BANDHAS & PRANAYAMA

Applying bandhas during the Kumbhaka phase of a Pranayama practice has the effect of slowing down the respiration and heart rate.

JALANDARA BANDHA

Jalandara bandha influences the parasympathetic nervous system through dropping the chin to the chest and contracting the throat. It stimulates the carotid sinuses, which in turn triggers the parasympathetic nervous system to lower blood pressure and slow the heart rate. The effect of not applying these safety mechanisms through Jalandhara bandha could damage delicate blood vessels in the brain.

Lowering the heart rate, the respiratory rate and lowering oxygen consumption, means we can hold Kumbhaka for longer. It is also said a similar effect is stimulated through Uddiyana bandha and Mula bandha.

Pranayama should be smooth and considered. In general, the practice of Kumbhaka would be added after practicing a controlled inhalation and exhalation, and the practice should not be forced. The mind must be focused entirely on the practice.
