Supported Bridge Pose
Setu Bandha Sarvangasana
Benefits: Back bending unsupported requires strength, flexibility, and coordination. When you add a block to this pose you are allowed to open your back slowly and safely.
Honest Tip: Supported bridge is a wonderful way to practice the backbend rules without risk of injury. In all backbends engage your low belly, relax your glutes, and allow your inner thighs to soften toward the floor.
