Cat pose benefits
The benefits of cat pose:
Strengthens the whole body including back, tummy & ‘core’
Develops arm, shoulder, rib cage, hand arches & muscles, supporting more complex arm & hand movements such as writing
Stretches wrist joints, developing hand arches & aiding fine motor skills
Refines visual skills by refocusing from ‘distance’ to ‘near’ vision, helping to use the eyes together – binocular vision – essential for reading and writing.
