Bandhas are subtle "locks" or the energetic activation of parts of the physical body that affect every level of your being (physical, pranic, mental and spiritual). Because they can lead to esoteric powers there is often a voyeuristic thrill about learning to apply them. Or perhaps people are just fascinated to investigate their perineum and pelvic floor to find their mula bandha! But either way, they are valuable tools to sharpen your yoga practice.
Bandhas arise from asana (not the other way around.) When you achieve correct alignment, then the bandhas arise naturally to support postures, contain energy/prana and strengthen your practice and its effects. They are the foundation to really effective practice to transform your life and your outlook.
Come and learn how for yourself.
