Day 5 – Cat/Cow

I don’t know anyone who doesn’t love a good cat and cow stretch first thing in the morning. Today we are focusing on cat and cow.

  • Come into table top
    • Inhale into Cow pose
      • Inhaling, lift your head so your gaze is towards the sky; lift tailbone to the sky; 
      • Lengthen you body from tailbone to your chin; Keep your knees and feet hip width apart. 
      • Toes continuing to curl into the mat
      • Maintaining a line among your wrists, elbows, and shoulders
  • Exhale into Cat
    • Come into tabletop
    • Press into your mat (hands and toes)
    • Round your back, tucking your chin towards your chest, and tucking your tailbone in
    • Breathe into the space between your shoulder blades
  • Feel your body start to loosen as you warm up alternating between cat/cow. 
  • Continue to do this for a few breaths alternating between the two asanas at your own pace.
