Cat – Cow Pose

Cat – Cow Pose

Step by step

1. Start on all fours, bringing the wrists underneath the shoulders and the knees underneath the hips

2. Think of the spine as a straight line connecting the shoulders to the hips. Visualise the line extending forward through the crown of the head and backwards through the tailbone

3. Curl the toes under

4. Drop the belly

5. Take the gaze up toward the ceiling

6. Let the movement in the spine start from the tailbone, so that the neck is the last part to move

7. On the next exhale, release the tops of the feet to the floor

8. Round the spine

9. Drop the head

10. Take the gaze to the navel

11. Repeat the Cat-Cow stretch each inhale and exhale, matching the movement to your own breath

12. Continue for 5-10 breaths, moving the whole spine. After your final exhale, come back to a neutral spine
