5 Reasons To Do Cat/Cow Everyday

The Cat/Cow Flow. You just got to love them!

A favourite among many in the fitness, yoga and physical rehabilitation world, this spinal exercise is simple and offers many great benefits to our mind and body.

According to Dr. Roger Sperry, Nobel Prize recipient for brain research, “90% of the stimulation and nutrition to the brain is generated by the movement of the spine. The more mechanically distorted a person is, the less energy available for thinking, metabolism and healing.”

This flow is often being used as a warming-up exercise and to improve mobility and flexibility of the spine. Combining with correct breathing method, it improves the health of our Lymphatic and Endocrine System through stimulation of the neck, chests, abdominal and pelvic regions, where most lymphatic nodes are clustered and glands are located.

From our energy body point of view, this exercise activates our nadis and potentially balances the chakras.
