In Sanskrit bandha means to lock, to hold, or to tighten.There are 3 principle bandhas in the body, and a fourth that ties them all together.
The ancient yogi philosophers believe when you master the locks, you master the yoga practice. The practice on the inside becomes a single pointed concentration with steady long breath, and a calm clear mind.
In a western sense, the bandhas help regulate and control all your internal systems, hormonal, sexual, metabolic, digestive and more.
Ujjayi (pronounced oo-jai) is an ancient yogic breathing technique which helps calm the mind and body. Commonly translated as “Victorious Breath”, Ujjayi has a balancing influence on the entire cardio respiratory system.
When done properly, Ujjayi breathing will be both energizing and relaxing. In the Yoga Sutras, Patanjali suggests the breath should be both dirga (long) and suksma (smooth). The sound of Ujjayi is generated by gently constricting the opening of the throat to create some resistance to the passage of air, sounding like ocean waves rolling in and out.
