Happy day 13! Today we get down on all fours to practice the cat pose. This is a classic back stretching pose. It’s an easy, gentle beginner pose. It is named after the stretching position of a cat.
To perform: Get down on your hands and knees. Your hands should be directly underneath your shoulders and your knees should be hip-width apart. Look straight ahead. Take a deep breath. Exhale and drop your chin to your chest and arch your back up as much as you can. Hold for several seconds. Relax and repeat a few times. This pose works well with the cow pose which we will learn tomorrow.
Cat Pose Benefits:
- Strengthens wrists
- Stretches and loosens neck and spine
- Stimulates adrenal glands and kidneys
- Relieves cramps
