Overview

The cat stretch is a yoga pose that helps to stretch the lower back, hamstrings, and shoulders. It is a simple exercise that can be done at home or in the office. To do the cat stretch, start on your hands and knees with your hands directly under your shoulders and your knees directly under your hips. Inhale and arch your back, allowing your head to hang down. Exhale and round your back, tucking your chin to your chest. Repeat this movement for 510 repetitions. The cat stretch is a great way to relieve tension in the lower back and improve flexibility.
