 Maha BandhaMaha Bandha is performed in the following manner:

* The left heel is pressed to the perineum. Then the right foot is place on the left thigh.
* The chin needs to be kept firm against the chest, fill in the air and having pressed the air the mind should be fixed on the middle of the eyebrows or in the spine.
* After keeping the air confined for so long then it should be forced out slowly. Now it should be done on the right side.
* According to some Yoga experts the closing of throat is not necessary as keeping the tongue pressed against the roots of the upper teeth makes a good Bandha.
