Benefits:
Often, your back might feel tight first thing in the morning. This gentle stretch releases that tension without stressing your hamstrings.

How it's done:

  • As you exhale, round your back, focusing on creating length in your lower spine.
  • Allow your chin to round toward your chest.
  • On an exhale, return to a neutral spine.

LearnFreeYoga.com is a great teacher.  Here she teaches the Cow Pose and the Cat Pose as these asanas are usually done together.
