Practicing Asanas: Slow or Fast Mode

Asanas (in Sanskrit meaning ‘convenient positions of the body’), the physical exercises used within the Hatha Yoga system, first of all affect the musculoskeletal system that performs the locomotor functions, moving and balancing the body within the space. The condition and the function of bones, muscles, ligaments and joints is subject to monitoring and control from the central nervous system, which peripheral part is composed by a large amount of various types of receptors. These are the muscles spindles in muscles, the Golgi tendon spindles in ligaments, and another 4-5 types of receptors that they figure out in joints. Thus, we have an extensive receptor field, «the body of the muscular sense» that provides adaptive response of the organism to the environment.
