Uddiyana Bandha: The Most Powerful Lock Unlocked

May 23, 2016    BY Luke Ketterhagen

Uddiyana bandha (upward flying lock) is a complex yogic practice, and its instruction often varies by teacher. In this tutorial, Luke explains some common perspectives about "unlocking" uddiyana bandha. He will teach you how to engage this bandha during asana practice, as well as how to understand and experience it from a classical hatha perspective that centers more on diaphragmatic breathing.

Audio and video downloads are available for Digital Members.
