Yoga for Bandhas


Bandhas are subtle energy locks in the body that are commonly used in yoga to control and direct the flow of prana (life force energy). There are three main bandhas in yoga: Mula Bandha, Uddiyana Bandha, and Jalandhara Bandha.

Here are some yoga poses that can help activate and strengthen the bandhas:

  1. Mula Bandha (Root Lock):
  • Tadasana (Mountain Pose)
  • Vrksasana (Tree Pose)
  • Utkatasana (Chair Pose)
  • Malasana (Garland Pose)
  • Navasana (Boat Pose)
  1. Uddiyana Bandha (Abdominal Lock):
  • Adho Mukha Svanasana (Downward-Facing Dog)
  • Bhujangasana (Cobra Pose)
  • Dhanurasana (Bow Pose)
  • Paschimottanasana (Seated Forward Bend)
  • Ustrasana (Camel Pose)
  1. Jalandhara Bandha (Chin Lock):
  • Padmasana (Lotus Pose)
  • Sukhasana (Easy Pose)
  • Ardha Matsyendrasana (Half Lord of the Fishes Pose)
  • Setu Bandhasana (Bridge Pose)
  • Sarvangasana (Shoulder Stand)

It's important to note that bandhas should be practiced under the guidance of an experienced yoga teacher to ensure proper technique and prevent injury. In addition to these poses, there are also specific breathing techniques (pranayama) that can be used to activate the bandhas, such as Ujjayi breath and Nadi Shodhana (Alternate Nostril Breathing).
