Cat/Cow Stretch

This exercise stretches the muscles and tendons that support your spine.

  1. Start on your hands and knees. Align your arms straight under your shoulders and your knees under your hips.
  2. Look at the floor, keeping your head straight in line with your torso and spine.
    Round your back, lifting your spine toward the ceiling. Your eyes should face your belly.
    Hold for a deep breath.
  3. Slowly lift your chest and tailbone toward the ceiling, letting your stomach sink toward the ground. Your eyes will look up toward the ceiling.
  4. After another breath, gently round your back and lift your spine toward the ceiling again. Alternate between the poses.
