If you are in yoga teacher training and client comments that they are having back pain then you need to push them toward the Cat-Cow pose. While far from an attractive looking pose, the Cat-Cow pose is great for helping your client ease into a routine that helps to loosen up their back and relieve some of the pain that they may be dealing with. The fact that this pose is super simple is just extra. So to perform the Cat-Cow you will begin on all fours with your hands below your shoulders. Now, spread your fingers wide and inhale. As you inhale you will want to arch your back like a cat that is about to hiss. As you arch you will want to lower your chin to your chest and then tilt it back, like a cow beginning to moo. Do this a few times to make your spine feel less tight and relieve some of the pain your client might be dealing with.
