But asanas have subtle effect in pranic(energy) body as well.If asanas are praticed with awarenes , these are more effective and unblock the nadis(energy channels).According to yogic text , there are 72000 nadis in the body. If these are blocked , we get diseases.So asanas are helpful in removing energy blockges.Asanas remove energy blockages from annamaya kosha(food sheath) so that prana(energy) becomes subtle enough to enter the next energy sheath. Annamaya kosha is one of the panch koshas(five energy sheath). What is yoga teacher training? Students practice different pranayamas in this yoga course.

Bandhas(energy locks) can be practiced seperately or these are practiced with pranayamas.According to yoga philoshoply , energies are flowing in different directions in subtle body.By applying the bandhas during pranayamas , these reverse the dirctions of energies.So there can be bursting and we can experience the spiritual awakening.
But bandhas are beneficial for throat ailments.These balances the digestive system , reproductive system , excretory system.These tones the nervous system and imrpoves blood circulation.

In yoga, mudrās are hand gestures that are used in conjunction with pranayama (yogic breathing exercises) to help stimulate different parts of the body, which in turn have a positive effect on one’s mood.

Bandha' (bond, arrest) is a term used for the "body locks" in Hatha Yoga. Bandhas are engaged to gain control and lock your energy (pranayama or life force) the way you want. The locks are engaged to obtain control of your energy system, and to direct that energy to the parts of your body that needs it. There are four main bandhas in the body and the student will learn these:

  • Mula Bandha - contraction of the perineum

  • Uddiyana bandha - contraction of the abdomen into the rib cage

  • Jalandhara Bandha - tucking the chin close to the chest

  • Maha Bandha - locking of the Mula, Uddiyana and Jalandhara bandhas at the same tim

Whatever you do with full attention and awareness is meditation. "Watching” your breath is meditation; listening to the birds is meditation. So long as these activities are free from distractions to the mind, it is effective meditation. Students will learn and practice various meditation techniques.
