How to Do the Cat Pose in Yoga

10 of 12 in Series: The Essentials of Yoga

In yoga, the cat pose is a tilt movement that elongates your spine and eases tension in your back. Try the cat pose by following these steps:

  1. Rest on your hands and knees, with your belly facing the floor.

  2. Inhale deeply.

  3. Exhale and pull in your abdominal muscles, tailbone, and butt.

  4. Pressing down on your hands, press your back toward the ceiling so your spine rounds.
