podcast: 50 shades of asana.
join our 6:30 a.m. benders on a 60-minute journey through the twisted world of binding.
binds (known as baddhas in sanskrit) are like the hood ornaments of strong poses. they’re a finishing touch that can be really fun and cool. a bind is when you lace your hands together or catch your foot with your hand. (we took some liberties with that definition to get to 50 binds, but you’ll forgive us.)
the most important thing to remember about binding is to keep breathing, only go to your personal edge and keep the integrity in the rest of your posture.
have a blast!
