This improves oxygenation of the blood and removes energetic blockages in the subtle body. The bandhas are the finishing touch. Co-activate the muscle groups that produce the joint positions and you will create bandhas throughout the body. Then connect these peripheral locks to the core bandhas. This produces stability in the pose and accentuates the sensory imprint of the asana on the mind. The Bandha Yoga Codex is a five-step process that teaches how to identify these ele­ ments and decode any pose.

This synergizes the action of the gluteus maximus in retroverting the pelvis, aiding to protect against lumbar hyperextension. Use the pubococcygeus and piriformis muscles to engage mula bandha and nutate the sacrum. This aligns the sacrum with the iliac bones. helping to prevent hyperextension of the lumbar spine. P U R V O T TA N A S A N A I N C L I N E D P L A N E POSE PURVOTTANASANA IS THE NEXT POSE IN THE PROGRESSIVE BACKBEND SERIES presented here. We started with Salabhasana and then worked our way into Urdhva Mukha Svanasana.

The Bandha Yoga Codex shows you how to do this. There are five elements to every asana. These are the joint positions, the muscles that engage to produce these positions, the muscles that stretch, the breath, and the bandhas. Understanding the joint positions enables you to determine the muscles that produce the posture. Engage the prime movers to sculpt the pose, and polish it with the synergists. Once you know the prime movers, you can identify the muscles that are stretching. Apply physiological techniques to lengthen these muscles and create mobility to deepen the pose.
