Independence Day is rapidly approaching and we all know what means: Travel.
Whether you are headed to The Hamptons or down to your local beach, we at CARAVAN want to make sure that you’re fully equipped with effective, science-backed tools to aid your restless traveling days.
In our class “Airplane/Car Release,” CARAVAN teacher Liz explores stretches and poses that are easy to do when seated for long travel durations, such as the Cat-Cow pose.
The Cat-Cow is a flow that goes between two poses: The “cat” pose, creating an arched back, and the “cow,” creating a sunken one.
Let us give you a brief run-down of how it’s done:
“Bring your hands right along the side of your seat,” said Liz. “Let’s do some ‘cats and cows.’”
The Cat-Cow For When You’re Seated:
This Cat-Cow pose is great for stretching and has been identified as a tool that can provide, “favorable effects on cardiorespiratory endurance, muscular strength and endurance, and flexibility,” by a 2015 12-week clinical yoga trial.
