INTEGRATE INTERNAL HOLDS (Bandhas) WITH BREATHING WHEN YOU STRETCH & MAKE LOVE

by Sasha Lessin, Ph.D.

Nude or comfortably dressed, on a thick rug or pad, kneel or sit up straight. Face a mirror and notice how your spine and ribs shift as you expand and contract your lungs. Imagine life’s like breath; you live as you breathe.

Inhale: Breathe in through your nose as you look in your own mirrored eyes. As you inhale, lower your chin slightly and lift the back of your skull. Stretch the back of your neck. Imagine your crown reaches up to the sun or a star. Your skull tugs your top neck bone, the atlas, heavenward. The atlas in turn stretches the axis, the bone below it, up. Axis pulls up the neck bone beneath it. In turn stretch each cervical, thoracic, lumbar and sacral vertebra up.

Lift your ribs and suck air through your nostrils into your lungs. Direct the air first to the top of your lungs, your upper chest. Then let the tops of your lungs press your middle ribs wider. Fill the space between your shoulder blades with air. Pull your shoulder blades back toward each other. Keep your belly firm as air fills your lower lungs. Still inhaling, lower your diaphragm toward your pelvis. As you complete inhaling, let your diaphragm drop. Curl your tailbone back toward the space behind you.

As you assume chakra yoga postures, you inhale whenever you lift your arms, expand your chest or arch your back. Inhale when you stretch into backward bends or extension positions. Inhale also when you straighten from twists or side-bends.

Exhale: As you breathe out, curl your tail bone forward (to the front of you) and upward--toward your navel--as you pull the front of your sit-bones into the earth. Draw each successive backbone–sacrum to atlas–down toward the earth between your hips. Tighten the muscles of your perineum, then tighten your belly muscles and draw your navel in toward the spine. Ribs, chest and shoulder blades relax downward as your diaphragm rises and pushes air out of the bottom of your lungs.

Experience air flow up and out of your lungs. Imagine that your coccyx and the front of your sit bones root to the center of the planet. Pretend they connect you with the energy of the material world. Exhale when you lower your arms or compress your chest or belly. Breathe out when you stretch into forward bends, twists and side bends. Exhale also when you straighten your back coming out of backward bends.

Regulate your energy level–speed or slow heart and pulse, raise or lower blood pressure with  breathing. Just alter the ratio of inhale and exhale. To waken and energize, breathe in longer than out. Longer inhales oxygenate blood, increase heart speed, raise blood pressure. You can mellow out, decrease heart and pulse rate when, for a few minutes, you exhale longer than inhale.

BENEFIT FROM BANDHAS (Internal Holds)

Throat Hold (jalandara bandha; straight neck variation): After each inhale, pull your crown skyward, turn your chin down toward your throat (until the back of your neck straightens). Then exhale slowly, drop your spine and hold your head up.

BELLY HOLD (uddiyana bandha): When you’ve emptied your lungs, suck your navel back toward your spine and pull your belly up toward your throat.

PELVIS HOLD (mula bandha): Tighten then pulse your pubococcygeal and anal muscles. Imagine you pull energy from the earth through your perineum and up through you belly, throat, out your crown, and from you crown to your partner’s or mirror image’s crown.

Benefits: If male, you can control ejaculation with bandhas. Recognize internal cues to ejaculatory inevitability--twinges in your prostrate and seminal vesicles. When you feel the twinges, if you don’t prevent it, you’ll soon squirt. You can avoid squirting without losing your erection if you take six or more bandha breaths–inhale, throat hold; exhale belly hold then pelvis hold. Women with male lovers can teach them the bandhas.

For everyone, bandhas flatten the belly, pull the internal organs up and condition your visceral and lower back muscles.

If you do the yogic breathing with the bandhas for fifteen minutes or so, energy rushes up your spine and your whole body vibrates in a full-body orgasm.
