Uddiyana Bandha / The Abdominal Lock

“Technique”

Stand with your feet one foot apart.
Bend slightly, place your hands on your thighs/knees.
Take a deep breath and exhale forcefully.
Contract your abdominal muscles as much as you can.
Without inhaling, expand the thoracic region.
Gently release your abdominal lock after a few seconds.
Take normal breath and repeat the technique.
You can do it upto three to four times. Each time, you may hold the
abdominal lock for 4/5 seconds.
Uddiyana Bandha should be performed only on empty stomach. It would do well

People suffering from high blood pressure and heart disease should refrain
from practice of Uddiyana Bandha.
