This was probably the most powerful class I've ever done! Thank you for such clear and important instructions on how and to activate Bandhas during Asana practice. I agree that all too often teachers just randomly instruct to active a particular Bandha at the wrong time or during an inhale, as you were saying. I feel amazing now having done this practice and I'm with you 100% that if it comes down too it and you only have 10 minutes to practice yoga- asana can't touch this in comparison.. That is what I have experienced at least. Namaste~

What a great yoga class. I loved the teachings. Is there a good book on this topic?

burning question...
When doing the exhale for uddiyana bandha... do you simply exhale completely with or without the extra sucking in of the solar plexis ( as if inhaling but not taking in air) to get that great hollowed out area under the ribs?
Love the practice and most curious about the exhale as I have always been taught the extra pulling in and up under the rib area.

Wow. Deeper learning - brings together and sheds light on many years of study. Took things to a new level.
Agreed - a teacher's teacher. Thank-you Rod!

This country has been flooded with many yoga instructors. Teachers are a bit more rare. Thank you, thank you, thank you for a video from a teacher of teachers. Rod is deeply steeped in this beautiful practice and all it's gifts it has to offer. Yippie!

Rod and MYO, I can't thank enough for this experience. I feel amazingly different; I do not have words to describe it as it is so new to me. Wonderful!
