1. Start on all fours, bringing the wrists underneath the shoulders and the knees underneath the hips.
2. Think of the spine as a straight line connecting the shoulders to the hips. Try visualizing the line extending forward through the crown of the head and backwards through the tail bone. This is the position of a neutral spine.
3. Keep the neck long, as the natural extension of the spine.
On an Inhale:
1. Drop your belly, but keep your abdominal muscles hugging your spine
2. Take your gaze up toward the ceiling
3. Let the movement in the spine start from your tailbone, so that your neck is the last part to move
On the next Exhale:
1. Round your spine
2. Drop your head
3. Take your gaze to your navel
Repeat the cat-cow stretch on each inhale and exhale, matching the movement to your own breath.
After your final exhale, come back to a neutral spine
