To perform a cat stretching Standing six on your hands and knees, place your hands in a straight line below your shoulders and your knees parallel to your pelvis.

When exhaling - stick your stomach to your back and arch your back up, turn your chin and look down at the floor or mattress.

Repeat these movements 10 times, to loosen the back and improve the range of motion.

2. Upper back stretch with a roll

Lie on your back with your knees bent, place a roll below you across the shoulder blades and fold your hands behind your head.

Use your legs to push yourself and roll the cylinder up and down along your upper back.

Perform 10 reps.

If you do not have a roll, even a yoga pad or a thick rolled-up blanket can do the job.

5. Stretching the Back Thigh Muscles

Sometimes when our back thigh muscles contract excessively, we compensate for this with our backs as we bend or lean forward.

Stretching these muscles can help release them, relieve back loads, and improve pelvic motility.

Start lying down with one leg straight forward, and place the other leg against the wall without stretching the knee too much, hold for 10 seconds and then switch between the legs.

6. Preformis Stretch (Pretzel Stretch)

Lie on the floor or mattress with the face up, crossing the right ankle over the left thigh (with the left leg bent and the foot resting on the floor).

Place your palms under your left knee and gently pull it toward your chest.

Hold like this for about 10 seconds and switch sides - now your left ankle should be placed over your right thigh.
