  • Contract the region by pulling up on the muscles of the pelvic floor and relaxing them.
  • Continue to briefly contract and relax this region as rhythmically and evenly as possible.

  • Natural breath.

  • Menstruation.

  • Helps to relieve constipation and depression.
  • Stimulates the pelvic nerves.
  • Positively influences the genital system, the endocrine system and the excretory system.

  • One way to identify this area is to imagine you are stopping the flow of urine when going to the toilet.

  • In Sanskrit mula means root, thus Moola Bandha is the root lock. For men it is located between the anus and the testes and for women between the anus and cervix.
