1. Begin by moving into Cow pose (moooo!)… On all 4's. Inhale as you drop your belly towards the mat. Lift your chin.
2. Next, move into cat pose (meeeooww!) As you exhale, draw your belly to your spine and round your back toward the ceiling. The pose should look like a cat stretching its back.
3. Release the crown of your head toward the floor, but don't force your chin to your chest. Inhale, coming back into Cow Pose, and then exhale as you return to Cat pose.
Repeat 5-10 times, and then rest by sitting back on your heels with your torso upright.
I hope you have enjoyed practicing this stretch and the others that are available in our how to exercise blog.
