This video teaches how to isolate the stretch to the lower back when in a forward fold. This is incredibly useful for those who have particularly tight muscles around the lower back, and even more so for those who have hyper lordosis (exaggerated lower back curvature).

What a great view
This was just what I needed tonight! I had tightness in my lower back after one of the yoga classes that I did on this site, so I happened to look through the tutorials and found this. I will be using this stretch now that I know how effective it is. Thanks, David!
I have a problem with my lower back and found this quite painful to do - does this mean I shouldn't do it? It's hard to tell as I am usually in pain and I don't know whether that is intensifying during yoga poses so I'm often unsure whether I should continue with them. If you can recommend any poses specifically for lower back, left shoulder and neck pain please I would be very grateful. :)
