Throat Lock/Jalandhara Banhda

This area is of less importance and not activated much in a yoga/activity fitness environment. However, it would be good for the seated dental professional to be aware of it, locate it and be able to activate it particularly during long procedures without breaks. It is found in the throat area, by slightly tucking the chin and drawing the throat back.

Gentle engagement of these bandhas in to engage supportive skeletal muscles will keep the lower torso, mid back and neck muscles tone and balanced to support posture.
