Why unlock the “locks”? Bandhas are often practiced in hatha yoga as a physical, muscular engagement. Often we learn to engage bandhas without first exploring how to release held tensions, which may hold us in a “locked” or contracted state. These days explore a range of movements and meditations to enable you to “abandha”, to release the prana and direct its flow.
The course combines a scientific understanding of anatomy with the experiential anatomy of the yogis, through an in depth study of the pelvis, diaphragm and throat. We will also understand how the bandhas have a profound effect on the nervous system. This includes a study of the original tantra texts and Upanishads which describe the prana and bandpass and techniques from a range of movement traditions to release tension and restore to the body.
You can book this course on its own or as part of our Advanced 300-hour teacher training.
