The “cat” position is when you are four feet on the floor, that is, you have four supporting points: palms and knees. Your coat is horizontally dusty with the floor, the neck follows the line on the back – breathe deeply and freely. Without changing the basic position, stretch your back in an arch and stay in that position for 15 to 30 seconds.
