The Bridge Pose is a great way to release stress an can help to decrease all the above symptoms.

Taking time to allow your body to focus on breathing and hold the Bridge Pose between 5 – 15 breaths will help to reduce the above symptoms.

If you suffer with asthma, elevated blood pressure, bone disorders like osteoporosis the bridge pose should not be practiced.
