Bandha Breakthrough: Weekend Immersion


  • The Space SF 1426 Fillmore St, Suite 203 San Francisco 94115 United States (map)

Have you heard teachers say “engage your bandhas!” Ever wonder what this REALLY means? Like what muscles? Where are they in the body? How do they relate to the core? What will you feel? What are they important? What is too much? If you can’t feel them at all…. how do you turn them on?

At Bandha Breakthrough, you’ll learn the physical realities of the Deep Core plus the energetic experience of the Bandhas. You’ll discover why they are less like “locks” and more like “links” - points of communication for the body.

Day 1: The Deep Core: The Physical Reality of the Bandhas

Learn the Boney Landmarks and the Muscles of the Deep Core. This knowledge simplifies your alignment and the Bandhas occur more spontaneously. PT and Pelvic Floor Specialist Lori Metroka Yu will be joining us for the afternoon.

Day 2: Breath, Prana, & Power: The Energetic Experience of the Bandhas

Yoga never stops with the physical body. In day 2 of the Immersion, you’ll learn how the bandhas influence the energetic body, especially the layer of Prana and Fascia. Develop a core breath that brings levity in poses like Bakasana and Headstand. Use your Bandhas to stabilize your low back and deepen backbends like Camel and Bow.

Only 16 spots available.
