Cat - Cow Pose (Bitilasana)


Cat - Cow, is a beautiful pose to gently stimulate the spine and the belly organs; often used in a warm-up. It's in almost every yoga class I have ever been to!

The benefits

  • Relaxing and easy to link breath

  • Stretches the back (cat) and abdominal (cow) muscles

  • Gently wakes up the neck
