inner focus: mastering the bandhas

The bandhas or locks serve to harness pranic energy within the central channel or sushumna. Once there, the upper and lower winds can join at the heart.  

 

This brings about a dissolution of the elemental structure of our physical bodies, and allows us a glimpse of a body unfettered by space and time.

 

The bandhas are used extensively in pranayama and asana practices to induce kevala kumbhaka - a spontaneous suspension of the breath.  Watch here how mastery of uddiyana bandha can lead to mastery of nauli - one of the shatkarmas.

 

This 6 hour workshop allows gradual mastery of the three bandhas. Class numbers will be kept low to allow for individual attention.
