Class Description: 

This is the 2nd and a series of 3 videos that show you how to use the breath, the bandhas and alignment to feel strong and light as you move through a yoga class. In this video, David teaches you how to integrate the 3-part, ujjayi breathing with the activation of your pelvic floor (mula bandha), transverse abdominis (uddiyana bandha) and throat lock (jalandhara bandha) to create stability and lightness in your body, no matter what you are doing. The video before this is The 3-Part Breath and Ujjayi Breathing and the video that follows this one is Finding Stability In All Poses.


Thank you for this video. The

Thank you for this video. The last years I've been noticing that sometimes during the day or during meditation or practice I would randomly start contracting my pelvic floor. I could never understand why I did this or why this muscle even is there. If it really is about stability, then this video is a great opportunity to start exploring and using this sensation and these muscles for the good of my health.
Do you have any sources of where you learned this information?

Laying foundations for an improved practice

This is what I love about DYWM classes. I only had a short amount of time, and having done the 1st of these 3 classes, I was interested to understand more about breathing and the bandhas. Not only did I learn a lot in a short amount of time, I also felt so much better for it. David's teaching style is perfectly paced, allowing me to focus on the internal workings of my body as I breathe. Can't wait for class 3.

Thanks for the feedback. It's great to hear that you are curious about how to find stability when practicing. It's so important! The link to the 3rd class is now above, in the description.

Very informative!

A very informative and well explained video. Looking forward to the third one. It's always nice to know how to improve one's yoga practice, and how to breath and use the bandhas properly during a yoga class is something I've been particularl interested in. So thank you very much for the theory session.
