As Yoga Teacher, often, I came across students with injuries or different body impediments and it is my duty to help them find a safe way to practice like everybody else. There is no need to avoid poses. We can always find a suitable modification to respect our body.
Cat and Cow can be challenging if you have bad knees or injured wrists.
Here, two perfectly fine modifications that won’t stop you to enjoy the benefits of this wonderful asana.
Variation 1 classic Cat and Cow
Variation 2 Cat and Cow for bad knees
If you have pain at your knees don’t force yourself, simply practice Cat and Cow from a standing position.
Variation 3 Cat and Cow for injured or weak wrists
Actually one of my favourite ways to have some Cat and Cow action.
I do this at my desk whenever I feel tired or my shoulders are closing forward
