If you're having issues with the player:

During yoga, people are often more aware and active in the front of their bodies than the back of their bodies. This hatha class with Josh will have an emphasis on bringing more life and sensation to the back half of your body, inviting more space and sensation into your yoga experience.

This can either be done as a stand-alone class or as Day 12 of Total Body Flexibility And Health 14-Day Yoga Challenge For Men.

7/18/21. After some low-back straining yard work, this felt fantastic! Very slow practice (first 5 minutes are sitting and breathing) with precise and effective instructions to stretch, loosen, and lengthen the back. Great guidance by Josh, as always. Excellent for low back relief or simply as a peaceful & very mellow practice. Thank you!

I discovered Josh via his Glute blast class yesterday, and loved it so much that today after a long bike ride I decided to search for more of his classes because I felt that his gentle pace and soothing voice would be perfect for an evening practice. This was perfect, I hold a lot of tension in my back so this felt really good. I struggle to slow down at times, and this class helped. Thank you Josh!

My first Josh class and won’t be my last. I’m more of a Rachel, Tracey, Fiji kinda yogi but wanted something more soothing today. This was perfect, Nice pace, excellent instruction and smooth flow. Thanks!

I like the concept, but that class demanded far more flexibility than I have. Please consider making a version of this for those of us who just don't bend.
