What Are The Bandhas?

Written by 

Have you ever heard the word "bandha" mentioned in a yoga class? In sanskrit, bandha means to lock, tighten, or hold. Energetically, these "locks" or areas of tightening help the body to direct the flow of prana (flow of energy into the body) and apana (flow of energy out of the body). Physically, the locking of the bandhas helps keep proper alignment and protection of the spine during meditation and yoga. When you can master these locks on both the outside (postures) and inside (concentration, breath, clear mind), you can regulate and control all your hormonal, metabolic, digestive, and sexual systems. Let's explore the bandhas.
