Hi all!! Welcome back to Yoga pose Tuesday!! Hope your week is doing well and you are enjoying some nice spring weather!!
Today I am going to introduce to a relatively easy pose. It is called the Bridge pose. It can be a little hard if there are shoulder or back issues present. So please be careful when doing this pose.
***On a side note…Please consult with your doctor before doing any new exercise. Also yoga is not meant to be done quickly it is meant to be done gradually. DO NOT force your body into any pose. The more you do them the easier they become.***
Bridge Pose – Setu Bandha Sarvangasana –
- Begin lying on your back.
- Bend your knees and place your feet on the ground hip-width apart with your arms on either side of you reaching toward your heels. Outer edges of your feet are parallel.
- Press into your feet (especially into the big toe mound), lengthen through your tailbone, and lift your hips.
- Interlace your hands together underneath you, and, if it feels good, wiggle your shoulders closer together one at a time. Breathe here for at least three deep breaths.
