In Cat movement, the muscles either side of the spine are elongated, whilst the abdominal muscles and organs are contracted. In Dog Tilt, the back muscles are contracted, allowing the contents of the abdomen to be stretched and opened. These two positions balance each other. They help to stimulate blood flow to the spine and to the core body; thus creating space along the spine and ensuring healthy digestive function. Through this quiet, uncomplicated work, space can be found to deepen self-knowledge.
Avoid this movement if you have severe Knee Issues
The movements here are helpful for healthy spines and for getting fresh blood to the brain. A healthy spine is a healthy, alert, central nervous system, and fresh blood in the brain boosts learning capacity. This paced flow has a very calming effect. Teachers Dialogue: Make it fun by using animal noises. Cat/Dog Tilt H quietly you can meeoww (back scops down) and woof (back arches up), like kittens and puppies. That’s KITTENS and PUPPIES not dogs and cats! Down Dog When you go into downward dog, imagine that you are a dog waking up from slumber, having a stretch and having a yawn if you want to! Have you ever seen a dog do that stretch?
