How to engage your mula bandha: In a flowing yoga class, such as Vinyasa, you would move through the class with this lock engaged at about 50% of what you are capable which helps to stabilize the pelvic bowl.
Try to control peeing mid-stream by employing your Mula Bandha. Lifting the pelvic floor functions to stop and start the flow in a manner similar to Kegels. These same muscles and lift for women are used when squeezing the penis or anything else once inside the vagina. For women, engaging these muscles while thrusting or rotating will help to add more friction and stimulation to the clitoris.
For men, engaging the Mula Bandha will hold back the need to ejaculate right away (without thoughts of Margaret Thatcher naked on a cold day). It will also keep the mood in the right place.
Additional exercises you can do to strengthen the Mula Bandha anywhere include the following: Counting Bandha builders. Start by working with your breath and engaging your Bandha to the count of three, then release to the count of three. Next step, breathe and try four and four. For each new breath try adding increments of one until you are able to build up to a count of 10 and 10. Then put all that hard work into action!
