Bridge pose is a strengthening pose for the lower body, a stretch for the spine, as well as a gentle inversion. But what are we even doing in this pose?

In this video we’ll explore:

  • Pelvis awareness: how to tuck and tilt the pelvis (and where it’s supposed to be in bridge pose)
  • Should we engage the glutes or not?
  • How to protect the low back from compression in this pose
  • Several arm variations that work for different bodies and ranges of motion
  • How to use props for resistance to clarify muscular engagement for our lower body
  • Want more support?
