Bridge Pose
By Dr Andrew Weil

"Yoga is an excellent promoter of relaxation as well as a good form of nonaerobic body conditioning."
-- Andrew Weil, M.D.

This active version of Bridge Pose calms the brain and rejuvenates tired legs.
Setu Bandha Sarvangasana (SET-too BAHN-dah) setu = dam, dike, or bridge, bandha = lock


- Stretches the chest, neck, and spine
- Calms the brain and helps alleviate stress and mild depression
- Stimulates abdominal organs, lungs and thyroid
- Rejuvenates tired legs
- Improves digestion
- Helps relieve the symptoms of menopause
- Relieves menstrual discomfort when done with support
- Reduces anxiety, fatigue, backache, headache and insomnia
- Therapeutic for asthma, high blood pressure, osteoporosis and sinusitis 

- Use caution if you are currently or have experienced any of the following:

  • Neck injury: avoid this pose unless you are practicing under the supervision of an experienced teacher.

Step by Step

Lie supine on the floor, and if necessary, place a thickly folded blanket under your shoulders to protect your neck. Bend your knees and set your feet on the floor, heels as close to the sitting bones as possible.

and, pressing your inner feet and arms actively into the floor, push your tailbone upward toward the pubis, firming (but not hardening) the buttocks, and lift the buttocks off the floor. Keep your thighs and inner feet parallel. Clasp the hands below your pelvis and extend through the arms to help you stay on the tops of your shoulders.

Lift your buttocks
until the thighs are about parallel to the floor. Keep your knees directly over the heels, but push them forward, away from the hips, and lengthen the tailbone toward the backs of the knees. Lift the pubis toward the navel.

Lift your chin slightly
away from the sternum and, firming the shoulder blades against your back, press the top of the sternum toward the chin. Firm the outer arms, broaden the shoulder blades, and try to lift the space between them at the base of the neck (where it's resting on the blanket) up into the torso.

Stay in the pose
anywhere from 30 seconds to 1 minute. Release with an exhalation, rolling the spine slowly down onto the floor.

Lose Weight, Not Muscle with More Protein

How much muscle did you lose while on that last diet? Too much, probably, according to research showing that dropping pounds could mean losing valuable lean muscle.

A few scientists have even suggested regular dieting could be harmful since muscle is a crucial tissue for so many facets of long-term health.

Dietary protein has long been thought to be the key to protect against dieting-induced muscle loss. Now, a new long-term study from various universities, headed by researchers at the University of Georgia, is confirming that eating higher amounts of quality protein while reducing calories can help maintain muscle mass at the same time as losing weight.

Research Study

Researchers at the UBC Pediatric Audiology Lab are conducting a study to improve the way a new hearing aid is used for infants and young children. In addition, we hope to learn more about how infants and young children hear sound through vibration. If your child is between 0-5 years of age, he/she may be eligible to participate. Both normal hearing children and children with hearing loss are invited to participate.

People hear sound through sound waves in the air and by bone vibrations through the skull bones. A new “bone-conduction” hearing aid uses this technique for people who cannot be helped by standard hearing aids. The hearing aid is a small vibrating device that is positioned on the bone directly behind the ear. Recently these bone-conduction hearing aids became available for children age 5 years and younger. We hope to help improve the way these hearing aids are adjusted by better understanding the mechanical properties of the head for children in this age range. By placing a small vibrating device against your child’s head and a small microphone in his/her ear canal, we can collect important information about bone-conduction hearing. Participation will take approximately 30 minutes, and will be completed in our lab at UBC. You will be paid an honorarium for participating in the study.
