Download Scientific Keys Volume I: The Key Muscles of Hatha Yoga by Ray Long PDF

By Ray Long

Атлас ключевых нагрузок скелетно - мышечной системы в асанах хатха-йоги.
Древняя Йога понимает под "асанами" особые положения тела, сохраняемые более или менее длительное время. Асаны разделяются на две группы: физкультурные и медитационные. Цель "физкультурных" асан ― укрепить тело, сделать его более выносливым, упрочить те или иные токи действия, которые по-санскритски называются "пранами". С точки зрения современной физиологии, под развитием пран можно понимать закрепление желательных кортико-висцеральных рефлексов и торможение нежелательных. Цель медитационных асан ― создать устойчивое положение тела, не мешающее самоуглублению, обеспечивающее правильное кровоснабжение внутренних органов и правильное дыхание. Для обеих групп при выполнении данной асаны считается обязательным сохранение полной неподвижности. Это требование обосновывается необходимостью успокоения гун, без которого, по убеждению йогических писаний, невозможно достичь цели Йоги ― уравновешенности (ср. Гита, II, 48). С точки зрения европейской физиологии, нужно поддерживать статическое напряжение мышц, чтобы создать ровное, бесперебойное течение нервного импульса, направляемого в данную мышцу или группу мышц. При асанах первой группы напряжение должно быть максимальным, при асанах второй группы ― минимальным.
