16 SETU BANDHA SARVANGASANA Bridge Pose

Yoga Journal - - HOME PRACTICE -

Lie on your back with your knees bent, feet flat. Lift your hips, and slide a block be­neath your lower back where your sacrum meets your up­per glutes. Choose a block set­ting de­pend­ing on how in­tense you want the stretch, but re­mem­ber that the pur­pose of this pos­ture is to re­store and cool down your body. Lower onto the block, and be­gin to re­lax. You should be able to bal­ance here with­out ef­fort, so if you feel like you’re hold­ing your­self up with your legs or fall­ing off the block, make small ad­just­ments un­til you hit that sweet spot. Close your eyes, and stay here for 8–12 breaths. Then fin­ish with 5 min­utes of Savasana (Corpse Pose).
