Healing Your Pelvic Floor After Childbirth with Mula Bandha

By engaging the mula bandha (root lock) one can heal after childbirth. On an anatomical level, it requires an engagement of the pelvic floor muscles as well as the transverse abdominis, the deep abdominal muscle layer that wraps around your torso from back to front. Mula bandha can also initiate a deeper sense of stability in both the body and the mind.
