Bridging – for spine articulation, breath control and strengthening the pelvic floor
- Lie on your back with your knees bent and your feet still flat on the floor.
- Keeping your arms on the floor, and palms facing down, gently lift your spine off the mat (or the floor) until you’re holding your weight on your shoulder blades and shoulders. Hips and knees should be aligned.
- Inhale in this position, and, as you lower your body back to the floor, exhale.
- Repeat this movement pattern 5-10 times, depending on how you’re feeling.
