This week: The Bridge

1. Lie on your back with your knees bent and feet flat on the floor, about shoulder-width apart. Let your arms lie at your sides with the palms facing down.

2. As you inhale, press your feet into the floor and lift your hips, curving your spine away from the ground. Flex your thighs to keep knees hip-width apart.

3. Pressing your upper arms and shoulders into the floor, lift your chest toward the sky. Feel free to clench your butt to keep yourself steady.

4. Exhale your breath, and hold for five to 10 counts.

5. Release on a breath, and slowly roll your spine back to the floor.
