Warm-Up Poses - Cat Pose (Bidalasana) Cat Pose (Bidalasana)
The Cat Yoga Pose teaches you to initiate movement from your center and to coordinate your movement and breath. These are two of the most important themes in Yoga practice. Keep in mind that the Cat Pose may not be advisable if you have any chronic or recent back pain or injury.

In fact, you can get hurt if you do Yoga Poses incorrectly, or you do not perform some stretching exercises before a Yoga class or session. As much as possible, do some Warm-up exercises so you will be prepared for any Yoga Pose that you want to do.
