Having tightness in your body can progress to pain. The cat, cow exercise is a general body stretch that can start to relax your body to feel better. And help you know where your body needs some help.
Start in the neutral position. Keeping your body straight as Destiny demonstrate:
Position 2: Cat Pose starts with extending your back above you, stretching your neck to your lower back. You should feel a stretch, but no pain. If so, stop. Hold for 15-30 seconds in this position, or your doctor’s recommendation.
Position 3: Cow Pose pushes the stomach toward the floor. Holding the position, check for body tightness. Hold for 15-30 seconds, or doctor recommended.
