Shoulder Bridge is a go to exercise in most Pilates classes because it improves posture, works your core, strengthens your glutes and stabilises your shoulders. Shoulder Bridge has many variations, but they all start with the basic stance: lying on your back with the soles of your feet on the mat, with knees bent and pelvis lifted. The main super power gained from Shoulder Bridge exercise is stability.
