Sunday Briges--Spinal Bridge

Here I am desperate again for a 'bridge' photo. The above photo of spine-heeled boots that are almost guaranteed to throw your back out of line was taken last fall, and I really wanted to use it. Thanks to Google, I found spinal bridge and can post it today!
You can click on the link to see what a spinal bridge yoga exercise looks like, but briefly, it:
  • Stretches your chest, neck, spine and hips.
  • Strengthens your back, buttocks, and hamstring muscles.
  • Calms your brain and central nervous system which helps alleviate stress and mild depression.
  • Massages abdominal organs and improves digestion.
  • Stimulates the lungs and thyroid glands and helps relieve the symptoms of menopause.

Check out other bridges, beneficial or not, at LOUIS LA VACHE'S SUNDAY BRIDGES.
