I’ve noticed my baby son doing what looks like bridge pose on his activity mat –especially after long car trips or time in his car-seat stroller. So I thought perhaps he was on to something. Recently, I’ve added bridge and wheel into my practice — integrating it late in my practice once my back is good and warmed up.
The result has been a breakthrough in the motion I am able to get in an area where I feel quite locked up most of the time. For a long time I’ve had back pain; the addition of these poses has produced more relief than I have experienced in a long time.
Have you added (or taken away) anything from your practice that has yielded a breakthrough for you?
