It’s 6 A.M.: Do you know where your bandhas are? • 24 March 2008

Ways to wake up your uddiyana bandha before practice:

  1. Nauli kriya
  2. Ahem—-
  3. Forward fold on pointe; fingertips to floor; bend the knees; straighten; light up the arches of the feet all the way to the pit of the belly.
  4. Sing something wicked, bluesy, bassy and/or loud. The way Jack White inflects the word hips in the third line of The Denial Twist will take you there, for example. Don't hold back.
