Bandhas — find your roots and wings

Once again, you’ve got a chance to study with Tim Miller and raise money for a good cause.

Every year (at least), Tim runs a workshop with all the proceeds going to the Sean O’Shea Foundation. More about it here, and our past posts on it here.

This time around, the workshop is scheduled for 1:30 to 4 p.m. on April 11, at the Ashtanga Yoga Center of course. This year’s is on “Roots and Wings: The Mysterious and Elusive Bandhas.”

Aren’t they though? Here’s a little about the workshop:

In this workshop we will examine the bandhas from different perspective — physical, energic, and mental — and experience how the application of mula and uddhiyana bandha can greatly increase our level of concentration, enhance our breathing capacity, increase of our range of motion, and add stability, comfort, and lightness in our asana practice…. Pattabhi Jois used to say that when the bandhas are engaged, “Good sound is coming,” so our final application of the bandhas will be in the chanting of mantra, including the Mahamantra — the Hanuman Chalisa.
