Detailed alignment cues for Bridge Pose

It is often the perfect antidote to prolonged periods of sitting at a desk. The asana helps to open the chest and the front of the shoulders while lengthening the hip flexors and abdominal muscles. It builds strength in the feet, gluteal muscles, lower back and shoulder girdle.

Inversions such as Bridge Pose are believed to stimulate the parasympathetic nervous system which counteracts our stress response and inversions may also lower our blood pressure.
