Upward Abdominal Lock (Uddiyana Bandha )

Set of drawings of women performing the Upward Abdominal Lock

Upward Abdominal Lock is an advanced breathing exercise that strengthens the abs and diaphragm. The Upward Abdominal Lock can help with circulation, and is known to increase something called “Gastric Fire”, which can improve digestion. Yogi’s with hernia, heart disease, high blood pressure, or glaucoma should consider avoiding this breathing exercise.

There are multiple ways to achieve this exercise and most teachers will use it in the beginning of a practice. A few other tips are to always do this on an empty stomach, and try starting to learn this Bandha standing before attempting it in a sitting position.
