Yoga – The Cat vs The Crow exercise

Hello there. I’m Dr. Aly Shariff, at Infinite healing Chiropractic and Wellness Center, I am located in Oshawa. And one of the things, I like to always go over some yoga poses, stretches that I think are very beneficial to a patient. Things that could help to strengthen and improve your spinal balance. And the one that I really like here, and we’re going to talk about is, “The Cat Versus the Crow”. It’s a very great pose. It’s a lot of people that I see in yoga using it and stuff. I see that people doing with the home exercise bringing that in. It’s a great pose and you know, Leah here, is going to show us that pose. Okay, so you bring these two both poses together and flow through them. Starting off, with your knees keep them a distance apart. Hands and shoulder a distance apart. Coming into cat, you flow through the hips all the way up to the neck. And you bring the belly down. Inhale, roll through. Roll the shoulders back. Lift up the chest. And as you exhale, still starting at the hip, you flow through, open up your back, relax your head down. And just flowing through, starting at the hips, inhale and slowly exhale. And this opens up the chest as well as the back. Brings more mobility in these areas. If you’re feeling really tight, it really opens it up. And it’s also strengthens me. As you flow through, just slowly you have more control of your muscles. So, hopefully you found this video educational.
