The Benefits of Yogic Binds

What takes a normal yoga pose and makes it a bind? Yogic binds involve rotating the torso and shoulders and clasping the hands together. They require both intense focus to help stay in the pose, and flexibility to actually get into the pose.  Binding can help take your yoga practice to the next level and deepen your pose. It also engages muscles and aids in digestion by stimulating the abdominal organs.

Binds can be difficult to get yourself into. It takes the proper balance between effort and ease. To little effort may prevent properly getting into the pose, but to much effort may cause an injury. Follow the step-by-step instructions in this infographic to try and preform some classic yogic binds at home.
