To do Bridge Pose, lie on the floor and bend the knees with the heels close to the buttox. Next, push the feel into the floor and lift the hips, keeping the back of the head on the mat, be mindful not to tuck the chin to protect the neck. There are a few options for a bind with the hands, including gripping them under the lower back. The shoulders will move under as the back arches. Release slowly and follow up with hugging the legs.
