If you're having issues with the player:

If you have lower back tightness or pain, sometimes a gentle class where you hold the poses for longer periods of time can be the most effective way to find relief. Sarah-Jane's choice of poses will help you do that in this 30-minute yin yoga class. She helps you release many of the muscles that are commonly involved in lower back issues, and she helps you through it with specific guidance and knowledge of anatomy.

Thank you so much for the lovely comment. It's ok that you didn't do everything to the fullest- it was your first time! Muscles and joints need to slowly gain the memory. It's all connected to your brain as well. This is a gradual practice, with practice you'll go the length needed by your body. Thank you so much for attending and more classes to come!

I walk every day, and coming into this practice after walking is a terrific way to relieve all the ache and tightness that I feel. I learn a lot, too, about paying attention to what my body can currently do, and not pushing beyond into pain. Many, many thanks for this!

First time was harder than I expected. I'm curious to see the benefits. Will keep trying.

Two months post op lumbar surgery and these positions help loosen up very stiff back muscles and all over relaxation.

After 12 hours standing on hard floors at work my low back is screaming by the time I get home. After this my spine feels so fluid, natural and at peace. Thanks so much for this relief!
