Place yourself on all fours in the shape of a table so that your back is parallel to the floor. Knees should be hip width apart. Look straight ahead of you, while inhaling raise your chin and compress your buttocks while stretching your back and pushing your abdomen downwards in an inverted arch. Now after exhaling follow with a countermovement by arching your back like a cat. You should now relax your buttocks. Hold for a few seconds and repeat the exercise 5 times. Remember for the maximum effect performs the exercise slowly and gracefully like a feline.
