Have you ever had one of those days, that by the time you get home you just want to pull all your hair out and scream you’re so stressed? Well, the good news is, yoga is an extremely effective releaser of stress and this bridge pose is immediate relief. Read below to see how you can do the pose at home:
Lie on your back with your knees up and feet flat on the floor hip-distance apart. Let your arms rest by your sides as you lift your hips toward the ceiling. Tuck your tailbone slightly, and draw your belly button in toward your spine.
Once you feel comfortable, interlace your fingers underneath you and gently wiggle to move your elbows and shoulders together, opening your chest. Press down with your hands and feet to increase the lift. Hold 5–15 breaths, then release. Repeat 3–5 times.
