Bandhas enliven and wake up the nervous system and activate glands. They promote youth and connect the energetic systems with the body. They uplift and strengthen the bones, connective tissues and surrounding joints when practiced with asana. The practice of bandhas increases flow of fresh blood flushing away old, dead cells. Organs are strengthened and rejuvenated, and circulation is improved. Bandhas are also beneficial for the brain centers and help to strengthen the pelvic floor which helps to prevent many problems and improve function.
