Alright bridge pose. Again this is one that
you’re going to find in almost every beginning yoga class and it frustrates a lot of people.
When I do it I like to use a blanket, and I’m going to place my shoulders right here
at the edge of the blanket because what I don’t want is for my neck to be flat on the
floor. The reason I do this is because I have neck issues. If you have neck issues, I suggest
you do the same thing with the blanket. You’re going to come laying on your back, let your
head, I’m going to take my hair out, let your head fall onto the floor. I’m going to plant
my feet a few inches away from my butt and I’m going to inhale as I press my feet firmly
down into the floor. I’m going to clasp my hands behind me, and I’m going to lift the
pelvis. This pose is so phenomenal for energizing tired legs, but it’s difficult because of
the hip issues we might have from sitting at a desk for hours on end. Inhale, lift the
heart, squeeze the shoulder blades together and then after three to five breaths, exhale.
Don’t forget to support yourself in the pose. You’re supporting yourself on the upper part
of your back and your feet. Let your weight sink into the floor, inhale as you lift and
never ever stop the breath. You’ll find an amazing sense of opening, and an amazing sense
of rejuvenation. Good luck.
