  1. Hi Lynda,

    I have to limit my time on videos due to my Internet source. I’m on a MiFi device, but from the looks of the image thumbnail of the video, that looks like something I *used* to do and should probably try again.

    Thanks for sharing in Bonnie’s group on Facebook. :)

  3. Bridge is often a part of the yoga series I practice. It does help with any kind of back pain from sitting at a desk all day.

  4. I love doing these- makes my back feel great afterwards. Good to refresh on the proper way of course:)
