Bandha is often one of the first Sanskrit words you hear in a yoga class. Bandha is translated as ‘lock’ or ‘seal’, designed to assist practitioners to retain and direct pranic current and prevent injury.
They aren’t just mysterious energetic seals, but can be anatomically understood as a simultaneous activation of opposing muscle groups around a joint complex. It is possible to create bandhas around each main joint complex of the body to provide stability and support during asana practice.
This three-hour workshop is divided into theory and practice. First we will look into the anatomy of the nine main bandhas, and then apply the techniques into asanas of Ashtanga half primary series.
After the workshop you will be able apply these techniques in your practice to make flexible joints stable and to mobilise stiff joints.
This workshop is targets yoga teachers, yoga teacher trainee and all yoga students who would like to deepen their understanding of their practice.
