Foundation Video–Bridging | Always Pilates
Tania teaches two variations of the bridging movement — Hip Lift and Articulated Bridge.
The Hip Lift variation strengthens your hips and the back of the thighs. The action in this variation helps you learn to bend correctly — using your hip, not your back. Bending from your hip protects your back when lifting, sitting, and standing from sitting.
The Articulated Bridge variation works sequentially through your spine, showing you where it may be stiff and need mobilising.
