Last night, before hitting the rack, I went through a simple bridging routine. I alternated the back bridge and the front bridge – with several details that I’ve never taught before.
Anyway, the reasons why I bridge this way are as follows:
1. It puts me into a euphoric state – nice to feel that before bed, don’t you think?
2. It energizes me – just not the type of energy that interferes with sleep – more like the kind of energy where you KNOW your brain is rejuvenated.
3. It increases electrical charge and vibration throughout my entire spine.
4. It makes me aware of energy at a more subtle level – this comes in handy whether you’re a competitive athlete or someone who deals with people for a living.
5. It increases seksual energy. Now, no one is interested in THAT topic, right.
6. It helps burn off belly fat as well as the turkey fat on your neck. If you don’t want a bunch of loose skin hanging from your neck as you age, then be sure to bridge.
7. It increases feeling of groundedness.
Now, the above represent only seven reasons why the bridge is so great.
I’ve written about many others previously, such as elimination of back pain, and so on. Yet, the key is in the doing of the bridge. Anyone can read about it.
Reminds me of a saying I learned long ago, before people started calling me the Zen Master.
It goes like this: “The study of Zen is not Zen.”
So many people today are simply ‘readers.’ They read but don’t do. Or they go on discussion boards and rave about their knowledge. That’s fine – but make sure you DO first.
Afterall, “the study of exercise is not exercise.”
Make sure you take time to bridge today.
And if you can’t do the bridges in my book just yet, if they’re too advanced for you, then start with a light bridge over a Swiss ball. That’ll get you headed in the right direction.
