variations on bridge pose

Welcome to Day 16 of our 21 Day Yoga Challenge! Today’s video features a few variations on bridge pose including a variation that makes the neck and throat super happy.

There are a plethora of benefits to practicing bridge pose, including:

  • reduces anxiety and stress
  • opens the heart center, allowing you to more easily slip into being compassionate (to yourself or others)
  • massages the organs in the body
  • stretches the quadriceps
  • reduces insomnia
  • feeds the thyroid
  • improves digestion

As you practice today, try bringing something beautiful into your yoga space — your dog, flowers, a candle, etc. Make your space special.

I hope you are enjoying our Challenge. Next up for tomorrow, I’ll send you an audio meditation.

Namaste,

Suzanne

  1. Hi, Suzanne, I love this! My neck and shoulders always get so uncomfortable in the bridge pose, but with the blocks under my feet–no discomfort! I can hold the pose as long as the rest of my body wants to. Thank you for this!
