Cat pose is a simple movement that is a great way to nurture our spine, increase blood flow, circulation and release back tension and Back Pain. Sometimes the simplest poses can be the most therapeutic.
I love to do this first thing in the morning to gently wake up my spine, or before bed. You can even do it at work if you are sore from sitting.
If your wrists are an issue for you, this can still be practiced by putting your forearms on a bolster. I also like to put a folded blanket under my knees if your knees are sensitive you can try that.
Sometimes this pose is also called cat/cow, cat/dog or spinal waves.
Either way, this pose by any other name still feels as sweet.
In the video below I’ll walk you through the how-to of Cat Pose.
