The Magic of the Bandhas with Lynsie McKeown

If you practice yoga, you know how good an asana practice can make you feel.  But did you know that the physical practice of yoga is only the first stage? Exploring other aspects of the yoga practice can make you feel even better.

The bandhas are internal muscular ‘locks’ that, with practice, you can intentionally engage as necessary.  Bandhas play an important role on both the physical and spiritual level.  Through engaging the bandhas, we can learn how to direct the flow of energy within the body for greater physical, mental and spiritual health.

The nature of your energy in any given moment shapes your perspective of the world.  By learning to shape your energy, you learn how to shift your perspective and interactions. Your creative impulses will enliven, self-confidence and enthusiasm will improve. You will feel more embodied, more grounded, and more determined, all without having to do extreme physical yoga postures.

In this series we will be utilizing basic physical postures and breath as a way to relate to the bandhas.  Therefore, knowledge of the foundational physical postures is required.

Unlock the magic within and experience your power to positively change.
