One thought on “Shoulder Supported Bridge (Setu Bandha Sarvangasana) Yoga Pose

  1. Please give your advice about how to breathe on the way up, and down. I have found that different teachers don’t always do the same… personally I often ask people to contract mula bandha, and exhale coming up (from the root to the crown of the head, feeling each vertebra ). And I like coming back on an exhalation, too.
    But if you want to teach it on a dynamic way (doing several u and down before keeping the asana), it is good to bring the arms up and down too, and then it seems more natural to breathe in, coming up…
    Then what do you mean by “reeat from the other side” ??
    Thank you
