Combine Cat and Cow Poses to find the dual action for Bakasana. Set up in a tabletop position with your hands and knees closer to each other than usual. Come into Cat Pose by rounding your spine and directing your tailbone down as you lift and spread your shoulder blades. Without losing the breadth across the upper back, extend your breastbone forward as you would in Cow Pose. Hold for 5 to 8 breaths and then come into Downward Dog.
