An introduction to the bandhas - interior body locks used in yoga.
There are three bandhas - Mula Bandha, Uddiyana Bandha and Jhalandara
Bandha. Each bandha is a lock, meaning a closing off of part of the
interior body. These locks are used in various pranayama and asana
practices to tone, cleanse and energize the interior body and organs.
When all three bandhas are activated at the same time, it is called Maha
Bandha, the great lock.
