Cat Stretch

Cat yoga pose, yoga pose

Move Targets: Lumbar muscles


Step-By-Step:

Step 1: Begin on all fours on your mat with your hands just under your shoulders and feet under hips. Spread your fingers and tuck your toes to stretch your feet. Center your head in a neutral position with a flat back and soften your gaze downward.

Step 2: Inhale as you draw your belly to your spine and round your back toward the ceiling. The pose should look like a cat stretching its back. Release the crown of your head toward the floor, but don't force your chin to your chest.

Step 3: Take a deep breath, and on your exhale, return to starting position.
