Cultivating the Master Lock

In this sequence, you’ll explore the role bandhas (locks) play in guiding and building your energy, activating the subtle body, and calming the mind. You’ll practice jalandhara bandha (throat lock), mula bandha (root lock), and uddiyana bandha (upward lifting lock) in a step-by-step practice, observing the subtleties and interplay of all the bandhas as you move. 

The experience concludes with a deeper exploration of jalandhara bandha, which Rod says is the “master lock” as it controls all of the locks, followed by a guided savasana and a bandha-focused pranayama practice.
