Fire up your body’s inner power with this short yet essential exercise as Mieko Carey demonstrates how to properly execute Bridge Pose – a classical move that can be modified to suit anyone’s ability. This pose will strengthen the glutes and core muscles while stabilizing the trunk, pelvis, and legs in optimal alignment with movement – resulting in better body awareness and aiding relaxation.
While the movement of lifting the hips up and down while lying on your back may seem basic, this move is a powerhouse of an exercise that can benefit people with back pain, professional athletes, and anyone in between.
