Say it: “meow”
Stand in place on one foot and press your opposite foot against your standing leg shinbone, mimicking a flamingo standing on one leg. Soften and relax into spring-loaded knees and hip joints, surrendering your body weight into your standing foot.
When practicing Cat Stance, sense the inner and outer arches of your standing foot. Play with moving the non-supporting foot around like a cat’s tail, moving at different speeds while sinking and rising through the three planes: high, middle and low.

Imagine you’re poised to pounce like a cat!
