Direct and maximise the flow of energy within the body through the use of bandhas in this introductory class to this ancient yogic technique. This class will take you through the central bandhas used in Kundalini Yoga: Mulabandha, Uddiyana Bandha, Jalandhara Bandha and a combination of all three, Maha Bandha. You will flow through a kriya where you will finish each pose with a bandha to direct the energy within the body.
The bandhas are the locks applied to body areas, which direct the flow of prana and apana. The locks are the basic techniques that allow an equilibrium to be established within the body, having profound effects on the body and mind.
There are three main bandhas:
Neck Lock (Jalandhara Bandha)
Diaphragm Lock (Uddiyana Bandha)
Root Lock (Mulabandha)
When all three locks are applied together it is called:
Great Lock (Maha Bandha)
After practicing series of poses or during practices it is beneficial to contain the blend of the prana and apana, so that the kundalini energy can awaken. Practicing bandhas deepens the effect on your energy so that the maximum effect of the pose is achieved.
