To flow gracefully and effortlessly in and out of poses, it's essential to stay vibrant and grounded in the breath. Come study the essential and elusive activity of Mula Bandha and the strong, grounding effect of correct Ujjayi Pranayama. The actual Mula Bandha is a conjunction of complimentary movement patterns, which open the central axis of the body right up through the root of the palate. We'll flow seamlessly through these movement patterns, following the thread of the central axis.
