The concept of alignment in Yoga was brought in to practice by Guruji BKS Iyengar. Just like a building needs very particular arrangements of corners and angles. Our body also needs proper arrangements of joints, muscles and ligaments.
Bandha is a practice in yoga known as “lock, hold, or bind” in Sanskrit. It is a form of “energetic lock” where practitioners block the flow of blood or ‘prana’ (life force) in certain parts of the body to improve the flow of energies and for optimal health.
The work of Bandhas during the Gokul practice taps into these 3 mental faculties of Thinking, Feeling and Willing. Refine your awareness of the deeper layer of your being. Thereby, finding the true aim of Yoga: Self-realization.
