The Bridge Pose | Yoga Poses

Bridge pose helps enhance the alertness of your mind, body and soul. It not only helps strengthen your back but also improves your flexibility and opens up your chest thus improving your respiratory system.

The posture is quite simple unlike many other yoga poses as it requires you to lie down on your back in a straight posture. Now place your feet on the ground and bend your knees.

Your hands should not be touching your feet or your knees. It is advised to maintain a distance between your hips in order to give your body some space to stretch.

Now gradually lift yourself and your hips in an upward direction with your arms and feet placed on the ground. If you are unable to balance yourself in this position then you can place your arms behind your back. Hold yourself in this position for at least 5 – 10 breaths. .
