Cat & Cow Pose

Body Basics – Cat & Cow Pose

A gentle flow between inhale and exhale to warm up the spine and increase mobility. It encourages to open up the chest, softly stretches and stimulates the abdominal organs. Coordinating this movement allows for the breath to become slow and deep. This movement is great for beginners starting yoga. It also promotes postural awareness and balance throughout the body.

 

Steps

Inhale to cow (inhale as you begin to drop the belly towards the mat, life the chin and draw shoulders away from ears)  > exhale to cat (push the floor away as your round your spine and let the chin drop towards the chest). 

 

Contradictions

Wrists > you can also do this sequence on your forearms

Knees > Fold the mat in half or put a blanket underneath them for support
