Pranayama, Mudra & Bandha

Pranayama, Mudra and Bandhas are the three most important kriyas (practices of awareness) 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.
