Cat-Cow Stretches Warm the Spine
10 Yoga Stretches for Your Daily Routine

Cow and Cat

Continue warming up the back with 5 to 10 cat - cow stretches. If the movement feels familiar, it's because the pelvis is moving in essentially the same way as in the pelvic tilt (see previous step). The cat to cow stretch extends that movement along the entire spine, helping to awaken the entire body. Be sure to pay attention to your breath as you move between these poses.
