does anyone know of resources to find the history of this pose?


Seymour, if you look at the various categories found here under Anatomical Focus, there is also a category for poses that stimulate the prostate. Don't be so quick to judge, and maybe practice some more meditation.

Bridge Pose
Setu Bandha Sarvangasana
Anatomical Focus
Really? Uterus??? Obviously, YJ must think both females and males have a uterus as a part of their anatomy. Maybe YJ needs to start being a little more inclusive than exclusive in its readership aims.

Thanks, Seymour


if I'm staying in this pose for 5 minutes, is it okay?


Is bridge pose a safe prenatal yoga pose?

Since you list only the uterus under anatomical focus for this pose, I suppose men don't need to do it. Or is it that you think yoga is only for girls?

Awesome! I had back pains and they went away for 10 min after I did this pose.


if in this pose we grab our ancle with our hand what's the name of the pose gonna be?


You shouldn't be lifting your head in this pose. You shouldn't be turning your head either.


I'm unable to lift my head off the floor in the 2nd stage.. Any suggestions?
