Bridge Pose (Setu Bandha Sarvangasana)
Begin lying on your back with your feet flat on the ground, arms resting at your side. With a deep inhale press your feet firmly into the earth and begin lifting your booty off the ground, firming through your thighs. Keep lifting until your thighs feel parallel to the ground, making sure that your feet stay in line with your knees. Once your thighs and booty are lifted clasp your hands underneath you, helping you stay on the tops of your shoulders. Firm through your arms and push your heart towards your chin, keeping your neck flat on the ground.
Once you are in position, breathe deeply and hold for as long as feel comfortable.
Bridge Pose is a gentle back bend and helps stretch the chest, neck, and spine.
The most fundamental part of any yoga pose/sequence is your breath.
Try inhaling for 3 seconds and exhaling for 5,
always making the exhales longer than your inhales.
Breathing is the most IMPORTANT part of yoga, the poses(asanas)/sequences are just a bonus.
