Eka Pada Setu Bandha Sarvangasana (variation) Bridge Pose
This variation of back-bending pose helps stretch the chest. Also works on the spine and thighs.
With one leg lifted up in this variation, it adds a real challenge on your core muscles. Let’s explore this variation!!!!
Lie on the mat and breath a few times. Bend both knees and place foot on the floor.
Exhale – pressing both palms on the floor push tailbone upward.
Lift up lower back off the floor and also keep thighs and inner feet parallel.
Hold your pelvis and keep your shoulders down. Once this is done gently lift your left leg up straight and breath freely.
Stay in the pose up to 15 to 20 counts at your own comfort. Release while exhaling and gently get back down to the floor. Repeat on the other side.
Improves digestion, calms the brains and also stimulates the thyroid gland.
