Yoga Tips for Women: Bridge
Bridge- opens chest and strengthens glutes. This is a moderate to intense pose. Be careful if you have lower back problems.
1. Start out on your back with your feet about hip width apart. Your feet should be flat on the ground.
2. Keep your head neck and back in alignment with your chin up. Use your legs and glutes to raise your lower body and put the rest of you upper body weight on your shoulders.
