Keep your back, shoulders and hips and spine healthy with this short hatha yoga class that focuses on limbering up all of the muscles that help move, and often constrict, the spine. It's a great class for anyone who has lower back or upper back problems, including athletes, people with desk jobs and seniors.

A lovely mellow class to take care of our back. A gentle start to the day or way to end the day. I love how it is more about mobility than stretching.
Thank you Melissa. :)

Great lesson, thank you.
I am an older person who has been doing yoga for 30 + years. I find myself confined to the beginner lessons as I find that the intermediate classes cater more for youthful, stronger cohort. It has been better since you introduced the beginner I and II levels but I feel that the intermediate I lessons should also cater for the experienced, older group of people.

Thanks for this comment. It helped clarify something I've been feeling about the beginner designation of most of the classes I come back to. It would be good to have more intermediate classes that build on the strengths and capacities of older practitioners.
