Yoga has become synonymous with asanas, however the entire practice of Yoga is based on practices of awareness (Kriyas). Pranayama, Mudra and Bandhas are the three most important kriyas that lead to the state of meditation. When these three practices are done with awareness, knowledge and preparation, Yoga becomes sadhana. In this journey to self, pranayama leads to the purification of senses, prana and mind. With a consolidated state of mind one attains Mudra and maintains bandhas in order to maintain one pointed awareness.

Learn these three important practices in Yoga and let your practice be to attain the state of Yoga itself.
