CAT STRETCH, from Rael Isacowitz
Setup: Get into a quadruped position with your hands directly under your shoulders and your knees under your hips. Your trunk is stable and in a neutral position.
1. Exhale and draw your lumbar (lower) spine into flexion, reaching your tailbone toward the ceiling, and allow your thoracic (middle) spine and pelvis to respond.
2. Inhale and move through the neutral spine position, extending your thoracic spine and stabilizing your lumbar spine and pelvis in a neutral position.
The Cat Stretch is also a fantastic exercise to do if you are needing a lower back stretch and is excellent for pregnant women. Happy Days 🙂
