In part 3 of Fiji's 4-part series on lower back health, Fiji's focus is on releasing the key muscles that can be responsible of lower back discomfort and pain. She carefully moves into gradually deeper stretches for the hips, legs and lower back, ensuring that everything she does with you is moving toward an outcome that includes pain relief, flexibility and strength. The entire program, Vinyasa Yoga for Lower Back Care, can be found on our Yoga Programs page.


Short and Effective

If you don’t have lots of time but want to wring yourself out like a wet rag, this is perfect. Just gentle enough that you don’t break a sweat but you go as deep as you need to stretch what is stuck.

Great Class

This class works so well for me. I used to have persistent lower back pain and luckily it has largely disappeared probably partly due to yoga. Whenever it flares up a little, this is my go to class and always makes me feel so much better. Thanks Fiji!

I think it’s important for

I think it’s important for users to know which kind of lower back pain this session is good for. I have chronic lumbar pain caused by my discs, and much of the stretches in this video are the exact opposite of what I’ve been taught to do for my pain. Maybe this stuff is more for muscular tightness.

This is my go-to class weekly to make sure that my low back stays healthy. I feel great every time!

Advice please.

Thank you, Fiji. I have an ongoing problem with my lower right back that affects my sciatic nerve. It also goes up into my cervical spine and right shoulder. I will see how the effects of this class feel in my back later today. Currently, I felt the tension move from lower right back into my least it moved!!! But as you said, it may just need rest.

I will take any advice you can offer!
