BEGINNER’S BRIDGE - TO BALANCE OUT MODERN LIFE

WE spend a lot of our daily lives with our backs bent forward, for example, when working at a computer. Being upside down can help balance this out.

A good way to start would be with a Beginner’s Bridge. Lie on your back, with your knees up and feet flat. Arms by your side.

Lift your hips as high as they can go and puff up for chest. Wiggle your shoulders together and put your hands, palm to palm, under your body to help get the arch higher.

This is great for your hamstrings, bum and back, and is the stepping stone towards more challenging versions and more difficult ‘inversions’ such as handstands.
