What happens in a one to one Mindfulness Session?

Is Mindfulness Therapy?

Bidalasana

Bidalasana is also called as Marjariasana, this name comes as the body resembles the cat, while it stretches rounding its back. Hence the name Cat Pose too, a pose generally done in the dynamic way along with the Cow Pose, Bitilasana. Considered to be a simple foundation pose, which can be done by anyone, the maximum use of the core muscles here will help in toning the muscles around the backbone. While in this pose, the idea is to work on making the spine as flexible as that of Cats, it also helps to release tensions around the hips, lower back and neck.
