The breath is a gateway to enter into you. Students develop better into their own practice of pranayama by scouring the entire body through pranic (breath) energy. Students gain the aptitude to teach their pranayama in a creative way. Here students learn how to teach advanced pranayama and pranic energy handling techniques, bandhas, and mudras.
Mudras and bandhas knowledge helps to understand the pranayama more detailedly. The Sanskrit word (mudra) means a seal or a lock. It denotes positions which shut the body aditus, where the fingers are held together with special hand gestures. Mudras require a conjunction of breath with special postures of body and fingers to incite various energy centers and meticulous tract in the body.
“Bandha” means to hold or lock in the Sanskrit language. It also denotes to a posture in which certain organs or parts of the body hold, braced and controlled. The energy flux to a specific domain of the body is interrupted during bandha practice.
