REDEFINING THE BANDHAS

VIRUAL WORKSHOP

with Andrea Shelton

Have you been in a yoga class and been told to engage those mysterious bandhas? Has it been a bit unclear what the teacher means?

 

This online workshop with Andi will help to clear up what the bandhas are from an anatomical perspective. This will include a snazzy presentation acquainting you with your bandha anatomy (anatomy newbies more than welcome!). We will also include a 60 minute yoga-biomechanics class designed to give you a practical, experiential understanding of how to use the anatomy of the bandhas to help support your practice.

 

We will discuss: Mula Bandha + pelvic floor muscles, Uddiyana-Bandha + TVA, and Jalandhara Bandha + deep neck flexors. Come prepared to move, learn a little anatomy, and refine your yoga practice!
