Supported Bridge PoseYoga for Pelvic Health with Shannon Crow
Today I talk about why supported bridge pose is such a great way to become aware of the pelvic floor and to let it have a little rest.
All day we are walking around with pressure on the pelvic floor due to our abdominal organs and gravity. With this pose, we can let gravity and the natural movement of the exhale work to move pelvic floor and the respiratory diaphragm.
Give it a try and tell me what you think.
