Vinyasa Bhanda Drishti

Vinyasa means breath syncronized movement. The breath, called Ujjaiy, is the heart of this Yoga and links one asana to the next one. The Ujjaiy breath is obtained through closing partially the glottis and the constant control of the abdominal muscle belt. Both these “locks” have to be maintained constantly during the performing of the practice. By synchronising breathing with movement and practising Mula and Uddiyana Bhandas, the locks, an intense internal heat is produced.

Bhanda means lock, constant abdominal and pelvic control, control that onblocks the pranic energy and helps the breathing. This control, together with the ujjaiy breathing, induces the body temperature to rise in a way that helps the blood detoxification and fluidification, freeing the pranic energy. This heat purifies muscles and organs, expelling unwanted toxins as well as releasing beneficial hormones and mineral salts. The breath rules the vinyasa and guarantees a good blood circulation, the final result is a light and strong body.

Each posture concentrates the look, Drishti, towards a specific body spot, to makes it easier for the breathing flow to calm the mind.
