This pose is also known as the cat and cow pose. 

  • It involves slow breathing which is great for relieving the back, spine and neck muscle. This creates mobility in your spine and helps in easing the body. 
  • Place your hands and knees on the floor and make sure that your palms are apart from each other at about a shoulder-length distance. 
  • Keep your spine neutral.
  • Now, inhale and roll your shoulder blades back while you lift your head up and arch your back. 
  • Next, exhale, and pull your navel into the spine while rounding your back and tuck your chin towards your chest. 
  • Repeat this for 10 breaths.

  • Inhale deeply and then exhale slowly. 
  • Next, slowly bend your knees and once your knees are above the ground, with your upper arms press your thighs open. 
  • Squeeze your thighs inwards. 
  • Make sure your chest is lifted and keep your torso upright. 
  • Relax your shoulders and hold for 8-10 breaths.
