長期復原沒有幫助，反而加強了身體偏離中心而移動造成了長期疼痛（chronic pain)。在診斷自己的體位法動作時，必須在先理解身體為何要移動而移動，這需要極大的耐心 （就是受傷時沒有的一項特質），停留在當下並且觀察現況（也是在一般人練習缺乏的特質），帶著不傷害（ahimsa)和誠實（Satya) 的態度移動身體。身體移動在瑜珈裡是必然的，如何有智慧的移動是療癒的重點，不是動作本身，結合了運動學（kinesiology) 和心理學(psychology)在瑜珈哲學（yoga philosophy)的引導下去面對受傷，讓身體能全面性的復原。
When body is in pain, it changes the way you look at practice. Despite the efforts, sometimes the breath becomes irritable, the area where injury occurs became tense and unforgiving. You might experience mood swings, such as depression and indifference, and it’s difficult to manage. At this point, Patience becomes key to your practice. With careful observation and moving the body intelligently allow the body to recover relatively quicker, in the mean time, proper rest is required to prevent the body go into further injuries. Try using breath awareness, pranayama, dhyana(meditation) to assist in the recovering process, so your yoga practice does not confine to just asana, rather a comprehensive way of healing the body and mind. When you are hurt during practice, your mind is impossible to stay quiet. The body has been greatly compromised, and the nervous system is at “fight” mode, so regardless of how deep you go into your asana practice, mind and body are not relaxed and healed effectively.
Rather the more appropriate way is to change the position of your asana individually so the muscles and bones are at an optimal level. The injured area is being supported so the muscles surrounding are not strained or overworked. The healthy cells are then circulated to the injured area to provide necessary healing. The blood flow and the lymphatic fluids are being delivered to the injured areas for it to heal properly. I often encoutered inquires from injured students on how to approach yoga practice. Mostly when I see how they move, there is tendency for them to over work the injured area just because it’s comfortable at that moment. In that instant, the muscular and skeletal movement to avoid pain does temporary provide temporary relief. However, if over work in avoidance ultimately creates more problems. It creates imbalance energy inside and outside of the muscles and bones, prevent the body move towards its core and eventually lead to possible chronic pain.
When assessing body movements and its mechanics during injuries, we must first look at the reason to move as a whole. For that, we need a lot of patience ( which usually lack of during injuries ), allow the body to be a a supported position and observe everything from the pain area to the range of the movement. With the attitude of yoga practice of AHIMSA (nonviolence) and SATYA ( truthfulness ), we must learn to move the body with great amount of intelligence. In using yoga as therapy, body movement is inevitable. However, if we move with the right attitude and not just focusing on the eventual shape of the asana, by using kinesiology and psychology as base, along with the guidance of yoga philosophy, a complete recovery of mind and body is not so far fetch !
