Sit in any comfortable meditation posture with the head and spine straight.  Place the hands on the knees in chin or Gyana Mudra. Close the eyes and relax the whole body.  Take the awareness to the urethra.  Inhale, hold the breath in and try to draw the urethra upward.  This muscle action is similar to holding back an intense urge to urinate.  The testes in men and the labia in women should move slightly due to this contraction.  Try to focus and confine the force of the contraction at the urethra.  Bending a little forward during the contraction helps to isolate this point.  Hold the contraction for as long as comfortable.  Exhale, release the contraction and relax. Make sure to practice twice more.

Hold the contraction for as long as is comfortable, starting with a few seconds and gradually increasing.  Make sure to begin with four contractions and slowly increase up to thirteen or fifteen rounds.  This Mudra may be practiced at any time, preferably when the stomach is empty.  This Mudra should not be practiced by people suffering from infection and inflammation of the urethra as the irritation and pain may increase.  This Mudra regulates and tones the entire Uro-genital system, correcting incontinence and recurrent urinary tract infections. It also helps overcome psycho­sexual conflicts and unwanted sexual thoughts. Sahajoli corrects uterine prolapse. Vajroli balances testosterone levels and the sperm count, and gives control over premature ejaculation. It also helps correct impotence by toning the endocrine system and local energy structures. Benign prostatic hypertrophy, a disorder that troubles eighty percent of men in the later part of life, is prevented.

Note: The word Vajroli is derived from the Sanskirt root Vajra which means ‘Thunderbolt’, ‘Lightning’ or ‘Mighty one’, and Sahajoli from the root Sahaj, meaning ‘Spontaneous’ and Oli which means ‘To Cast Up’ or ‘To Fly Up’. Vajrloi is therefore the force which moves upward with the power of lightning and Sahajoli is the psychic attitude of spontaneous arousing.  Vajra is the name of the Nadi which connects the reproductive organs with the brain.
