Build yourself a new bridge for stronger hips and hamstrings. We start with a blanket under the hips to traction the low back. Add some leg extensions to open up the front body and prepare you for a bridge with your feet on a chair. This shift of ground will increase your awareness - as all new things do! - and builds more strength in hips and hamstrings than your boring old bridge. With practice, you will feel yourself rising higher and feeling stronger. This boost of strength will have you feeling more light and more stable in your basic bridge. And stronger hips and hamstrings will also translate into better balance and more fun in other poses!
