Flows

Cat to Cow yoga flow

Combining cow pose and its counter pose, cat pose (marjariasana), makes for a beneficial, dynamic flow. As you exhale out of cow pose, transition immediately into cat pose. Then, as you inhale out of cat pose, transition back into cat pose. Hold each pose for several seconds, switching between the two in rhythm with your breath.
